"If I could (contact her), I want to tell her right now that I am sorry for my actions that night". I know it's going to be hard. "I made a bad choice and I'm not going to let this bring me down".

Incredibly, Hunt was not even interviewed and went on to play 11 games this season before the bombshell TMZ post.

Ottinger immediately filed a complaint against Hunt, who countered by filing a complaint against her.

"The Chiefs are right". Kareem was not truthful in those discussions.

He was released by the chiefs on Friday, and remains on the commissioner's exempt list. ESPN reported Sunday morning that the league did not interview Hunt or the woman involved during its investigation. "I don't blame them for anything". "They pretty much said we love you, everybody cares about you, and just we have to let you go".
