Was Clark Hunt involved in the Chiefs’ Marcus Peters suspension?

New, comments

We don’t know much about who Andy Reid talked to before or after the Kansas City Chiefs decided to suspend Marcus Peters. Andy Reid has talked about the Chiefs team leaders before but didn’t name them recently, he just said that we know who they are.

That made me wonder: Who did he talk to about suspending Peters? Did he talk to Clark Hunt? The voice of the Chiefs Mitch Holthus joined Kevin Kietzman on 810 this week and talked about Clark’s involvement.

“Those two (Clark Hunt and Andy Reid) discuss a lot all the time weekly. It’s not just this week or this situation. I would think that, in fact, knowing both of those guys, Clark Hunt is going to leave the decision up to Andy. I don’t think he would set any kind of mandate or say this has to be done. That’s not the way the Clark Hunt I know operates. He’s in a realm too where he’s gonna trust Andy Reid to make the right decision. Did they discuss? Probably almost assuredly they did. However, he was gonna leave it up to Andy’s call.”

That’s what I expected. I haven’t gotten the impression that Clark Hunt mettles. I think he’s involved but I don’t think he’s making football decisions.
