EA Has Removed Kareem Hunt From The Madden NFL 19 Roster and Madden Ultimate Team

While the NFL botched the Kareem Hunt investigation, EA Sports reacted swiftly and removed him from the Madden NFL 19 roster and Madden Ultimate Team. A generic player with the same stats will replace Hunt, if he was on your MUT roster.

Kareem Hunt had an overall 92 rating, behind only Todd Gurley II (Overall 96), Le’Veon Bell (Overall 94) and tied with Christian McCaffrey, as the top rated running backs in the game.

    Hunt is still in the game on my CFM but I'm also just starting season 2024 so I'm not even sure the roster updates work for me

    If you’ve already had a franchise going before update , he will still be on

    There was a update today , presumably the main purpose was to remove Hunt , but which also updates the majority of transactions since Thursdays update, I should imagine normal service will be resumed on Thursday though regardless
    CFM is a different beast as he will continue to be in any on going CFM , and reappear in any new CFM started using today's ( or future) update as he is on the base player database already present in CFM which it 'melds' with any imported roster ,
    So as far as CFM is concerned he will be a FA in any new start until such a time as EA removes him (via a patch not roster update ) in the same way retired players are
    My madden ultimate team has a lot of Chiefs players on it well because I'm a Chiefs fan. As soon as they cut him I to my Hunt 89 over power up card and got as many training points back that I could for it and sold it for 1500 coins. Then I picked up and 85 overall Latavius Murray team of the week card to replace him.
    As far as my sim franchise goes I moved Hunt off the roster and signed Charcandrick West and started over from week one. Funny I signed him before the Chiefs did lol.
    they didnt do this with a certain Ravens RB did they? As an outsider its amazing to see a Sports organisation without the full facts or the ability to get the same, be able to affect a career so much without the person being found guilty by their peers beyond reasonable doubt first.

    Kareem Hunt was under contract. If he feels we was unjustly cut he can sue. *That* is his due process.

    Yes they did remove Ray Rice. Hunt cant play on any team anyways until this get sorted out. I'm no Dick Tracy but hard to deny video evidence.

    One minor detail: Hunt was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List. Any team is free to sign him, but he can't play until Goodell says so.

    Yeah I know, but so was Ray Rice and EA did the same thing.

    ?Ueauvan. It's on video man.haha There is absolutely nothing that could justify the actions. What else are you looking for?

    And he already admitted it being a mistake & apologized, so um there is that.
    Is there a way to remove him from the game if you still have him in my current CFM? Even if i were to release him from KC he would be in teh FA pool and get resigned so dont know how to remove him permanantely.

    You could cut him and then edit his ratings so that he's so bad no one would sign him.

    Actually the Chiefs did wait for the fulls facts to come out. They were aware of this incident months ago. The problem for Hunt was that part of the team's fact finding process was when they asked him what happened and he lied to them. Lying to your employer is always a bad idea regardless of what your peers might think.
    The other alternative is to sim until there's no real players on any roster so then you know you have nothing but choirboys who would never do anything malicious otherwise you could always pretend that there's nothing but upstanding citizens in the Madden NFL game anyways.
    Umm why would EA delete him from the game...? Now listen I'm not sticking up for the guy, but the fact remains ANY team in the league could sign this ultra talented kid ANY day now.. although presumably I don't see him being signed until a major injury befalls a possible playoff team at the RB position.
    And most likely most teams won't sign him, we know this.
    The dude made some really idiotic mistakes but he's still extremely young and a top 5 RB in the league TBH.
    I see a team giving him a chance at the absolute latest by the beginning of next season if he doesn't get signed by playoff time.
    Who is EA to completely delete a player? If they're eligible to be signed right now? Not likely I admit but also this is EA being completely non authentic to the game. Kareem's an idiot but most likely will learn from his mistake. Any team in the NFL can give him a second chance yet any videogame player isn't allowed to give him a second chance lol...
    If a team signs him he's still suspended until the NFL decides he can play again. No one is going to sign him this year because he won't be able to play for them this year, in all probability.

    I don't think a team will sign him,... Not only this season since he can't play anyways, but maybe not next season either. If Kaepernick is pretty much banned and Ray Rice never got another shot, why would Hunt? He has three people accusing him now of battery.
    There is a college DT .... Jeffery Simmons of Miss st who is a top 10 talent but may go undrafted because of the video of him beating a woman who is on the ground. When you get caught on video, that's BAD news when it comes out!

    I am fairly confident that he will. The Redskins are getting backlash right now for signing Ruben Foster but next year it won't be as fresh. Mixon's video was widely seen and very bad coming out and he got drafted because he is young and talented.Ray Rice was considered already washed up at that time and Kaepernick is another story.Maybe if teams felt he was a franchise qb it would be different but they'd rather sign garbage retreads as stopgaps or emergency replacements.

    Mixon was a freshman in college and just turned 18 an hour before that took place. And was drafted by the Bengals who draft every character issue player.
    And Rice was only 26 when that happened, he want waited up. He wasnt having a great year but no RB on that team had a good year. Their OL wasnt very good.
    Big difference is Hunt did this while in the NFL. Maybe a team does sign him next year.....if he gets cleared to play. But, the Dude has three accusors now and one reported it to the Chiefs who did nothing. We'll see. You never know.
    As far as EA is concerned, they have every right to remove him ( and who knows if the NFL asked them to)and IF he is reinstated, they can put him back in the game next year. I don't see the problem with it.

    I don’t agree with them removing him either, especially considering he definitely has a chance at finding a new team because of what he brings on the field.

    Can’t really compare Kaep to Hunt. Hunt is young and a top 5 RB in the NFL. Can’t say the same for Kaep at his position. Is Kaepernick really worth the backlash and drama he would bring? You have a lot of people out there that don’t exactly like Kaepernick. The issue could also get worse for whoever signs him if his anthem kneeling doesn’t stay in the past. In my opinion Foster comes with much more upside at this point then Kaepernick does. A player like Kaepernick simply isn’t really worth the baggage he brings. If he was a top 5 QB in the NFL I’m sure he’d be signed.
    Hunt could very well be worth the backlash he would bring.

    I'm not comparing him to Hunt, I am comparing Kaep to the likes of Mark Sanchez, Colt McCoy, Matt Barkley, Garrett Gilbert, Cardale Jones, Brent Hundley, Blane Gabbert, Trever Siemian, and I'm sure I am missing a few others....all who have or have had jobs this season. Can't tell me Kaep isn't better than those guys. Wouldn't surprise me if somebody signed Tebow before Kaep.
    Not to mention his buddy Eric Reid got a job this year while kneeling beside Kaep. There wouldn't be any drama had the NFL not made it so nobody wants him. Right now there would be no mention of him at all if he were signed.
    We'll see what happens with Hunt but I think he screwed himself like many of these idiot's do.

    Ray rice punched a woman in the face knocking her flat on her face. Hunt gave a woman a shove and then made an attempt at a kick which barely made contact. Still a ****head move but no where near what Rice did. Hunt will be on a team next season. Take it to the bank.
    Reid is at Carolina, i believe he still takes a knee and the Panthers knew he would do that. Kap has been handed an effective ban for his free speech. a lot of people over here think he should be lauded and supported by not only fans but also the NFLPA and NFL. Please dont jump on me but is this not like Flag burning during Vietnam? As an aside I dont think Kap has ever mentioned that disrespect was meant to those serving, vets or those that have died for their country
    I always had doubts about him as my team's qb, i have never questioned his integrity.

    I'd edit his ratings and move them all down, then change his name to something random. Then cut him and he will never pop up.

    With the amount people pay and effort given to make this a playable game, people and league owners don't need Madden being woke and deciding if he should be in the game. Should be left up to individuals. I have zero problem with him being in the game. He didn't violate the domestic violence policy, he is a freaking football player not some high ranking government official.
    Call me crazy, but EA is licensed by the NFL, so, if the NFL has him on the exempt list, expect the company with a license with The Shield to follow suit.
    Once he's allowed back in, I'm sure EA will put him back in the game.
    I'm pretty disgusted with some of things I've been reading by a few posters and the disregard for physical abuse towards women by men. If anyone ever had their mother, daughter, or sister beaten by a man would be pretty disgusted by this.Suprised this thread is even still open. Not a good look.

    Lol, ok. The Attempt means nothing. Hmm, I guess attempted murder should come with a lesser sentence. Unbelievable. He was being held back while attempting that kick as well. And that shove.....she only went across the room 10 feet. Playfull shove lol.
    I guess you are ignoring the fact that he has two other accusers as well. Dude is a immature thug.
    Whatever I really don't care whether he plays again ever again or not, I just have doubts be will but some teams like the Bengals have no morals.

    If you are referring to the shove where she fell down after flying across the room that was not Hunt , another person was pushed into her. Get your facts straight. I never said anything about the indecent was playful.

    It wasn't? Hunt shoved his friend, how do you think the other person was pushed into her?
    As friends try to hold him back, the 2017 Pro Bowler -- who led the league in rushing yards -- explodes and knocks one of his friends into the woman ... who both go flying into a wall.
    Both Kareem's male friend and the woman appear dazed -- but Kareem makes his way over to the female and kicks her while she's crouching on the ground ... knocking her over.
    Bottom line, professional athletes and everyone else need to walk way from any type of situation that could turn into this.

    I think your facts are the ones that are flawed. Yes, another person was pushed into her....BY Hunt! He was the instagator here and it is his fault, his actions, and has admitted to it. Why you can't is very puzzling. Maybe in KC fans are trying to justify this as his friends fault, I don't know. Non KC fans see a thug.
    My "playfull" shove remark was sarcasm.

    Not to mention the tough guy lied about it until he got caught, than cried like a baby in front of the coaches when he was getting cut. Everyone is so sorry when they get caught. Obviously, this guy has no conscious since he I dunno had since last February to come forward. Good riddance

    Kap has been handed an effective ban for his free speech. a lot of people over here think he should be lauded and supported by not only fans but also the NFLPA and NFL.

    And a lot of people over here think he should not. Anyway, free speech is not an issue in this instance, as this has nothing to do with the government banning his protest, and no one has said he cannot protest on his own time. Private businesses have every right restrict the political speech of their employees while "on company time" however, especially (as in the case) when that political speech while have a significant impact on said company's profit margin.
    For example of the other side, see all the recent instances of Twitter, Facebook, and Google banning or restricting the political speech of people with whom their CEOs disagree.
    Ueauvan
    Please dont jump on me but is this not like Flag burning during Vietnam?

    Yes. In the sense that is considered legal speech, but (by a majority of Americans) also highly anti-American and unpatriotic, is done in support of a cause with which at least half the country disagrees, and is sufficient ground for any private enterprise, especially one that basically makes its money off of positive publicity and public viewership, to fire those who in engage it it.

    I always had doubts about him as my team's qb, i have never questioned his integrity.

    Many do, seeing as how he did not start the protests until it looked like he was going to lose his starting QB job. But even if we did all agree he was sincere, it would just mean a majority thought he was sincerely wrong. Sincerity and correctness are not synonyms.

    He started protesting when he was healthy enough to play and was suited up. He missed the first 4 or 5ngames due to a shoulder injury and started the rest of the season so it had nothing to do with him looking like he was going to lose his QB job. It was HE who terminated the remainder of his contract because he had an out clause that he utilized.

    Although it was definitely bad I don’t think it was vicious nor nearly as bad as the ray rice video. He was clearly provoked and not having charges pressed pretty much shows it. Not a chiefs fan nor do I support violence against either sex but the worst thing here imo is the fact he lied to league and team officials. It makes him guilty without him being proven guilty.
