The Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns allegedly spoke about Pro Bowl running back Kareem Hunt as the trade deadline approached.
Hunt, who is 27 years old, is in the last year of his current deal. His desire for a new contract has been well reported.
It makes likely that the Browns would consider Hunt's offers given how bad things are right now for the team.
The Rams and Browns have recently held trade talks, according to Brad Stainbrook of TheOBR.com, even though a deal isn't currently imminent.
According to Stainbrook, the Rams and Browns have not yet "escalated to a significant level" in their trade negotiations.
Recently, the Rams were unable to sign Christian McCaffrey. Hunt would be a playmaker who would make up for that.
