Per the report:
The NFL never requested an interview with Hunt after the incident that occurred outside his Cleveland residence, sources said. The NFL did reach out to the woman and her friend on multiple occasions, but they did not respond, officials said.
The league said it spoke to as many witnesses who were there as possible and that they said Hunt was not involved, which the video that TMZ released Friday clearly contradicts.
The Chiefs released Hunt on Friday after learning about the video released by TMZ Sports. Police responded to the scene, but charges were not filed and no arrests were made “because officers say they were unable to determine if a crime had been committed, according to TMZ.
