Patrick Mahomes and Kareem Hunt were part of the same draft class with the Kansas City Chiefs, but the quarterback agreed with the franchise's decision to release Hunt.
Kansas City released the running back after video surfaced of an altercation with a female.
"I saw the stuff that happened," Mahomes said. "We don't do those things."
The video surfaced last week and the Chiefs acted quickly, cutting Hunt lose on Friday. Hunt was the NFL's leading rusher as a rookie last season.
