On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day, Al addresses whether or not the employment of Kareem Hunt and unemployment of Colin Kaepernick are comparable.

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day, Al explains why NFL running back Kareem Hunt was able to land a job with the Cleveland Browns, despite the fact that just two months ago he was caught on camera assaulting a young woman.

Al explains.
