The biggest story in the NFL over the weekend was the Chiefs releasing Kareem Hunt following a video coming out Friday showing him attacking a woman outside his Cleveland home last February.

Appearing on Mut & Callahan Monday morning with Greg Dickerson, Tom Brady was asked about the sitiuation and Brady noted how Bill Belichick does a good job of reminding the team actions come with consequences.

“We talk a lot about those types of things, Coach Belichick does a great job talking to us about things that happen and the consequences that come with actions," he said. "That has been something we’ve been talking about for awhile now. I think there’s such zero tolerance, not only in football but society for things like that. You hate to see it. It can derail some really encouraging, positive things that are happening in people’s lives. Just a bad decision, and moreso now than at any other time. Poor decisions are — everyone is going to make poor decisions in life, it’s just you hope they are not permanently poor. It’s just a very unfortunate situation.”

Brady said Belichick could use the Hunt situation as another example of what not to do.

“Absolutely. And again, we talk about a lot of things over the course of the year," he said. "There are a lot of societal issues that have again been addressed with our team and the league. I don’t think we’re necessarily immune to some of those things, but the league tries to create a lot of awareness and it’s just personal choices. Obviously, we’re all accountable to our choices and it’s just a very unfortunate situation.”

As it relates to football, the loss of Hunt will certainly impact the Chiefs who are a game ahead of the Patriots for the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
