Hunt: No problem with Sherman

Cletidus Hunt spent Wednesday afternoon riding a bike. Nothing newsworthy there. His patched-up relationship with Mike Sherman is the real news.<p>

Hunt met with reporters Wednesday, publicly smoothing over any supposed problems between the out-of-shape defensive lineman and the perterbed coach.

To review: Hunt showed up at training camp out of shape, and reportedly was unable to finish the precamp physical testing. On Monday afternoon, Hunt mistakenly came to practice dressed in shorts and without his pads. That led to a shouting match between Sherman and Hunt, with Hunt — fully dressed, now — eventually being banished to an exercise bike.

Continuing the "we are family" line — Sherman praised Hunt during the postdraft minicamp by saying his "boy" had grown up — Hunt called the whole ordeal a "family misunderstanding" and admitted getting "pretty hostile" about being castigated in front of teammates and some reporters.

Hunt says his relationship with Sherman is fine, and dismissed rumors of his contemplating walking out of camp after Monday's verbal altercation.

"It was just a misunderstanding. Then, after that, a few rumors go around and so forth," Hunt said. "It was a family-oriented thing, things families go through. We work them out."

As for his Lance Armstrong training regimine, Hunt says the afternoon pedaling will continue through the Aug. 27 preseason game at Jacksonville.
