Browns Sign Running Back Facing Domestic Violence Allegations

"Now, many of us are reluctant to even make fun of the Browns for doing something stupid and very bad because the Browns are a feel-good story".

Hunt appeared in 11 games in 2018 and had 824 rushing yards, 378 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns before his release in late November.

The Chiefs insisted Hunt was not truthful with them about what happened, which in turn led them to cut the player and Hunt later agreed about being deceitful. He was also a force in the passing game as he caught 79 passes for 833 yards and ten touchdowns as well. In addition, Cleveland is far from a running back needy team heading into 2019 as they now boast a backfield featuring promising young 2018 rookie Nick Chubb and pass catching dynamo Duke Johnson. They will likely be back splitting time this season. While he is on that list, Hunt can not practice or be with the team. That a 23-year-old has learned from-and will not be defined by-the incidents of violence he committed. But, this is where the challenge will always be in asking sports leagues to become moral arbiters, determining how long an absence is acceptable for a player who has committed a violent act.

Mike Vick revitalized his career with the Philadelphia Eagles after missing two full years. Don't get it twisted though, Johnson doesn't just play out of the backfield as a receiver, he was featured all over the field for the Browns as a receiver due to precise route running and sure hands. They already have a risky one-two punch in Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson. In June, the NFL recommended a suspension, but the NFL Players Association worked with the league to negotiate a three-game ban. Johnson is the change-of-pace back and the better pass-catching option. He has 3,456 yards from scrimmage in four seasons including a 2017 season where he had 74 catches out of the backfield.

"First off, I would like to once again apologize for my actions last February".

It's a shocker because the Browns, viewed as a team viewed as "on the rise", don't need any baggage dragging them down into the dirt.

Seriously? Bill Cosby is having 'amazing' experience in prison
As reported, his wife of more than 50 years, Camille, hasn't visited him and doesn't plan to . " He's mentally strong . Wyatt did not explain how Cosby did that however, since he was removed from the general population at that time.

Hunt wasn't arrested and did not face charges in the incident, but was released from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Keyword on yet, as Dorsey is presumably waiting for Hunt's fate to be dealt with by the National Football League before trading Johnson.

The Cleveland Browns yesterday signed running back Kareem Hunt, almost three months after he was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs when a video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel last February.

Later, standing in the lobby of the team's headquarters in front of a generic backdrop and not one that would typically feature one of the team's corporate sponsors, Dorsey was asked what his message would be to any female employees of the Browns.

There are teams that make the running back by committee work. News of his signing was just announced and we are all reacting to it.

Hunt has personal ties to Cleveland, having grown up near the city before starring in college for Toledo. Chubb falls to RB18, though it's early. It hurts Chubb and Johnson as well.
