Perhaps that's partly because, in this short time frame, Dorsey could not possibly have enough evidence of how Hunt has learned from his actions and worked to change his behavior, certainly not to the extent to which the general manager could have conviction that this young player will not be violent again. Kansas City released him the same day TMZ published the recording.

Just because Hunt is off the market doesn't mean the Bears will not actively seek more firepower for their backfield after Jordan Howard plodded to 935 yards last season, averaging 3.7 yards per carry. If Hunt is not a fit, they do not lose much.

In a statement released by the Cleveland Browns, GM John Dorsey, who drafted Hunt in Kansas City, explained his decision to sign the Pro Bowl running back.

Actions, general manager John Dorsey said, will speak louder than Hunt's words have thus far in his return to the NFL. "And secondly, just as importantly, he is undergoing and is committed to necessary professional treatment and a plan that has been clearly laid out".

In addition, Dorsey did not consult with any current Browns players about the potential fit or attitude in the locker room.

She was visibly distressed when the male figure dragged her out of the workshop and into the White Nissan Altima. She is described as being in her mid-20s to early 30s, and is between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall.

No matter what people are saying on Twitter, the National Football League will have to finish their investigation into Hunt's past actions and make a ruling on any potential punishment before he will be allowed to play in that Browns' uniform.

Hunt was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list and was dropped by the Kansas City Chiefs. As a rookie in 2017, he ran for a league-high 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns, and caught 53 passes for 455 yards and three more scores. His full-season totals (996 rushing yards, 149 receiving, PPR RB17) were impressive, all the more because Chubb spent the first six weeks of the season behind ex-Brown Carlos Hyde on the depth chart - he didn't top 11 snaps in a game and only had 33 total into Week 7. In an interview with ESPN in December, Hunt took responsibility for his role in the fight and apologized.

"We have talked to numerous people in doing our extensive research with this, and he's truly remorseful for what he has done", Dorsey responded. Matt knows more about him as a person.

We didn't even mention Dontrell Hilliard, who is also still on the roster and is now the fourth back. It was only a matter of time before he found the next team that would be willing to give him a second chance.

In 2015, the Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy was suspended 10 games due to a domestic violence case. He could have been a difference-maker for the Bears, maybe as soon as the second half of the 2019 season.
