Kareem Hunt gets another National Football League chance with Browns

Browns sign RB Kareem Hunt

The Cleveland Browns have today announced the signing of former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt.

According to NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the deal is official. The biggest assumption was that general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy were going to roll the dice and sign running back Kareem Hunt.

Running back Kareem Hunt (27) was released in late November after video from an incident last February showed him kicking and pushing a woman.

The Bills still have LeSean McCoy under contract for one more season, but following the worst year of his career where he averaged 3.2 yards per career, it would be no surprise if the team was exploring other alternatives at the running back position. One problem the Browns had past year was that Chubb and Duke were different styles of running backs, so it was hard to be able to plug one in to do what the other did and have the job be done effectively.

Since that time, Hunt was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List and was forced to sit out the final five regular season games in addition to two playoff contests for the Chiefs-a team that stopped just short of their first Super Bowl appearance in decades.

"I know this, if you talked to anybody who's been in the locker room with Kareem Hunt, they'll tell he was a really good teammate", Dorsey said. I am committed to following the necessary steps to learn and to be a better and healthier person from this situation.

However, some of the fans were open to give Hunt a second chance, while also noting that the Browns have gotten a solid player to join a powerful line up of their running backs.

Dorsey clearly wanted to add another body to that room, so why Hunt and not another draft pick or free agent?

"There were two important factors: one is that Kareem took full responsibility for his egregious actions and showed true remorse and secondly, just as importantly, he is undergoing and is committed to necessary treatment and a plan that has been clearly laid out", Dorsey said in the statement. His best season in the National Football League came in 2017, when he totaled 1,041 yards on 156 touches and seven touchdowns.

While there might be privacy concerns, it's interesting Dorsey and his investigative team have not confirmed the victim's statement personally or spoken with her.

The Browns will likely receive backlash for their decision to sign Hunt. The second-round rookie responded with an outstanding second half to the year, eventually finishing with 996 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns on the year. From this, we learned that he was untruthful about his actions and did not seek help to correct his violent behaviors until after the video was released and he lost his job in the NFL.
