Cleveland Browns announce they've signed Kareem Hunt

Hunt has not been criminally charged but is on the commissioner's exempt list, making the OH native ineligible to play or practice.

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. "My faith tells me that".

On Monday, the Browns announced they had signed Hunt, reportedly to a one-year contract.

"I think every time you go through these very hard situations and these types of actions, you have to study everything from the person and then find out are they willing to be better people moving forward", Dorsey said.

That is an optimistic outlook from the Browns front office. It is an egregious act. "I think he's man enough to do that". "We all understand that".

"My relationship and interaction with Kareem since 2016 in college was an important part of this decision making process but we then did extensive due diligence with many individuals, including clinical professionals, to have a better understanding of the person he is today and whether it was prudent to sign him", Dorsey said in a statement.

Hunt is not expected to play for the Browns in September and maybe not in October. But the Bears can go cheaper with a draft pick and find a running back with skills to be a better fit in the offense. That he becomes the "better person" Dorsey said several times that he believes Hunt can become. Bright new stars like Patrick Mahomes!

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.

Hunt released a statement saying he regretted his actions and vowed to change.

He did not downplay what was viewed by the world or the seriousness of Hunt's actions - provoked or not, but he is hopeful that the Browns will be able to provide Hunt with an environment that will enable him to put it behind him and never repeat it again.

"I heard speculation it might be the whole season", Balzer said.

Hunt has been given a $1million deal by the Browns, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That is not the man I was raised to be, and I've learned a great deal from that experience and certainly should have been more truthful about it after the fact.

Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated wrote a story with the headline, "Kareem Hunt could have earned his way back into the National Football League - but not this quickly". We hope Hunt is committed to being a better person, that he realizes he absolutely can't strike a woman, that he will emerge from a bad 2018 as a different man. "I'm a work in progress as a person, but I'm committed to taking advantage of the support systems that I have in place to become the best and healthier version of myself".

"We evaluate every player on the field and off the field and in this case, we talked about internally", Quinn said in audio of the event provided by the Lions. "That's my word and I want good players and I want good people in this organization". Essentially, by signing him now, the Browns will own Hunt's rights for two seasons.
