Browns Sign Kareem Hunt

Published

on

The Cleveland Browns have signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, the team officially announced on Monday.

According to NFL Network insider, Hunt inked a one-year, $1 million deal with Cleveland.

Hunt will not reunite with general manager John Dorsey, who drafted Hunt when they were both in Kansas City.

With the signing of Hunt, the running back will be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and a suspension is forthcoming, but it may take a while to learn of the extent, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.

“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.

“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 professional treatment and a plan that has been clearly laid out.”

Dorsey went on to continue to defend the team’s decision to sign Hunt.


“Given what we know about Kareem through our extensive research, we believe he deserves a second chance but certainly with the understanding that he has to go through critical and essential steps to become a performing member of this organization, aside from what the NFL determines from their ongoing investigation. … Here at the Browns, there is a detailed plan with expectations laid out that he understands and must follow, because any similar incident will not be tolerated. We will support Kareem through this process and utilize our resources, however permitted, to help him become successful on and off the field as long as he continues to show the commitment necessary to represent this organization.”
