Browns will have a zero-tolerance policy with Hunt — GM

Kareem Hunt

Hunt was promptly released and went unclaimed on the NFL's waiver wire system.

Hunt has been involved in counseling since December for the incident in which he shoved a woman and kicked her. If Hunt returns to playing like he did in Kansas City, then he will be described as "troubled" and announcers will vaguely refer to "off-the-field behavior" during broadcasts.

"What I do believe is people do make mistakes and that if they vetted him and believe he is remorseful he should be given a second chance", said Reece.

The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they have signed the former Kansas City Chiefs running back, who was released on November 30 after video surfaced of him pushing and kicking a woman during an altercation. Hunt had previously claimed he was victim and police on the scene at the time back in February failed to file charges on anyone. "Here's a kid that I spent a year coaching on offense".

The Browns feel they're doing the right thing.

Browns general manager John Dorsey originally drafted Hunt out of the University of Toledo when he was the Chiefs GM during the 2017 NFL Draft. While many believed that it would be the Philadelphia Eagles to do so, it turns out that Hunt will get his second chance with the Cleveland Browns for the 2019 National Football League season. I'll stand by that. I see a lot of men of character who commit egregious acts. "Again, I believe in second chances".

That team is the Cleveland Browns, who now have quite the crowded backfield. "We all understand that", Dorsey said. While the Eagles are going to be in the market for a new running back, it seemed doubtful that they would go after Hunt, given that they have avoided players with off-field controversies on several occasions at this point, excluding Michael Bennett. Are the Browns equipped to handle Hunt? Matt knows more about him as a person. Nagy was the Chiefs' offensive coordinator in 2017 when Hunt became the NFL's leading rusher as a rookie. "This happens to be one of those situations where at the end day, the organization was comfortable moving forward with signing this player". Hunt himself backed up the team's statement saying that he brought this on himself.

Hunt was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list immediately a year ago and has not been removed. 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.

"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. I also understand the expectations that the Browns have clearly laid out and that I have to earn my way back to the NFL. The Browns released Monday in which he said his actions were "wrong and inexcusable", and declaring, "I am committed to following the necessary steps to learn and to be a better and healthier person from this situation".

Kareem Hunt is getting another chance.
