Dorsey: Duke Johnson not 'expendable yet' after the Browns sign Kareem Hunt

021119_AroundAFCN

One of the driving forces behind this recent signing is John Dorsey, who is the general manager of the Browns.

The 23-year-old running back, who led the National Football League in rushing yards as a rookie, was added to the Browns' roster before the National Football League completed its investigation of the incident, which took place earlier last year in a Cleveland hotel.

According to reports, Hunt's punishment is expected to be known in a few weeks, and could very likely be a six-week ban.

He will now have a chance to revive his career in Cleveland. Moving forward, I've always believed that it is important. if a person wants to better themselves moving forward and be a better person, I'm willing to give them a chance in terms of doing 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", Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. The future of the team rests in the shoulders of his performance moving forward. Apparently, Hunt has landed a short-term, one year deal with the Browns. However, they also believe it was a random act by a good-hearted young man who feels remorseful and deserves another chance.

"What I did was wrong and inexcusable", he said, as per a Browns' official statement. "Does he truly understand the actions that have transpired?"

Although Dorsey feels comfortable giving Hunt a second chance in the league, Detroit Lions GM Bob Quinn was clearly against the idea of adding the troublesome running back. The 2019 regular season starts on September 5. He is the same person who drafted Hunt out of Toledo and remained in contact with the third round pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Through 11 games, Hunt ran for 824 yards with seven total touchdowns in his second season in the league.

Dorsey was asked about Johnson's role in his Monday presser.

"I think we're all appalled by it". "He's got to earn the trust of everybody in this organization and this community". There are also multiple incidents that emerged from his past that are now under evaluation by the league.

"I would like to once again apologize for my actions past year", he said.

"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 all understand that", Dorsey said. "Why not make suggestions to him to go out in the community, get involved within your community, because who is the community of Cleveland but the people that live there, so why not interact with the people of Cleveland and begin to show them that, you know what, Kareem Hunt's not as bad as everybody makes him out to be". It was a checkup on Hunt's personal life, not a recruiting pitch, and Nagy said he had no issues with Hunt when he coached him in Kansas City, calling him a "really, really good kid".
