National Football League suspends Kareem Hunt eight games

Clarity with Kareem Hunt suspension is another win for Browns

Hunt was placed on the Commissioner Exempt list on November 30 and was released by his former club, the Kansas City Chiefs, that same day. The league also cited an incident in which Hunt was involved last summer at a resort in OH as factoring into the discipline decision. Hunt was having an exceptional season before footage of him assaulting a woman surfaced which resulted in him being cut from the team. The Browns expected that Hunt would receive between an eight and 10-game suspension when they signed him, according to a report from NFL Media.

Hunt, now with the Cleveland Browns, has been fully cooperative in the investigation and accepts the NFL's ruling without appeal.

"I want to again apologize for my actions past year", Hunt said in a statement released by the Browns. The eight-game suspension will take effect as of the final roster reduction on August 31.

The league said Hunt has told them he's committed to "available resources" and he has pledged to live up his obligations. "I know that my behavior hurt a lot of people, and I again apologize to them", he said in a statement released by the team.

The NFL conducted its own investigation into the incident and has now slapped Hunt with an eight-game ban for the start of next season. I respect the league's decision on discipline, and I appreciate the time I spent with Commissioner (Roger) Goodell last week. He will be eligible to return for the ninth game of the regular season (the full National Football League schedule will be released in April). I'm extremely grateful that John Dorsey, Dee and Jimmy Haslam and the Cleveland Browns organization are granting me the opportunity to earn their trust and represent their organization in the best way possible on and off the field. However, with the serious nature of Hunt's incident that was caught on video, along with the other allegations, the National Football League was smart to go above the standard discipline. I also appreciate all of the support I received from my union through this process.

Hunt's suspension stems from a pair of incidents that took place while when he was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. As a result of the video, the National Football League launched an investigation into his misconduct. Hunt will be eligible to play in the game if it occurs during the latter half of the Brown's schedule. He'll then be a restricted free agent next offseason for the Browns.
