Cleveland Browns sign former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt

Hunt, a 2017 Pro Bowler as a rookie, was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in November after video surfaced of an incident in which he is seen shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel earlier in 2018.

However, Hunt is not entirely off the hook. He also was accused of punching a man at a resort in OH last June, and of being part of a group that punched a man at a nightclub in Kansas City last January.

The difference between Kaepernick's apparent transgression and what Hunt did was cited on the Internet by more than a few observers Monday, including Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, who tweeted, "Kareem Hunt is ON VIDEO kicking a woman while she's on the ground and still got signed". 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. The man, who wasn't seriously injured, didn't press charges.

Browns General Manager John Dorsey, who oversaw the drafting of Hunt out of Toledo while he was GM in Kansas City, said he believes the National Football League investigation into the incident will be over soon.

The NFL is investigating a total of three incidents involving Hunt, including the one last February, but Dorsey did not see their findings as problematic. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery of his then-pregnant girlfriend in 2015. Hill admitted to punching and choking his pregnant girlfriend. While reporters spoke to Dorsey, the bell that rings to signify ticket sales rang multiple times Monday afternoon.

Many expressed outrage, others looked at the signing of an electric running back with orange-and-brown-tinted glasses, and others weren't quite sure what to think.

However, some of the fans were open to give Hunt a second chance, while also noting that the Browns have gotten a solid player to join a powerful line up of their running backs. "He is extremely remorseful for that".

GM and Amazon Reportedly to Invest in Rivian
Negotiations are reportedly still taking place, but the sources claim we may hear an official announcement some time this month. Big names such as GM and Amazon are already poised to dump boatloads of cash into the development of future electric platforms.

"Any similar incident will not be tolerated", the GM said. After the deal became official, Hunt issued a statement, Reuters reported. If he doesn't get the accrued season, he would be an exclusive rights free agent, which ties him to the Browns in 2020. He was in his second season with the Chiefs and one of their best players after leading the league in rushing as a rookie.

It's obviously not almost that simple, and this is a signing that is anything but low risk. "Actions earn trust. The actions have begun to be developed, and he has shown and led us to believe that he is willing to move forward here on this".

There was no rush to sign Hunt, though had the Browns waited, other teams might have taken him off the market.

They drafted Nick Chubb at No. 35 overall last spring. Johnson signed a 3-year, $15.6 million contract extension last summer.

Yes. "That means you'll have good competitive depth in training camp", Dorsey said. Dorsey "is really going for it". 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.

At this point though, this signing will put all Hunt to Philly rumors to rest.
