Kareem Hunt gets another National Football League chance with Browns

Kareem Hunt

Hunt still could be suspended by the league under its personal conduct policy for the incident and two others that surfaced after he was released by the Chiefs.

When video of the February incident became public late last November, published by TMZ, the Chiefs released Hunt. The signing was subsequently criticized by both women's rights activists and supporters of Colin Kaepernick. They spoke about it so openly the wheels were clearly turning in the building with the NFL's leading rusher from 2017 on the street and the Bears driven to shake up the depth chart at the position. He was in his second season with Kansas City and was one of the team's most productive players as it won the AFC West the last two years.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt (27) celebrates scoring in the second quarter against the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. "Thank God he didn't take a knee protesting social justice". Projections on a suspension for Hunt range anywhere between four games and the full 2019 season, but it's anyone's guess as to what it will actually be.

"I'm a work in progress as a person, but I'm committed to taking advantage of the support systems that I have in place to become the best and healthier version of myself", Hunt's statement read. The timing and landing spot of the signing are more than a bit curious.

"Women don't matter to the NFL, which is rather surprising because they're a big part of the viewer audience", said the president of the National Organization For Women.
Hunt signed a one-year contract with the Browns and will now be a restricted free agent in the 2020 off-season. For all the people he talked to about the February incident, he did not talk to the victim, or even try to, saying: "That's probably part of her privacy stuff".

"It would be nice", Armour wrote, "if we lived in a world where there was zero tolerance for physical and sexual abuse, where the health and safety of women mattered as much as the power and privilege of men".

The Cleveland Browns got better Monday, but they also got a lot more controversial.

Will Hunt seize his second National Football League opportunity as the Toledo product returns closer to home with the Browns?

The fit, beyond the obvious relationship between Dorsey and Hunt that the Browns' general manager said in a statement Monday was key in the team's decision, is fascinating.

The Cleveland Browns found it offensive as well. "Maybe that's the point". From this, we learned that he was untruthful about his actions and did not seek help to correct his violent behaviors until after the video was released and he lost his job in the NFL.

To Shawn Windsor of the Detroit Free Press, "it's hard to get past the message this signing sent: that violence against women is forgivable, while kneeling during the national anthem is not". Hunt's presence would have forced the Bears to answer tough questions from fans and sponsors, but that's a non-issue now. That says plenty, obviously.

Throughout it, he earnestly insisted that the former Chiefs running back deserved a second chance, and used his own religious faith as a shield in his defense. "And likely never will".

"We fully understand that Kareem is subject to discipline by the NFL", Dorsey said.
