Kareem Hunt was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in November after a video showed him “kicking” a women. Although, the “kick” was very soft; it was enough for Hunt to lose him job. After a few months have passed, what team would pick up Hunt?
As a Detroit Lions fan, I’ll be honest, I was hoping that I was going to wake up today and see that Detroit brought Hunt in. Listen, I get it. He had an altercation with a women, please look into the entire story. This guy isn’t no Ray Rice. But eitherway, that isn’t what happened. Hunt, was given another chance by the same exact guy who drafted in to the Kansas City Chiefs.
John Dorsey, who was the Chiefs’ GM when the team drafted Hunt, released a statement today as Cleveland announced the signing. Dorsey said the decision hinged on two factors: that Hunt took full responsibility for what he did, and that he would commit to treatment and “a plan that has been clearly laid out.” The former is not true—part of the reason why the Chiefs cut Hunt, according to The Athletic, is because he told the team he never left his hotel room on the night of the altercation.

The #Browns signed RB Kareem Hunt to a 1-year deal that could be worth more than $1M not factoring in the suspension, source said. More than the minimum. After this year, he’ll be an RFA.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 11, 2019
Now that Kareem Hunt has signed with the Browns, he will be placed on the commissioner's exempt list until the league makes a final decision on discipline. The expectation, as the Browns' announcement indicates, is that he will be suspended for a portion of this season.— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) February 11, 2019
