The Cleveland Browns believe in second chances. After being suspended and released by the Kansas City Chiefs, running back Kareem Hunt gets another chance with the Browns.
The Kansas City Chiefs released Hunt in December after a video surfaced that showed him shoving and kicking a woman last February at his residence in Cleveland. Here is the video of what happened that night:

He will not be getting the minimum, but slightly more according to Ian Rapoport.
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.

John Dorsey, the Browns GM, says that Hunt is remorseful and ready to become a better man.
