The NFL suspended Browns running back Kareem Hunt for eight games after a video showed him kicking a woman and his involvement in a fight at a resort.
Previously, Kareem Hunt was seen on camera kicking and shoving a woman on camera at a Cleveland hotel in 2018. The Chiefs released Hunt in the middle of the 2018 regular season shortly after the video emerged.
The team knew Hunt was facing significant discipline when it signed him to a one-year, $1.1 million deal, which carried a base salary of $645,000, a roster bonus of $275,000 and a workout bonus of $55,000.
Hunt released a statement through the Browns' organization accepting his suspension and expressing remorse for his alleged actions.
The NFL has been criticized in the past for inconsistency with suspension length for various offenses. Hunt's suspension will take effect at the start of the season and he will be eligible to return for the Browns in Week 9.
"We had done our research", Dorsey said at the NFL Scouting Combine. " They continued on saying "He has committed to take advantage of available resources to help him grow personally and as a member of the Cleveland community, and to live up to his obligations as an National Football League player".
Hunt has apologised again and said he "respects the league's decision on discipline".
Hunt's suspension comes during a busy week for the Browns, who acquired star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday in a trade with the New York Giants.
"I know that my behaviour hurt a lot of people, and I again apologise to them", he said. 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.
Hunt led the National Football League in rushing as a rookie in 2017 with 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns in helping Kansas City qualify for the playoffs.
Hunt was not charged in any of the incidents. I also appreciate all of the support I received from my union through this process. "He is extremely remorseful for his actions". "He understands and takes full responsibility for the egregious act he committed". He also had 53 receptions for 455 yards and three touchdowns. Last year, his second in the league, he recorded 824 yards rushing and seven touchdowns in 11 games.
