Browns ‘aware’ of recent Kareem Hunt incident
Kareem Hunt has made headlines once again but not for the right reasons. The Cleveland Browns’ new running back was found speaking to police officers after an incident at a Cleveland Bar.
According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, the Browns are “aware” of the situation involving Hunt and have spoken to him. Cleveland will also have no further comments pertaining to the incident.
The incident reportedly happened at the Barley House in downtown Cleveland. Afterward, the owner of the bar said that he saw Hunt get into a minor altercation with a friend.
Kareem Hunt ran into trouble when there was a video released of the running back kicking and shoving a girl in a hotel while he was with the Kansas City Chiefs. The following incident led the Chiefs organization to cut the troubled running back.
Then, earlier this offseason, Browns general manager John Dorsey decided to sign Hunt in free agency. This was after knowing the NFL handed him an eight-game suspension to begin the 2019 season. This isn’t great news for the Browns. Hunt was already walking on thin ice.
During this offseason, Hunt has apparently been undergoing counseling for alcohol and anger issues. There’s no doubt that Hunt has the talent to have a long NFL career, but his off-field behavior may cause his career to be shortened.
Hopefully, Hunt will be able to manage to get his personal life together and makes people share a new opinion of his image. The NFL is looking into Hunt’s most recent situation to gather all of the information it feels it needs.
