Browns GM John Dorsey says nothing is guaranteed for Kareem Hunt
In a controversial decision, the Cleveland Browns elected to sign former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt on Monday afternoon. However, both the Browns and general manager John Dorsey were forced to release statement after statement on Monday in order to defend the decision.
Perhaps most notably, Dorsey noted that nothing with be guaranteed for the troubled running back in Cleveland.
“By no means is this a guarantee of anything,” Dorsey said, via 247 Sports. “As we all know, trust has to be earned. It has to be earned with the Cleveland Browns organization and the community of Cleveland moving forward, so this will be a day-to-day thing with earning trust.”
Hunt was released by the Chiefs midway through this past season after a video surfaced of a domestic violence incident involving the former Toledo standout.
“We’ve done our extensive research and at the end of the day, in terms of doing our research, we came away that the act was egregious,” Dorsey said in his original statement on Monday. “He’s extremely remorseful for that. Moving forward, I’ve always believed that it is important . . . if a person wants to better themselves moving forward and be a better person, I’m willing to give them a chance in terms of doing that. All the deep research I’ve done, I truly believe he will be a better man today than he was yesterday.”
As a whole, the Browns are certainly on an upswing with the AFC North franchise beginning to turn things around in 2018-19.
