KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- The Cleveland Browns have signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, the team confirms.
Hunt was released by the Chiefs after video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman.
Former Chiefs general manager John Dorsey now is the GM of the Browns and said his past relationship mattered in the signing.
“My relationship and interaction with Kareem since 2016 in college was an important part of this decision making process but we then did extensive due diligence with many individuals, including clinical professionals, to have a better understanding of the person he is today and whether it was prudent to sign him," Dorsey said. "There were two important factors: one is that Kareem took full responsibility for his egregious actions and showed true remorse and secondly, just as importantly, he is undergoing and is committed to necessary professional treatment and a plan that has been clearly laid out.”
This is a developing story.
