Browns sign suspended RB Hunt

BEREA, Ohio - The Cleveland Browns believe there's remorse in Kareem Hunt's heart.

Following their own investigation, the Browns signed Hunt to a one-year contract Monday, giving the former star Chiefs running back a second chance after a video showed him pushing and kicking a woman.

"I think we're all appalled by it," general manager John Dorsey said at the team's headquarters, hours after the Browns announced the controversial signing. "It is an egregious act. We all understand that. But after doing our research, extensive research, analyzing the situation, we came to the conclusion that I am willing to help a man from a second chance moving forward to be a better person, and that's all you can ask for in society, and that's all I'm trying to do."
