Kareem Hunt and the issue of trust

Duke Johnson should be trade target for Eagles

Ever since he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs midway through last season, Eagles fans have debated and wondered if their team would take a chance on signing running back Kareem Hunt. "Why not make suggestions to him to go out in the community, get involved within your community, because who is the community of Cleveland but the people that live there, so why not interact with the people of Cleveland and begin to show them that, you know what, Kareem Hunt's not as bad as everybody makes him out to be".

"We fully understand and respect the complexity of questions and issues in signing a player with Kareem's history and do not condone his actions", Dorsey said in a statement on Monday, as per NBC. First of all, many thought NFL teams would wait to hear the official punishment from the NFL on Hunt violating the league's personal conduct policy before signing him.

No matter what the opinion from the common public (and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell) with Hunt off the field is, denying that Hunt is unequivocally talented, and will be a difference maker for the Browns is wrong. He had 824 rushing yards and seven touchdowns with seven receiving touchdowns in 11 games last season before TMZ released video of his violence against the woman. "You have to go back and research and see moving forward what's best for the organization". I don't think it makes [Johnson] expendable yet.

"I felt there was remorse, and I'll stand by it", Dorsey said. The league is still investigating the incident. That is not the man I was raised to be, and I've learned a great deal from that experience and certainly should have been more truthful about it after the fact.


"Here at the Browns, there is a detailed plan with expectations laid out that he understands and must follow, because any similar incident will not be tolerated".

The Browns, as they should have, didn't shy away from Hunt's disturbing 2018, and Dorsey, in addition to being blunt in a statement released after the signing, addressed the media at the team's headquarters in Berea. "I'm a work in progress as a person, but I'm committed to taking advantage of the support systems that I have in place to become the best and healthier version of myself".

Dorsey expects backlash for the decision to sign Hunt, but feels he knows Hunt well enough to believe he's changed.

"I believe he will be a better man today than he was yesterday", Dorsey said. "This will be a day-to-day thing in terms of earning trust". For now, he'll be on the commissioner's exempt list, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB. Depending on the ongoing investigation by the National Football League, the embattled running back could face a 10 or 12 game suspension if not the majority of the 2019 National Football League season. Don't get it twisted though, Johnson doesn't just play out of the backfield as a receiver, he was featured all over the field for the Browns as a receiver due to precise route running and sure hands. The Browns have Nick Chubb, who ran for 996 yards as a rookie, and Duke Johnson Jr., who signed a three-year contract extension in June.
