Is Kareem Hunt's eight-game suspension from the National Football League appropriate?

They will only get Hunt for half of those games, as the National Football League announced on Friday that Hunt would receive an eight-game suspension for his off-field actions, including a violent incident at a hotel that was captured on video and led to his release from the Chiefs in the middle of the season past year.

"PFS Agency stands behind our client, Kareem Hunt, in his decision to accept the suspension handed down by the National Football League today", Saffron said.

Hunt was involved in multiple off-field incidents since the beginning of 2018, the most notable being at a Cleveland hotel when video caught him shoving and kicking a woman. Within just a few hours, Hunt was released by the Chiefs.

"I want to again apologize for my actions a year ago", Hunt said in a statement released by the Browns. Toni Van Pelt, the president of the National Organization for Women, argued that the Browns's decision to sign Hunt was proof that the NFL continued to disregard women.

In 11 games with the Chiefs last season, Hunt rushed for 824 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 378 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns. "I know that my behavior hurt a lot of people, and I again apologize to them", Hunt said in a statement. Upon return he'll have a chance to earn $200,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

"I'm grateful for my time with the Browns over the last month and thankful to all the people in the organization that have welcomed me".

The NFL had waited to finish its investigation of that incident - along with a separate reported situation involving Hunt in which he allegedly punched a man in the face at an OH resort last June - before assessing his punishment. I also appreciate all of the support I received from my union through this process.

"We had done our research", Dorsey said at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Hunt, who will be a restricted free agent at the end of next season, issued a statement in which he reiterated his apology.

Former Chiefs general manager John Dorsey, now the Browns' GM, was responsible for drafting Hunt in Kansas City and made the decision to bring him to Cleveland, despite the impending suspension. "We thought at the appropriate time with all the information we did have, how truly remorseful he was and. knowing when he comes here there are no guarantees, he's going to earn your respect with his actions". "He understands and takes full responsibility for the egregious act he committed".
