Browns sign Kareem Hunt

Recommended Posts

Just now, ATOM said:

he is going to be a RFA at seasons end and if he play's well couldnt we just tag him and get something in return ?

I believe that is correct as well or at least I read that Browns control his rights after this season.

Could be just a one year rental or who knows could be longer term.  I've not seen what we are paying him at this point.

Very low risk possible high reward signing then.

Correct according to rappaport

"Per Rapoport, Hunt agreed to a one-year deal worth more than $1 million without factoring in the suspension. Hunt will be a restricted free agent at the end of the 2019 season."

so if suspended 8 games I would assume it's only 500,000. And as others have mentioned the big kicker no pun intended is we own his rights after this year. So we can either sign him and he gives us a HomeTown discount being from Cleveland or we tag him and trade him if he blows up. The part that worries me is where this incident happened in where several other incidents have happened is in Cleveland because he is from here. So he's around all of his old friends from high school and they don't make the greatest decisions apparently.

Why trade him? Is there some wrong with having good depth players?

Duke can't be happy with the snaps hes getting and now we bring in a Hunt to take away even more playing time. He is going to be nothing more then depth and special teams at this point. Granted hes making like 5 mil a year and hes not destroying his body.

At least we don't have any cheerleaders for him to beat up.

Agreed ..... you can be awarded with the biggest job in the land  no matter what history you have

Right....I mean, if you can be an embezzler, an enemy collaborator,  a pussy grabber and a porn star fucker while your wife is pregnant does not disqualify you from the top job...why should we care about who plays football?

Not a bad thought.  You know that SOMEONE was gonna tap him.

Very surprised about this move. Thought these would the last place he would end up. Hitting women is wrong  but didn't he kick this racist woman up in Cleveland somewhere, which makes it even weirder. While there will be so PR backlash from females I doubt it will much, I think many grossly over-estimate  how many women actually supported this train-wreck before this year . As I said before most of the base is older white guys due to 2 decades of losing.

He lost most of this past season.   Why the fuck would THAT not be considered his suspension?

Because the Commissioner is an asshole. Also I could be wrong here all of Josh's "leave of absences" or BS wellness checks never counted toward his suspension time.

Absurd.  The only possible difference that I could see is that if you are on the exempt list....you are not paid....but if you are suspended, you are.

No. I just want good wholesome clean guys on the Browns, not the biggest scumbags that Dorsey can find. 

Isn't that exactly what I said? You want a team of Holly Roller Choirboys....  That doesn't happen in the NFL...  And I pointed out there's guys in the HOF who have done far worse.

I think him and to a lesser extent Baker are scumbags no matter what. 

Now you're doubling down that people can't learn from past mistakes and change for the better- if you think once a scumbag, always a scumbag...  If the Browns didn't give Kareem a second chance, some other team certainly would have.

I divorce my personal feelings from employability concerning most jobs.  Never asked a waiter if he has had a DWI, never asked a Walmart Clerk if they have a past history of domestic violence and don’t care about NFL players history.  It’s up to the NFL to collectively bargain penalties for actions and employability and if a person is eligible to play, so be it.

You nailed it Bacon... If they're doing their job (in this case being a great football player) it's up to the employer in this case the Browns and NFL- to set the rules of employment. How many guys are still working at (pick a motor company) after they got accused of beating up on their wife\girlfriend? I'd bet plenty.

Others already have said, low risk, high potential reward. Hunt keeps his act together- the Browns are in line to cash in.  The first round tender for a RFA was $4.1 million last year. That's bargain basement compared to what LeVeon Bell thinks he's worth. So we'd get to keep him on the cheap for another year, or get a first round draft pick from another team. Brilliant move by Dorsey to collect a nice bargaining chip for a million bucks....

The only thing that I can think is that Eating Turds  is himself a former  criminal perhaps,  miscreant....at minimum an asshole who has done all kinds of dumb/bad things in his life and he has been harshly treated by the law...or society...or family, or someone.   And he is resentful that anyone else who has also strayed off the beaten path should be allowed to show redemption and remorse, and attempt to improve themselves.

I know, but it seem Godell just makes up rules and punishments on the fly.

I doubt that.  I assume that is all worked out under the CBA.   I also assume that an entirely new disciplinary procedure will be worked out in the next CBA.

Before the Ray Rice thing they had nothing in place, since that whole media shit-storm they have implemented a framework on how to deal with Domestic Violence. But you said it yourself and are correct this isn't Domestic Violence. His on tape kicking some racist bitch while she was the ground while his boys are trying to hold him back. What does he get for that I dunno? Does Roger know? The only thing his been consistence at is being inconsistence. Doubt he gets time served because of optics of it. With that said we have by far the best backfield in the league. Go Browns!!!

Wow. Does this team have no morals or ethics anymore? First they decide to draft a QB who's running from cops and grabbing his stuff and now they are signing a woman beater. 

You misspelled Joe Mixon.

Yeah what's worse a kick- or the Joe Mixon one punch KO in college that IIRC cost him nothing in the way of a suspension. Rappoport was opining six games for Kareem....

Please point me to the nearest successful NFL team with a roster of nothing but wholesome clean guys, Hell forget successful, point me to ANY NFL team that has that.

I guess this board is going to stop pretending it cares about women with our collective holier than thou treatment of the Steelers regarding the continued employment of Ben Roethlisberger, right? I mean, we can finally put that to bed.
