I went to toledo for two years and saw kareem play in college and he's definitely a gifted back.

People make mistakes, they f#$% up, but I think it's stupid to write off people for one thing.

Ray Lewis could've been involved in a murder, Michael Vick did horrible things with dogs, if they can give them a chance, why can't they give Kareem one?

what's up TU Rocket 🚀..I get this odd feeling Roger's holding his Hunt suspension announcement till his Combine presser..Teaching tool..to many media meatheads, have Hunt now getting additional 8-10 games..the worst thing Roger could do at this point, is to continue Hunt on the exempt list without addressing amount games suspended..claiming number of offenses lack time served in rehab sin bin...these suits could drag this out till draft night for NFL entertainment ratings at anytime..wipppee!!

Maybe finding a new way to fuck the Browns is still high on his priorities list.

After Gordon dresses in a patriots jersey for the 5th time after his 3 strikes your out policy..why not? if I were Dorsey I'd ask for another 5th from Pats, than a 6th from Roger;)

I’m predicting a 10 game suspension with credit for 5 games served in 2018. On the field in week 6. LOL probably wishful thinking but purely from a football standpoint would love to see it.

I’ve not read more than a page (if that) of this thread as I can imagine it’s about Hunt the person. 

I’ll say it now Kareem Hunt the player won’t beat out Nick Chubb. If Chubb stays relatively injury free he will be the best back in the NFL. 

But we have and it won’t stop me cheering him if he goes over the line for a TD. Its fuck all to do with me. I can’t pick and choose which player is allowed to score. If the browns score a TD I will celebrate. 

There are people earning millions of dollars a year to make these decisions, I’m not going to worry about it.

FWIW I think Hunt is a piece of shit and we never should have signed him.

One of the best backs in the league won't be available for a good portion of the season and anybody can get hurt.

No need to tag an RFA... you simply get his sig on an offer sheet and if anyone wants him then you get a draft pick. Doesn't even cost all that much for the pick to be a 1st-rounder.

 

And that may be the reason we signed him.  By the time he plays out his suspension, we won't have a lot of money in him.  If I could buy a 1st or 2nd rounder every year for a few hundred thousand dollars a year, I would do it.

Pretty good chance your definition of "piece of shit" would apply to over half the league. I dont support what he did at all but its far from a league of the moral majority.

Some guys just don't get injuries happen Mike. High draft picks? Someone is living in fantasy land. 31 other teams had a chance to sign Hunt for the cost of a contract, (and a minimal one at that) no draft picks involved. 

It's a near certainty Kareem is facing a lengthy suspension on top of it. Latest estimates are anywhere from a low of six, to a high of twelve games...

Quality depth never hurts a team.   This guy cost the Browns nothing (but minimal money)...and could give the Browns quality depth.  (his issues aside)

Some guys also will never be happy no matter what the team does.   Browns52 being one of those posters who does nothing but bitch and complain about everything.

If he is suspended 12 games doesn't that mean that we would actually get him for the remaining four games this year and another year because I think players have to be active for more than 25% of the season for it to accrue as a year on a contract. Much like Josh Gordon a couple years ago when he was suspended for the last game that season did not count towards his four-year contract.

Checked- it counts as an accrued season if Hunt is on the active roster for at least six games. If not, it's not an accrued season- which would mean Hunt wouldn't be a RFA until the 2021 league year.  

So, if Hunt gets suspended for more than 10 games, (personally, I don't think he will) your premise is correct...

I am hoping he gets a 10 game suspension with credit given for the 4 regular season he missed last year giving him to us in week 7.

I don't see him being given credit for last year since he was cut.

 

 

There is a difference between being released and suspended.

 

I do understand your thinking....I just don't see it happening.

EBut he was placed on the exempt list which is essentially a suspension so in my mind it should count because any team could’ve picked him up and use him if not for that

10 - 12 weeks?

WSS

I keep seeing 10 weeks.  

 

Question for any who might know.  Once Hunt is officially suspended, can he practice with the team or is he out of all activity?

 

If he can't do anything, I don't see how he is going to be much help down the stretch.

 

Just looked it up....no.  He can't even get a playbook.  Six games counts as a accrued season.  It's looking more like we signed him to gain his restricted status, tag him, then keep him or take the pick.

... Hence the reason(s)  why I said Duke isn't as expendable as many have speculated.

I never thought he was going to be expendable this season.  The deadline is the end of October every year.....that is like week 7 or 8.

 

I have always thought if Duke is traded, it would be after we sign Hunt to a long term deal, which would be next year.

Wasn't referencing you specifically, you just had the post content I wanted to quote.   Apologies for the confusion.

He cant be with team in season, but unless something has changed, he can participate in camp and preseason games, which he should have a playbook then

And IIRC, wasn't an exception made for Gordon?

When he was suspended for a certain number of games or indefinitely. No contact when indefinitely, but when it is a set number of games I believe they can.

Brady did, Edelman did I believe, some others blanking on
