Kareem Hunt Speaks With Media for First Time Since Signing With Browns

Hunt was released by the Chiefs in November 2018 after video footage showed him kicking and shoving a woman.

Browns running back Kareem Hunt spoke to the media for the first time in Cleveland on Wednesday. Hunt took to the podium following the Browns' second day of OTA's.

Hunt signed with Cleveland on Feb. 11, just over two months after being released by the Chiefs. Kansas City cut its leading rusher after a video surfaced of him kicking and shoving a woman in a Cleveland hotel. 

"It turned out to be good landing in a situation like the Browns, close to home again," Hunt said on Wednesday. "I just had to sit back [during my suspension] and keep faith and better myself as a person."

Hunt was suspended eight games by the NFL on March 15. He will be eligible for this first appearance with Browns on Nov. 10 when the Browns take on the Bills in Cleveland.
