NFL Suspends Kareem Hunt for Eight Games

The NFL has suspended Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt for the first eight games of the 2019 season for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

Hunt was released by Kansas City in November after video surfaced showing him shoving and kicking a woman at a Cleveland hotel in February of 2018. He was never arrested and is not facing criminal charges. He signed with the Browns in February.

Hunt's suspension is not a surprise, but now that the length is known, Cleveland can make plans concerning Duke Johnson, their backup runner who has been the subject of trade rumors. Nick Chubb, the 35th overall pick in the draft last year, will be the starter.

It's a great pickup for the Browns and just adds to the offensive firepower. And he arrives with no baggage other than the suspension. These incidents seem so common place now, that public (media?) outrage seems to have died down.

Shame for the Chiefs whose offense seemed to be slightly less effective after they cut him. I don't think their organisation had much choice about that given that he'd reportedly lied about the incident when asked by team officials'

It's not the suspension that's the baggage, it's the beating and lying. *Sigh*

The interesting occurrence will be what the Chiefs do about Hill.
