Browns sign Kareem Hunt

Recommended Posts

I have Chubb in one of my fantasy leagues. I'm not happy with this signing. Although I am all for Hunt getting a second chance provided he has worked on correcting the issues that led to his currently being on the commissioner's exempt list.

I think it was a smart move by the Browns.

Chubb and him are a double headed running nightmare for those who will be playing them.

This is probably a good move. He probably came cheap because of this incident. So really there probably is low risk.  If he has turned his life around it could work amazing. If he screws up it didn’t cost much. From what I read he is now engaged to this woman and has said how embarrassed he is. Time will tell.

I agree.  I don’t think Cleveland has much to lose here.  It would be one thing if this were a third chance or a Josh Gordon situation.  But I don’t think Hunt’s transgressions warrant banishment (whether formal or informal).

 

A lot more potential upside than downside.

 

John Dorsey continues to impress me.  He might well be building a powerhouse in Cleveland.  And let’s not forget who his protege is.

Too soon, and not worth it.  Let Cleveland deal with the PR nightmares......  This league has proven you can get away with murder, and make the hall of fame.... so not surprised, just disgusted.....

 

Plenty here talk of how horrible it would be having guys like AB, or LeVeon on this team, but then commend the Browns for moves like this.... amazing.

If the colts could get either of those players for cheap where it was low risk I don’t think anyone would coomplain. The problem with those two is they are not going to come cheap. If they came cheap and then got paid after they proved themselves I don’t think anyone would complain. This situation is nothing like the AB OR LB situation.  Ballard will take risk on a troubled player. He just isn’t going to pay them until they prove they can keep their nose clean.

What Hunt did had nothing to do with his team like Brown and Bell has done. Two different issues. He didn't quit or play diva with his team mates.

Big difference when the issues are off the field rather than on the field.

As far a PR nightmare the Browns have face a lot worse in their history than what this is going to bring.

When they start winning games this wont matter. We all know winning cures all the negative problems.

The woman he did  this to forgave him and they are engaged. He has also apologized. I think he deserves a second chance. No third chance though if he screws up again.

I think Hunt is better than Chubb but regardless whats wrong with having 2 good RB's?

And once in a while a player in the NFL will get injured. Now there's insurance if one of them gets injured.

I made a mistake. It is Tyreek  Hill that is engaged to the woman he abused not Hunt. I still think hunt deserves a second chance if he is doing things to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

I don’t know if I’d say he “deserves” a second chance.

 

But I would say that it’s fine with me that a team’s willing to give him one.  I wouldn’t have a problem if we’d have signed him.

The only problem is once they prove they can keep their nose clean, they will have been signed already or be much more expensive when the rest of the league realizes that too. Sometimes you have to take a risk like the Browns did. We'll see if it pays off for them.

Hunts new contract is only for 1 million and one year. It’s basically no risk. The LB AND AB thing is so much different.

I don't mean the amount of the contract, I just mean that Hunt won't repeat his previous actions. I 100% agree with you on Bell and Brown. I was personally hoping Ballard would of signed Hunt at that price for a year. At worst, we release him. If we don't re-sign him to a long-term deal, we could get a compensatory pick. Then, of course, best case scenario, we keep him for just money.

Chubb is already developed.  Most teams in the NFL uses RBBC so what the difference if the Browns do it with Chubb and Hunt?

IMO the Browns signing Hunt for a 1 million dollar contract for one year is a very good deal. At his age it's a no brainer contract.

I have to disagree. 2 good players are better than 1.

Hunt lied to either the FO or coaches (or both). I wouldn’t say his actions had nothing to do with the team. 

 

I think CLE is smart to do this now. There’s still FA and the draft to push this story to the back burner. Plenty of other things to cover and time to forget.

Hunt lied to either the FO or coaches or both is not the same as quitting on your team mates or being a diva and only caring for yourself.

Hunt being young and stupid is his issue.

Hunt was signed by an up and coming team and I think it was a smart move by both.

I know it's said almost every year, and the always prove everyone wrong....but the Browns might actually be on the upswing. Dorsey is making moves over there.

The bottomline is people DESERVE a 2nd chance. We can't permanently condemn someone for a mistake they made. People are entitled to change, it's what makes us great, our ability to learn from mistakes, adapt, and come out of the other side a better human being. I don't in any way condone this kind of thing, but I also choose to live by the saying "Don't cast judgment on a person just because they sin differently than you."  We all have problems/issues, some greater than others no doubt, but everyone deserves a chance to reconcile themselves, and grow through their various adversities.

I wouldn't say anyone necessarily deserves a second chance. But I don't agree with writing people off when they've lived down a mistake. I'm fine with a team doing their due diligence on Hunt and deciding they're okay with bringing him in. And Dorsey had a leg up on it because he drafted Hunt and knows him, to some extent.

    • What you are describing is a loss of faith, not blind faith. Being positive does bring faith. Till it becomes negative then the faith dwindles till it's gone. For me I don't give a lot of attention to who is drafted till they are drafted. I don't have the resources and a whole scouting team (and coaches) to help me make the choice. The largest part of what most see is what the media shows. That means schools that draw the most attention. Good GMs pay little attention to what the media has to say. (or what the fans think to be honest).
    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10.
