It’s official, the Browns are bringing running back Kareem Hunt back home to where he did some kicking exactly a year ago. You might remember the incident where the then-Chiefs running back kicked a woman at a downtown Cleveland hotel. There was also a possible incident on Put-In-Bay out on Lake Erie, but here are the Browns taking a very small risk and signing the all-Pro to a one-year restricted deal. You add Hunt and Nick Chubb to Jarvis Landry and Baker Mayfield and you have a pretty good offense coming together in The Land.
And the NSFWBDs know it. They see what general manager John Dorsey is doing here. They know adding Hunt makes the Browns and even bigger favorite to win the AFC North. They know the Steelers are in disarray and the Ravens are overvalued.
It’s early, but the reaction is rolling in and most are thinking this puts the Browns over the .500 hump.
