The ClevelandA Browns announced Monday that theya€™ve signed RBA Kareem HuntA to a contract.

According toA Ian Rapoport, the Browns have signed Hunt to a one-year contract that can be worth over $1 million, not factoring in a suspension.A 

Herea€™s the statement from Browns GMA John DorseyA regarding the decision to sign Hunt:A 

a€œMy relationship and interaction with Kareem since 2016 in college was anA important part of this decision making process but we then did extensive due diligence withA many individuals, including clinicalA professionals, toA have a better understanding of the person he is today and whether it was prudent to sign him. There were two important factors: one is that Kareem took full responsibility for hisA egregiousA actions and showed true remorse and secondly, just as importantly, he is undergoing and is committed to necessary professional treatment and a plan that has been clearly laid out.a€

a€œWe fully understand and respect the complexity of questions and issues in signing a player with Kareema€™s history and do not condone his actions. Given what we know about Kareem through our extensive research, we believe he deserves a second chance but certainly with the understanding that he has to go through critical and essential steps to become a performing member of this organization, aside from what the NFL determines from their ongoing investigation. We fully understand that Kareem is subject to discipline by the NFL. Here at the Browns, there is a detailed plan with expectations laid out that he understands and mustA follow,A because any similar incident will not be tolerated. We will support Kareem through this process and utilizeA our resources,A howeverA permitted, to help him become successful on and off the field as long as he continues to show the commitment necessary to represent this organization.a€
