Kareem Hunt of the Cleveland Browns was notified today that he has been suspended without pay for the Browns' first eight regular season games for violations of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy in connection with physical altercations at his residence in Cleveland last February and at a resort in OH last June.

The NFL added it had interviewed Hunt multiple times and that the running back had accepted responsibility for his conduct and the subsequent suspension.

He was released by the Kansas City Chiefs last November after video surfaced of his involvement in an altercation where Hunt can be seen shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in February 2018.

"I respect the league's decision on discipline", Hunt said. The Browns signed him in February. The Browns expected that Hunt would receive between an eight and 10-game suspension when they signed him, according to a report from NFL Media. "I know that my behavior hurt a lot of people, and I again apologize to them", he said in a statement released by the team.

Hunt admitted he was "in the wrong" and apologized to the woman in the video, the Chiefs organization, and his family.

Ex-Broncos TE Matt LaCosse signing with Patriots
LaCosse (6-6, 255 pounds) entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of IL with the New York Giants in 2015. According to ESPN's Field Yates , ex-Gang Green defensive tackle Mike Pennel is joining the New England Patriots.

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 National Football League determines from their ongoing investigation. General manager John Dorsey drafted Hunt in Kansas City and felt the OH native was contrite and deserved a second chance. I'm extremely grateful that John Dorsey, Dee and Jimmy Haslam and the Cleveland Browns organization are granting me the opportunity to earn their trust and represent their organization in the best way possible on and off the field.

The NFL has a baseline punishment of six games under the personal conduct policy for incidents involving violence, although there have been notable exceptions where suspensions have fallen below this mark.

"We want to thank the Browns for the unwavering support they have shown Kareem", a statement from his agent read. "We also want to acknowledge the NFLPA, who has provided a great deal of guidance for Kareem throughout the process". Last season, he rushed for 824 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games and had seven receiving touchdowns before he was released.
