Browns general manager John Dorsey, who drafted Hunt in the third round of the 2017 draft out of Toledo when Dorsey was the Chiefs’ GM, signed the running back to a one-year deal worth approximately $1 million, the newspaper reported. That figure will depend on how long his suspension from the NFL will be.

Hunt will be a restricted free agent after the 2019 season, the Plain Dealer reported.

Hunt will enter the new season on the NFL’s Commissioner Exempt list, which means he cannot play or practice with the Browns and cannot attend their games until his suspension is over, WOIO reported.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to announce a punishment for Hunt, who was not criminally charged after the incident, the television station reported. 

In 2017, Hunt led the NFL with 1,327 rushing yards as a rookie and was voted to the Pro Bowl, the Plain Dealer reported.

Hunt rushed for 824 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games before he was cut, the newspaper reported.
