The NFL has suspended Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt for 8 games for violation of the league’s personal conduct policy.

Hunt was shown on video to shove and kick a woman during a February 2018 altercation outside his downtown Cleveland residence.
The video’s release, and Hunt’s denial of the incident, led to the Kansas City Chiefs releasing him last November. The Browns signed him in February.
Hunt’s agent, Dan Saffron, says no appeal will be filed for the suspension.

Cleveland has added plenty of talent this off-season with the acquisition of Odell Beckham Jr in a trade from the New York Giants earlier this week as well as defensive end Olivier Vernon whom they signed in free-agency.
