The NFL said that Hunt’s suspension stems from a February 2018 incident in which he shoved and kicked a woman during an early-morning altercation outside his downtown Cleveland residence, and an incident in June 2018 that involved a physical altercation with other men at Put-in-Bay, Ohio.
Release of the video from the February incident, and the fact that Hunt had lied about it, prompted the Kansas City Chiefs to release the running back on Nov. 30. The NFL investigated a third incident in Kansas City, but said there would be no discipline from that.
Hunt was not charged in any of the incidents.
Hunt has advised the league that he accepts the decision.
Hunt will forfeit $303,529 of his $645,000 base salary with his eight-game suspension. Upon return he’ll have a chance to earn $200,000 in per-game roster bonuses. He’ll then be a restricted free agent next off season for the Browns. Continue reading [HERE].
