Kareem Hunt, the running back who was cut by Kansas City in November after a video showed him pushing and kicking a woman the previous February, is off to the Cleveland. 

Browns General Manager John Dorsey, who oversaw the drafting of Hunt out of Toledo while he was GM in Kansas City, said he believes the NFL investigation into the incident will be over soon.

"It's my understanding that they're going to begin to wrap up their investigation," Dorsey said. "I would say within a couple weeks the penalty will be told to everybody."

"The optics, Brooke? Terrible. What a ... terrible message the #NFL is sending about domestic abuse and domestic violence, the way women are treated." - @cbrennansports on the Cleveland @Browns signing RB Kareen Hunt. https://t.co/7kmXJbHug5 pic.twitter.com/421DnwEGHB

Hunt still could be suspended by the NFL under its personal conduct policy.

Hunt, 23, had established himself as one of the NFL's most electrifying ball carriers before the Chiefs cut him for lying about the hotel incident. Hunt led the NFL in rushing as a rookie in 2017 with 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns.
