    The Browns signed Kareem Hunt to a 1-year deal.

    Depends on how long Hunt is suspended for, and many expect it to be lengthy.

    This move by the Browns seems incredibly tone deaf to me. There's little doubt in my mind that someone was going to sign him, and I believe in second chances, but I just wonder how Cleveland, in their wisdom (or lack thereof), can look at their community and justify this signing. The assault he is accused of happened in their city. I can't imagine how domestic abuse and women's groups in the city are reacting to this.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    I don't disagree overall, but was Hunt guilty of "domestic abuse"? It seems like using that term for every instance of violence against women undersells the horror of being trapped in an actual domestic abuse situation.

    Plus he is a hometown boy - so ever since he was released there has been a whispering of bring him home.

    Yes, I missed stated what he's been accused. I think my profession in social service work makes me extrapolate which social issues would have concerns about what this looks like. I think any organizations that works with violence against women will have issues with this signing.

    As for bringing the hometown boy home, I get the angle, but IMO, it almost makes it worse.
