Like him or not, running back Kareem Hunt is getting a second chance in the NFL as a member of the Cleveland Browns.

Last week during OTAs, Hunt spoke to the media for the first time since his incident and said that he promised GM John Dorsey that he will never commit an act of violence again. He knows that he has to earn that trust and that he is under a zero-tolerance policy from Dorsey. You can read more about Hunt’s reaction to what he did, and the steps he’s undertaken to be a better person, here.

One of the things he’s turned more to is his faith, as he said he was going to be baptized this past Sunday at True Vine Baptist Church in the Glenville area “so he could feel reborn.” It turns out that Hunt had some unexpected support from the Browns’ front office, as both Dorsey and head coach Freddie Kitchens surprised him.

It’s a sign of unity and family. He’s still living under a zero-tolerance policy, but he will get a fresh start in Cleveland and the organization hopes he stays true to his word.
