Listen: John Dorsey, Browns And Kareem Hunt discussed on WAOK Programming
"Respected. Everybody's respect within the Cleveland Browns organization by his actions, not his works. And I've always lived this is at the end of the day, if a player not always good player, but a better person at the end of the day job, and that's tempting to do here. This is after hours with Amy Lawrence. Cleveland Browns, general manager, John Dorsey made this and owned it had a pre existing relationship with Kareem hunt from their days in Kansas City, and decided that he would be the one. The Browns would be the team to give hunt another opportunity. And as for him. But Kareem hunt made a promise to John Dorsey. And now has to follow it through it's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio. Thanks so much for tuning in Thursday is the start of Gulf next major Wilders. They've flipped the schedule this year. So the PGA championship, which used to be the fourth major is now the second major in his tucked in between the masters and the US open taking place at Bethpage Black, which is obviously a place where Tiger Woods has some pretty incredible memories. So the world's best, I this prestigious Wanamaker trophy and tiger shoots for back-to-back majors. His sixteenth overall wants to creep on Jack the PGA championship is this weekend on CBS. Cream hunt stood in front of reporters and media and answered all the questions asked of him on Wednesday the only day the media would have access to the Browns players. And he's saying and doing all the right things. Now, certainly there will come a time when he faces some stiff tests, no doubt. Being his hometown. Being in the place where over a year ago, last February February two thousand eighteen. He kicked shoved a young woman. Just lost his mind in the hallway of Cleveland hotel, where he was living. But because he's back in his hometown. There will be temptations. There will be -tunities he make better decisions. So right now. Because he's on his best behavior, because he's so thankful for new opportunity. Well. I don't know that there's a whole lot of. Feet to the fire. So to speak. But the dynamic of him being back home. There's there's good. And there's bad with that. But he did promise John Dorsey that he would make better decisions. And he intends to stick to it. Dorsey knows me very well. In Kansas City, and we had a real special connection type person I am that wasn't me definitely made a mistake and apologize. Or once again. And I told him. Come about a person. The only thing he can do, right? Can't go back and change it. If it was a mistake, we know it wasn't the first time he's ever got into an altercation at which he was not. So Burr, and full possession of his sentence, and making smart choices. There's a track record there. I would expect that the Browns are offering him all the support. And of course, expect him to go through counselling and, and some extra training. They're keeping an eye on him. No doubt. And they're, they're gonna have to wait out this eight game suspension. And I think him not being able to play for the first half of two thousand nineteen after the chiefs cut him at the end of well, wasn't even the end it lactobacillus of eighteen. That's a full year away from football in the prime of his career member. He led the NFL rushing in the seventeenth season. So nothing else. Missing out on a year. The prime of his career is not something easily forgotten. And so I believe in when right now he talks about. Making better choices and not putting himself in that same position again. Because it's so real. There's only so much he can do in his off season. There's only so much he can do with his teammates because pretty soon football goes away, again taking very seriously like day by day. I'm just making the best decisions at the time in place. And doing everything I can prevent something from happening again this, making better decisions this is, you know, I gotta make better decisions all around, what I really."
