BEREA — After Browns running back Kareem Hunt had been caught on video speaking to Cleveland police outside a downtown bar the night of June 29 after an apparent argument with a friend, the organization concluded Hunt hadn't done anything to warrant disciplinary action.

General Manager John Dorsey said Wednesday he's confident the NFL agrees with the Browns and doesn't view the recent Hunt incident as an issue.

"We've reviewed the facts," Dorsey added. "We understood what the facts were. [Coach] Freddie [Kitchens] and I both had a chance to sit down with [Hunt], and he understands there's no guarantees in life, and he is going about exactly what he's been going about. He is working his fanny off on the field as well as off the field."

The NFL suspended Hunt for the first eight regular-season games of 2019 because of physical altercations he had last year with a woman in downtown Cleveland and a man in Put-in-Bay. TMZ.com unearthed surveillance footage of the first incident in which Hunt shoved and kicked a woman, prompting the Kansas City Chiefs to cut him on Nov. 30. Dorsey signed Hunt on Feb. 11 and said the 2017 Pro Bowl selection is on a zero-tolerance policy with the Browns.

All of that made it noteworthy when Hunt was seen talking to police and the Browns felt the need to speak with him as a result.

"It's never been harder to be a player in the National Football League," Kitchens said. "Everything they do is under a microscope, and with the advancements of social media, every little thing, it doesn't matter how little or how small, it's always going to be made into a bigger deal.

"Kareem's always going to have our support. We're going to continue to support him, just like we do every player that we have, and again I'll reiterate that we want them to be a better person 50 years from now and still be able to sustain and be successful in life than just worrying about right now."
