Browns have Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and now Kareem Hunt in the backfield. My goodness.

The #Browns signed RB Kareem Hunt to a 1-year deal that could be worth more than $1M not factoring in the suspension, source said. More than the minimum. After this year, he’ll be an RFA.

First time, long time.
Let's see what kind of "backlash" the Browns get. My guess is it'll be minimal.

I also think any potential negative press is the reason the Bears didn't sign Hunt. Which is a huge mistake, IMO.

Sucks for Chubb and Duke. At least it will when he's done with his suspension. Browns gonna win their division next year.

You can find guys like Kareem Hunt all the time in the later rounds of the draft. And without the baggage. Bears dodged a bullet. Not worth the PR nightmare.

Browns the only team to offer him a deal? Seems like if he had waited another team could have offered a bigger role.

I thought Hunt was on the commissioner's exempt list making any transactions involving him to be prohibited?

I normally would not disagree, because it is possible to find good RB talent in all rounds, BUT we don't have enough draft picks this year to say that we will just go find the next Hunt in the draft, when we might just end up spending a draft pick on a kicker.....

IDK why people keep thinking this. Hunt was a top 5 back, no you can't find guys like him "all the time" in the later rounds, its quite the opposite.

The position has been devalued over the years but the statistics still show that it is better to draft early if you are looking for a starter.

Of the 207 players drafted 33 have become starters for half their careers. This gives an indication that there is a lot of Running Back By Committee (RBBC).
There is a very high bust rate for RBs. The first round gives you a 58% chance of finding a starter followed by 25% in the second, 16% in the third, 11% in the fourth, 9% in the fifth, 6% in the sixth and 0% in the 7th.
If you rank the rounds by the total RBs drafted you find that the greatest number are drafted in the 7th, followed by the 4th, 6th, 2nd, 3rd, 1st, and 5th.
