In exciting news for Cleveland Browns fans, the team has brought back their former running back, Kareem Hunt. The agreement is for a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, marking Hunt's return to his football home according to Ian Rapoport. This move comes as the Browns grapple with the loss of star running back Nick Chubb.
While the Browns showcased the promising talent of Jerome Ford during Chubb's absence, Kareem Hunt's return makes perfect sense. Hunt was not only one of the top available free agent running backs but also boasts extensive experience in the Browns' offensive system. His familiarity with Coach Kevin Stefanski's scheme positions him as the ideal fit to bolster the Browns' running game.
With Hunt and Ford in the backfield, the Browns are poised to have a formidable rushing attack that will keep defenses on their toes.
Kareem Hunt's return has not gone unnoticed in the world of fantasy football. He has quickly become the top trending free agent addition, with over 440,000 fantasy teams adding him to their rosters following his visit with the Browns. Additionally, Jerome Ford has also garnered attention as a valuable asset based on his performance in the Browns' recent game against the Steelers.
As Hunt returns to Cleveland, fans are eagerly anticipating his impact on the field and the exciting possibilities he brings to the Browns' offense.
