Congrats on the new RB Huntsman. Not sure how many games you'll get out of him, but it'll be good while he lasts.

I thought we had a good 1-2 punch with Chubb and Duke.  Now we good a good 1-2-punch-kick...  I havent heard any terms other than a 1-year deal.  I imagine he'll get suspended at least 6 games, but they'll now own his rights after that.  As a father of 2 girls, gonna be hard to root for that guy.  Unless he rushes for 1k and 10TD's then everythings forgotten...

I'm speculating whether they're getting a cheap, pro-bowl RB for part of the year, then potentially let him leave as a RFA and get a draft pick out of it. I assume they'd want him long term, but as good as Chubb was, it'd be hard to take the ball away from him. Seems like it could potentially do more harm than good if you mess up the team dynamics that had been doing well. Who knows. I don't condone what he did in any way, but I'm not naive to think he wasn't going to get his second chance at some point in the year. It's an entertainment industry and as much as we want them to all be "good guys" it's just not going to happen.

OK, I am not an NFL afficianado, but I try to follow the news.

This signing by the Browns really digs at me.  I get it, he is a supreme talent, and he was out of the league for less than a year.  His issue is he punches and kicks women.
On the other side, is a past SB quarterback who knelt in a peaceful protest for police brutality at the time of Ferguson, Trayvon Martin, and other incidences where it would not be a stretch to say the punishment (death) outweighed the crime and it could have been motivated by fear of a different race.  Now, the National Anthem is not compulsory for NFL'ers, or at least it wasn't prior to Kaep's actions.  In fact, the Department of Defense paid the NFL $8M to have the National Anthem televised for military awareness (if I remember correctly, this should be fact checked).

So, as a non-fan fan of the NFL, has the league essentially said to its fans, it is OK if you hit and punch women if you are fast and strong, but you cannot have an opinion?  I look back at Greg Hardy, and others (I know Ray Rice never got back into the league) and wonder what is the message.  I do believe in second chances, but i am not sure an individual can turn around in 5 months.  Changing one's psyche is more akin to turning around a battleship than a Yugo.

I also know, Hunt hasn't been cleared to play by the league, but the fact the NFL permits him to be signed to a contract speaks volumes... to me anyway.

Please tell me why i am wrong...

Hard to tell you you're wrong when you arent.  My personal opinion is he'll get between 12-16 games. And I do believe that is fair.  Zeke got suspended for 6 games with no video evidence.  Until a policy is put in place where it's 1 strike and your'e out when it comes to domestic violence, it will continue to happen with these laughable suspensions.  It will never happen with numbnuts as commish though.

I got nothing on this, we will have to see how this unfolds.  Maybe I will meet him this summer during couples golf.
