Browns signed RB Kareem Hunt, formerly of the Chiefs, to a one-year contract.
Hunt was always going to get a second chance, but it is stunning that the Browns have taken the plunge before his suspension was even announced. He will remain on the commissioner's exempt list until official punishment is handed down. Browns GM John Dorsey is one of the people responsible for drafting Hunt in Kansas City, so it is not surprising he is the one to make the move. It is surprising in that rookie second-rounder Nick Chubb was one of the best backs in the league last season, while the Browns made a big financial commitment to pass-catching back Duke Johnson last summer. Hunt will spend a good chunk of 2019 on the reserve/suspended list before heading to restricted free agency in the 2020 offseason.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports "all indications" are the Steelers plan to use the transition tag on free agent Le'Veon Bell.

Yikes. The first day the Steelers can apply the tag is next Tuesday. It is an almost stunning level of pettiness, but within the Steelers' rights via the collective bargaining agreement. Per reporter Gerry Dulac, under no circumstance would the Steelers consider actually keeping Bell. The scheme would also require Bell signing the tag. The Steelers' endgame would be: Getting Bell to sign the tag, matching an offer sheet from another team, and then trading Bell for compensation. It promises to be an acrimonious end to an exceedingly bitter feud.

• The Chiefs claiming veteran LB Terrell Suggs off waivers makes sense on a few levels. First, the team just lost DE Alex Okafor, who played 80% of the team’s defensive snaps against New England last week, to a torn pec. Second, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo coached Suggs as a Ravens assistant in 2013 and ’14. And third, as the No. 26 team in the waiver order, Kansas City knew by claiming him, and the $353,000 left on his contract, they’d block him from going back to Baltimore or to New England, which brings value, even if he refuses to report.

The AB show continues.


Hollywood, Fla. police have issued an arrest warrant for free agent Antonio Brown on felony burglary and battery charges.

It relates to a Tuesday incident outside of AB's house where a moving truck driver claims he was assaulted by Brown and his trainer, Glenn Holt. Holt was already arrested and posted $20,000 bond. Police have allegedly tried to contact AB multiple times, but he instead retreated inside his residence, barricading himself behind locked doors. Brown allegedly pelted the driver with a rock before then forcing his way into the truck, striking the individual, and then taking the items off the truck. Brown has been a major off-field headcase who is unlikely to ever play another NFL snap. He turns 32 in July.

Contract-year CB Quinton Dunbar has requested the Redskins release or trade him.

Entering the final year of his deal, Dunbar is coming off a breakout season that saw him grade out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 cover corner out of 128 qualifiers. He had contract talks with the previous regime, but those talks have apparently stalled with the new group in D.C. "I don't know them, and they don't know me," Dunbar said. Dunbar is currently scheduled to pull in just a $3.25 million salary in 2020 and wants to be paid like a top corner. The secondary is an extreme weak spot for the Redskins already, so getting rid of Dunbar won't be easy. Dunbar will reportedly play for the Skins if his request isn't met, so this doesn't appear to be at a nasty stage of development. Dunbar turns 28 this summer.
