Earnest Byner says he’s in favor of the Browns giving Kareem Hunt a second chance … IF the ex-Chiefs superstar and the team can show he’s a changed man.
celebrityslammer Sports spoke with the ex-Brown shortly after Cleveland inked the troubled RB … and he says BOTH Hunt and the team have to show more for him to accept the controversial signing.
Byner — who trained with Hunt before the draft — tells us he wants to see if Kareem has “gone through a process of development” before he throws his support behind the move.
Don’t get it twisted … Earnest says he’s all in favor of second chances — he just believes what Kareem did to a female in an altercation at a Cleveland hotel last year was unacceptable.
“We don’t support the violence against women. Okay? That will never happen. That should not be.”
For their part … both general manager John Dorsey and Hunt himself issued statements insisting the running back has learned his lesson.
“What I did was wrong and inexcusable,” Hunt said Monday.
“That is not the man I was raised to be, and I’ve learned a great deal from that experience and certainly should have been more truthful about it after the fact.”
