The NFL has suspended running back Kareem Hunt, now with the Cleveland Browns, for eight games under its personal conduct policy.

After the signing, Hunt issued a statement in which he once again apologized for the incident that occurred last February, and said he is "committed to following the necessary steps to learn and to be a better and healthier person from this situation".

In recent months, Hunt has been receiving counseling and assured Goodell he "accepts responsibility for his conduct and the discipline that has been imposed", the league said.

Hunt was on the commissioner's exempt list since November 30 during the NFL's investigation into a physical altercation captured by an OH hotel surveillance system in which Hunt shoved to the ground and kicked a woman.

"I want to again apologize for my actions past year", Hunt said in a statement released by the Browns.

Berry stockpiled 87 tackles, six quarterback hits and four interceptions on his way to a Pro Bowl rookie season. "Seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable".

"My commitment to earning the trust of the league, my team-mates, the organisation and this community through my actions will continue, and I understand there is a lot of hard work ahead of me before I'm able to fully return to playing the game I love". That's the nice way of saying a video showing him shoving and kicking a woman last February was obtained by TMZ and went viral. He will be eligible to return for the ninth game of the regular season (the full National Football League schedule will be released in April).

The NFL reportedly had trouble making contact with the victims in the case, which might have complicated their investigation. Hunt will be eligible to participate in offseason activities and preseason games, and his suspension will begin when regular-season rosters are cut to 53 on August 31.

Hunt will forfeit $303,529 of his $645,000 base salary with his eight-game suspension. For Madden enthusiasts, this correlated to Hunt holding a rating of 92 just behind Todd Gurley and Le'Veon Bell who are rated at 96 and 94, respectively.

Here is the full National Football League statement on Kareem Hunt's suspension, the resolution of a lengthy investigation. And now that they're actually playoff contenders, maybe this means running back Duke Johnson won't be as available as we thought. Hunt reportedly punched a man in the face in that incident.

"We want to thank the Browns for the unwavering support they have shown Kareem", a statement from his agent read.

In his rookie season, he led the National Football League with 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns.
