Browns Officially Bid Farewell To Fan-favorite Rb

It appears that Kareem Hunt will not return to the Cleveland Browns this season after the organization assigned his jersey number to D'Onta Foreman.

Some freshly signed Browns players received jersey numbers on April 9. Hunt had worn No. 27 for five seasons, but Foreman grabbed it.

Foreman, who is projected to play a role like Hunt's for the Browns, made an intriguing pick.

Hunt joined Cleveland last season after Nick Chubb's Week 2 injury ended his season. He was on a running back committee with Jerome Ford and Pierre Strong Jr.

Hunt was loved for his furious running. He lacked his previous burst. Hunt's longest run last season was 16 yards.

He averaged 3.0 yards per rush on 135 carries for 411 yards on the season. His greatest contributions came in short-yardage situations.

Hunt scored two touchdowns—one receiving and one rushing—in a Wild Card defeat to the Houston Texans after a season-high nine rushing touchdowns.

Hunt considered returning to the Browns, his hometown team. Though he won't wear orange and brown next season, he'll still support the team.

I wish the organization and Cleveland Browns the best, and I'm glad I was part of this adventure for so long.
