INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the NFL scouting combine on Thursday (all times local):1:15 p.m.Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey did his homework before signing free agent Kareem Hunt.At least that’s what he told reporters Thursday.“We did extensive research. We talked to a lot of people and we felt comfortable with the information we had Womens Briean Boddy-Calhoun 2019 Jersey , listening to how remorseful he was, knowing that once he comes here there are no guarantees,” Dorsey said. “He’s going to have to earn respect in the Cleveland Browns organization by his actions not words.”The Kansas City Chiefs released their starting running back late last season after a video showed Hunt shoving and kicking a woman.Hunt signed a one-year deal with the Browns earlier this month but is currently on the commissioner’s exempt list and it’s not known when he’ll be allowed to play again.But after meeting with Hunt, Dorsey figured he was worth the risk.“He has a good heart. The act he did last year was egregious, we all know that Cheap Briean Boddy-Calhoun Youth Jersey ,” Dorsey said, acknowledging he found Hunt to be remorseful. Third-round pick in 2018 was invisible as a rookie, but team is hoping for more from defensive end this year."It pays to have friends in high places. For proof, look no further than defensive end Chad Thomas, a third-round selection by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft. Thomas had a rookie season to forget as he was a regular addition to the weekly inactive list and ultimately only saw the field for 22 plays all season. Despite that Cleveland Browns Britton Colquitt Jersey , the Browns are hoping for more from Thomas, who finished his four-year collegiate career at the University of Miami with 10 sacks, 26 tackles for loss and 103 total tackles.Alonzo Highsmith, the Browns vice president of player personnel and, like Thomas Womens Britton Colquitt 2019 Jersey , a former Hurricane, highlighted the second-year defensive end as someone who will “have an opportunity to play” in Sunday’s episode of Building the Browns. Thomas also has general manager John Dorsey in his corner, and Dorsey has shown a willingness to create opportunities for his draft picks to see the field. (See the trade of right guard Kevin Zeitler to clear a path for Austin Corbett as an example.)Back in February, Dorsey appeared on the team’s in-house show Cleveland Browns Daily anddropped a hint about opening up a path for Corbett and Thomas, according to 247Sports:The trade of defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah cleared out one of the obstacles in the way of Thomas seeing more playing time. Training camp and the preseason will probably move someone else out of the way.All kidding aside Cleveland Browns Drew Forbes Jersey , the Browns invested a third-round pick in Thomas, so they need to start seeing a return on that, especially given the lack of production from the backups along the defensive line last season. So while Highsmith and Dorsey have a vested interest in Thomas, a more objective take comes from Clyde Simmons, who worked as the team’s defensive line coach in 2018. An early injury slowed Thomas during training camp Womens Drew Forbes 2019 Jersey , and once the regular season got rolling the opportunities for him to show what he could do were limited. But Simmons still likes Thomas’ potential, as he told in January:The Browns are doing what they can to create an opportunity for Thomas to show why he was worth drafting in 2018. What he does with the opportunity is now up to him.
