The NFL suspended the star running back after he kicked and shoved a woman in a hotel in Ohio last year.
The general manager of the Browns said the organization believes Hunt "deserves a second chance."
The NFL disciplined Kareem Hunt only after video was released of his assault.
The Kansas City Chiefs released Hunt on Friday after TMZ posted security camera footage of the February incident.
The NFL team issued a statement saying the running back lied when asked about the video, which allegedly shows Hunt assaulting a woman in Ohio.
