It is Wednesday, November 2, 2022, and the NFL trading deadline came and went on Tuesday without any transactions for the Cleveland Browns.
That means, after weeks of intense speculation, that running back Kareem Hunt was not traded.
Hunt staying with the Browns is the top story in the Wednesday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. Kareem Hunt Stays Put
The reactions across social media show a fanbase that is relieved that Hunt is still with the team.
Hunt, a native Ohioan, will play out his contract and become a free agent at the end of the season.
He joins a talented group of running backs that will test free agency in 2023.

The Browns chose to retain Hunt over trying to gain trade picks or by making another team significantly better down the stretch of the 2022 season by adding Hunt to its roster.
