OT Wayne Hunter signs with Bills
Buffalo Bills’ head coach Rex Ryan said they would sign offensive tackle Wayne Hunter and, well, today it is officially done. Is this much ado about nothing? Perhaps, Wayne has been out of football since 2012 so it’s more to add insurance at OT than bringing in a potential starter.
“He is a guy that did a tremendous job for us early,” said Ryan. “I think in an ideal world there are some players for whatever reason that are better in multiple roles and being almost like a utility guy, playing guard, tackle, tight end. Giving you a lot of that versatility, a smart athletic guy.”
Hunter (6-5, 318) began his NFL career as a third-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks (2004) where he spent his first two professional season. After a year in Jacksonville, Hunter spent the next four years with the Jets before one final year in St. Louis (2012). Hunter was a NY Jet during from 2009 to 2012 under Rex Ryan.
