ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – It looks like offensive tackle Wayne Hunter impressed enough during his two-day tryout the he’ll be sticking around for a while. Bills head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday, he expects the team to sign the former Jets tackle.
“Yeah we just put him through the individual drills. We weren’t putting him out there for any team drills. Just so he gets his feet wet and picks up some terminology and things like that,” said Ryan. “Where he will have a better chance is when we get back out there in training camp. It is good for a veteran player just to get out. I think he has impressed some coaches with how athletic he is. And he looks like he is in great shape. It will be fun watching him compete.”
Hunter’s been out of the league for two years, having last played in 2012 with the Rams. He will turn 34 next month, which would make him the second-oldest player on the roster behind running back Fred Jackson.
