jeaniec Posted July 26, 2015 Share Posted July 26, 2015 x-Jets tackle Wayne Hunter, released by Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills, will retire, per report Darryl Slater | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com By Darryl Slater | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com Email the author | Follow on Twitter on July 21, 2015 at 5:55 PM, updated July 21, 2015 at 6:03 PM Ex-Jets right tackle Wayne Hunter's audition with Rex Ryan's Bills didn't last long. The Bills cut him Tuesday, 20 days after they signed him. They had put Hunter through a tryout before signing him. Hunter turned 34 earlier this month. He hadn't been with an NFL team since the Rams cut him in the spring of 2013. So a subsequent report from ESPN.com's Mike Rodak that Hunter has decided to retire came as no surprise. Rodak reported it was Hunter's call for the Bills to release him, because he is no longer physically able to play. Hunter played for the Jets from 2007-11. He was their starting right tackle in 2011. They traded him to the Rams in August of 2012. He is perhaps best known for what happened in the 2011 season finale, in Miami. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes argued with Hunter in the huddle, resulting in Holmes' benching for the remainder of the game. http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2015/07/ex-jets_tackle_wayne_hunter_released_by_rex_ryans.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
