WEDNESDAY, 1:12pm: The Bills officially announced that they have signed tackle Wayne Hunter, as Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post tweets.
The 33-year-old Hunter last appeared in the NFL as a member of the Rams in 2012, but he played under current Bills coach Rex Ryan from 2009-11 with the Jets. Hunter tried out for the Bills earlier this month and Ryan said at the time that he expected Buffalo to sign Hunter before training camp, ESPN’s Mike Rodak tweeted.
Although the Bills’ right tackle situation is unsettled, it seems unlikely Hunter will latch on with the team in any significant way – especially after being out of the league for three seasons and having struggled mightily throughout his career. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) ranked Hunter 71st out of 76 qualified tackles during his final year in New York, for which he started all 16 games in 2011.
