Bills Release Veteran OT Wayne Hunter, Plans To Retire


Mike Rodak of ESPN reports that veteran OT Wayne Hunter has decided to call it a career following his release by the Bills on Tuesday.

  • According to Rodak, Hunter’s release was his own decision, as his body wasn’t good enough to play.
  • Rodak adds that the Bills could pursue more offensive tackle depth before the start of training camp.


The Bills released veteran OT Wayne Hunter on Tuesday, according to the NFL Transactions release.

Buffalo surprisingly signed Hunter to a one-year contract worth $870,000 a few weeks ago, so his stay in Buffalo was obviously short lived.

Hunter, 32, was drafted in 2003 by the Seattle Seahawks and spent two seasons with the team, only seeing action in two games without earning a start before being waived in 2006.

He was later claimed by the Jaguars, but lasted only that one season without a start and only saw action in one game.

The Jets wound up signing Hunter to a contract back in 2008 where he remained for four seasons, starting 21 games. New York would later trade Hunter to the Rams in 2012.

Hunter hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2012 season.
