Hunter spent over three years in Tennessee before he was waived and later claimed by the Dolphins.
Miami elected to move on from Hunter after a few weeks and he later caught on with the Bills and wound up finishing out the 2016 season in Buffalo. The Steelers signed him to a contract the following year and elected to bring him back on a one-year contract this past April.
Hunter will be an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
In 2018, Hunter appeared in five games for the Steelers and caught three passes for 21 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
