Hunter, 33, has not played in the NFL since 2012, when he played in 12 games (with four starts) for the St. Louis Rams. Hunter started 21 games for the New York Jets from 2009-11, when current Bills coach Rex Ryan was the Jets' head coach.
Hunter's two-year absence from football before re-emerging Wednesday prompted ESPN NFL analyst Damien Woody, a teammate of Hunter with the Jets, to make a crack on Twitter:
Former Jets OT Wayne Hunter is trying out for the Bills today. (via @mikerodak) Should I try out too then?!— Damien Woody (@damienwoody) June 17, 2015
The Bills have a need for depth at offensive tackle, even after Seantrel Henderson returned to mandatory minicamp Wednesday.
