FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The agent for offensive lineman Wayne Hunter told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that his client has agreed to terms with the New York Jets on a four-year deal.
Agent Kenny Zuckerman said that “there was some other sincere interest from a few teams,” but Hunter chose to remain with the Jets because “Wayne and his family love the Jets organization.”
Teams can’t officially sign players until Friday.
Hunter provides the Jets with depth on the offensive line, particularly at right tackle, where he filled in late last season when starter Damien Woody went down with a season-ending injury. Woody was cut before the lockout and could be considering retirement.
Hunter has played the last four seasons in New York after spending playing for Seattle and Jacksonville.
