Justin Hunter visiting Patriots

Wide receiver Justin Hunter bounced between three teams last year and is back on the market as a free agent in search of a home for the 2017 season.

Hunter’s first visit of this year’s free agency session will be with the Patriots. Field Yates of ESPN.com reports that Hunter will meet with the team.

Hunter spent camp and the preseason with the Titans, who drafted him in the second round of the 2013 draft and then released him before the start of the 2016 season. He was claimed off of waivers by the Dolphins, got waived again a few weeks later and played out the rest of the year with the Bills.

He wound up with 10 catches for 189 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games for the Bills. At 6’4″, Hunter would add some size to the Patriots receiving corps that’s lacking it, but it’s hard to imagine he’d be guaranteed much beyond a chance to make the team if he did sign with New England.

  1. I can totally see him signing with the Pats for next to nothing and then blowing up with his near Randy Moss physical ability. Things like that just happen in NE.

    A blow out year performance wise, and a Ring… Then he’ll have market value… Its the way Bill rolls…

    Some career YPAs: Montana 7.51, Brady 7.49, Matt Ryan 7.44, Marino 7.34 – and ariani’s team QB – Bradford 6.6.

  7. There’s someone knocking 7 time Super Bowler Brady? Haha. Knock away.
    Knock 5 times, once for each ring.

  8. The guy is 6’4″, I can see him being an attractive target with a 5’9″ corner covering him inside the 10 yardline. Heck, look at what Chris Mathews did three years ago in the super bowl. If the Hawks won he might have been MVP.

  9. Bill is always looking for matchup problems, especially ones that come with value like Dion Lewis. How do you defend Hunter and Lewis with the same defender? Brady is great at exploiting those mismatches.

    There is about a 10% chance Bill signs him, he makes the team, and he sees the field but Belichick is always thinking.

    Tom had the 2nd highest yards per attempt in the league last year (8.23) behind, heh, Matt Ryan.

  11. between ariani and terripet, this has been one of the dumbest back and forth on this site and that is saying a lot.

    Is “2 yard tom” what you call a voice that talks to you inside your head?
