Report: Jets' RT Hunter on trade block
By James Walker
New York Jets starting linebacker Bart Scott has company.
According to the New York Daily News, the Jets have also put starting right tackle Wayne Hunter on the trading block. Hunter is coming off an awful season, during which he allowed the most sacks on the team.
The Jets turned some heads when they guaranteed Hunter's $2.45 million salary for 2012. New York was expected to search for an upgrade.
New York needs someone who can better protect the quarterback's front side, regardless of whether it's Mark Sanchez or Peyton Manning. Similar to Scott, Hunter's trade value is very low, and his salary is guaranteed. That makes it unlikely to work out a trade.
Free agency starts on Tuesday.
