    OT Wayne Hunter signs $1.2 Tender (Jets Tender)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [B][SIZE="5"]Hunter's deal worth about $1.2M[/SIZE][/B]

    NEW YORK -- Jets backup offensive lineman Wayne Hunter has signed his one-year tender, keeping the restricted free agent in New York after helping pave the way for the NFL's top-ranked rushing game last season.

    Hunter, entering his fourth season with the Jets, signed the deal worth about $1.2 million Tuesday. He has filled in at tackle and as a blocking tight end on goal-line and short-yardage situations.

    Hunter was a third-round pick of Seattle out of Hawaii in 2003 and also has played with Jacksonville in his seven-year career.

    His signing leaves running back Leon Washington, backup quarterback Kellen Clemens and cornerback Drew Coleman as the Jets' remaining unsigned restricted free agents.

    Did Slauson get any playtime last season? Did he facepaint? Is that allowed in the NFL?

    Played one series in one game if I remember correctly, don't remember which game though

    It was the game against Tampa Bay, he was in at center when Mangold went down briefly

    He played a series after Mangold got kicked in the newgynongs.

    Regarding Hunter, that's a nice salary when you compare it to say, LW. Yeah, he's a decent back-up but he gets his fair share of penalties; holding, illegal motion, and I believe I recall a couple of illegal formations involving him too.
