3/23/2010 - NFL Wayne Hunter New York Jets + more

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.
