BENGALS: Hunt settles in
June 21, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
A year ago, Margus Hunt will tell you he was overwhelmed and unsure as a rookie. But as he went off into the NFL’s hibernation period last week, defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and defensive line coach Jay Hayes said good-bye to a very different left end.
“I can’t wait to see him,” Hayes says of training camp, “at (291) pounds and hunting guys.”
That would be about 11 more pounds than Hunt worked with last season while keeping intact what people around Paul Brown Stadium call his “freakish,” 6-8 athleticism. Couple it with a spring-long stint at only left end that has simplified matters and Hayes is confident enough to make some projections even before the pads go on in late July.
