  Patriots | Justin Hunter not an option yet    Mon Jul 22, 06:50 PM

Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Steelers) is not expected to sign with the New England Patriots at this point even though he worked out for the team Monday, July 22.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are hurting at the position right now and could use a camp body. Both Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thoams are banged up entering camp, so we'll see if the Patriots go ahead and make a move at the position sometime soon.

  Patriots | Justin Hunter works out for Pats    Mon Jul 22, 01:51 PM

Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Steelers) worked out Monday, July 22, for the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hunter has size and speed, but has never put it together in the NFL. He can contribute on special teams to help his chances, but he is likely just being brought in as a potential camp body to take snaps while Julian Edelman is out.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter working with starters    Sat Jun 2, 12:11 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter has been working with the first-team offense during organized team activities while WRs Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster have been absent.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised Hunter is getting this work...especially considering the absences at camp. One should not be surprised either by Hunter's physical talent. He's always had an intriguing skill set, size/speed combination but Hunter has never really done more than flash here and there as a pro.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter may be deep threat    Mon May 7, 03:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter could be used as a deep threat in the passing game this upcoming season since the team traded WR Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2013, Hunter has always had the physical ability to do more. He's definitely got the speed to take the top off the defense, but with only 82 career receptions Hunter is not a lock for the 53-man roster...even with Bryant traded away.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter will be in uniform    Thu Sep 28, 02:16 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter said he will be active in the team's Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: He'll be way behind Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and even JuJu Smith-Schuster. It's worth keeping an eye on, but aside from depth, there's no real reason to have him on your roster.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter keeps making plays    Thu Aug 3, 10:34 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter is 'making a lot of plays,' head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: Hunter can push Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates for the last spot at wide receiver, and if Martavis Bryant stays in league discipline limbo, Hunter's chances of making the team go up.

  Steelers | Big Ben praises Justin Hunter again    Wed Aug 2, 02:18 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter continues to impress QB Ben Roethlisberger early in training camp, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Hunter still has a shot to grab Martavis Bryant's touches, since Bryant is still dealing with reinstatement after last year's suspension. That said, Hunter has always been all hat but no cattle and has only been a fantasy tease despite a lot of talent. The Steelers also have a good prospect in JuJu Smith-Schuster and will always find targets for Antonio Brown, so there may not be a ton for Hunter to do. Bottom line: we're not sold until the pads come on.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter impressive early    Sat Jul 29, 01:48 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Hunter could possibly fill a role as a deep threat if it takes Martavis Bryant a while to return to form, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Hunter has always had more potential than he's ever played up to. Bryant has yet to be fully reinstated by the league coming off his year-long suspension in 2016. Even if Bryant is slow to get up to speed, we don't see Hunter doing that much.

  Steelers | Sammie Coates to compete for job    Wed Apr 26, 10:12 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Sammie Coates will have to compete with WR Justin Hunter for a roster spot after WR Martavis Bryant was reinstated.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of shock after all of the offseason buzz around Coates last year. He should be able to hold off Hunter, but there might be some disappointment with the development of the 2015 third-rounder in the organization if he is really competing to stay on the roster. His dynasty value has taken a huge hit with the reinstatement of Martavis Bryant this week.

  Steelers | Justin Hunter agrees with Steelers    Wed Mar 15, 11:05 AM

Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Bills) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, March 15.

Footballguys view: Hunter is a great athlete who can fly down the field and adjust to poorly thrown passes. He's never really flourished in the NFL, but Hunter is big enough and athletic enough to work as a red-zone threat at least in the high-powered Steelers offense.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh hosting Justin Hunter    Mon Mar 13, 03:39 PM

Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Bills) is visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Hunter has very good physical skill, but he's failed to play up to his potential in multiple NFL stops. At most, he could be a red-zone option and reserve receiver for a team like the Steelers.

Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Bills) visited the New England Patriots Friday, March 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hunter has always been a super athletic WR, but in his two stops (Titans, Dolphins, Bills) around the NFL he's never really flourished. He could be used as a red-zone target no matter where he lands.

  Bills | Justin Hunter will be active    Fri Oct 7, 09:00 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Justin Hunter was informed he'll be active in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Hunter doesn't have stiff competition for playing time in three-side sets with Walter Powell and Marquise Goodwin lining up alongside Robert Woods. Hunter's physical ability is unquestioned, but he has been inconsistent on and off of the field. Deep dynasty league players should take notice of his progress.

Buffalo Bills WR Justin Hunter has been working on learning the offense and may be active for the team's Week 5 game, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said the team will see how Hunter does on the practice field before deciding on his status.

Footballguys view: Hunter may be able to play, but fantasy owners -- even deep dynasty owners -- should not be dialed in here. We'd be shocked if he made much of an impact with the Bills.
