Jets Trade Wayne Hunter to Rams

"Wayne... just uh, just block the Gatorade cooler." - C Nick Mangold to RT Wayne Hunter

In an interesting turn of events, the New York Jets have traded RT Wayne Hunter to the St. Louis Rams. In return, we have received former second overall pick RT Jason Smith. Just last week, Hunter was benched in favor of RT Austin Howard, and resumed his former position as the jumbo tight end. Smith will take this same position, an underachieving tackle like Hunter.

By all accounts, Hunter is a stand-up guy and truly a good person. Reportedly, he became frustrated by some hecklers last night and had to be restrained by Vladimir Ducasse. Hunter's confidence is at an all-time low, and the change in scenery might do him some good. I truly wish the best for him.

That said, the Jets were not looking to trade Hunter due to his guaranteed $2+ million contract. However, the Rams came to the Jets with this proposal, and the Jets seemingly chose to put Hunter out of his misery. In the end, I really feel bad for the fans over in St. Louis. This offseason, the Rams have acquired Brian Schottenheimer, Matthew Mulligan, Vernon Gholston, and Wayne Hunter. Quite literally, all of our worst players. Hopefully Smith isn't as worthless and hopefully lives up to his first round draft choice. One can dream.
