Pete Hunter - Pro Football Career

Pro Football Career

Pete became a National Football League player after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys.

Hunter played a most of his short career as a cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys which is the only team he has had any defensive playing time for during the regular season. He racked up 43 tackles and three interceptions in 30 games. Hunter suffered a debilitating injury in 2004 that would limit him to just three games that season. On September 27, 2004, during the Dallas Cowboys' Monday Night Football victory over the Washington Redskins, Hunter tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee as he ran down the field, placing him on the injured reserve list for the remainder of the season. On July 14, 2005, the Dallas Cowboys traded Hunter to the New York Jets for a seventh round draft pick after he stated to the Dallas media that he did not want to be moved to Safety and he only wanted to play the Cornerback position. Missing some time early in training camp due to knee swelling, Hunter was waived by the Jets on August 10, 2005 after being on the team for less than three weeks.

The Cleveland Browns signed Hunter as a free agent on December 6, 2005, filling the roster spot opened by the injured Braylon Edwards. He saw action as a special teams player in 4 2005 regular season games but accumulated no statistics. Hunter's contract with the Browns was terminated prior to the start of the 2006 regular season, on September 2, 2006.

Famous quotes containing the words career, pro and/or football:

    “Never hug and kiss your children! Mother love may make your children’s infancy unhappy and prevent them from pursuing a career or getting married!” That’s total hogwash, of course. But it shows on extreme example of what state-of-the-art “scientific” parenting was supposed to be in early twentieth-century America. After all, that was the heyday of efficiency experts, time-and-motion studies, and the like.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    It is sweet and honourable to die for one’s country.
    [Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.]
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8 B.C.)

    People stress the violence. That’s the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there’s a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There’s a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, there’s a satisfaction to the game that can’t be duplicated. There’s a harmony.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
