Seattle Seahawks Comeback
On January 2, 2007, Hunter was signed as a Free Agent to the Seattle Seahawks on the recommendation of coach Mike Holmgren to provide depth after they lost three of their four active cornerbacks to injury prior to the playoffs.
On January 6, 2007 he played his first game in Seattle, a Wild Card Playoff game against his former team, the Dallas Cowboys. Against the Cowboys in that game, Hunter had three tackles, defended one pass, and recovered a fumble when Cowboys tight end Jason Witten lost the ball. He was also the player who knocked down the Cowboys last second Hail Mary pass to seal the Seahawks' victory.
In a postgame interview on the Seattle Seahawks team site, Hunter was quoted as saying:
“I don’t know when I’m going to wake up – I’m not going to go to sleep tonight,”
On January 14, 2007, he played against the Bears in Chicago in a Divisional Playoff game. When Rex Grossman under threw a receiver, Hunter intercepted a pass at a pivotal point in the 4th quarter, preventing the Bears from scoring a touchdown. Unfortunately, Seattle threw an interception on the very next play. The Bears won the game with a field goal in overtime.
