Bengals | Margus Hunt more confident this year

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 18:58:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals DE Margus Hunt is a more confident player this year after spending last season making the transition to defensive end. "Last year I had to learn the end spot, inside, it was really overwhelming. I was really slow with my play," Hunt said. "(Playing one spot has helped) a lot. I'm comfortable where ever they can put me because I've been in the system for a year and I know the plays. Last year that was a big issue, the plays. Every day there was something new, something different and I was trying to memorize all that. I feel more comfortable with what I have to read." Hunt is in the mix for the starting left end job.
