Canadian offensive lineman Ryan Hunter visited with the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old spent two seasons in Kansas City and won a Super Bowl with the Chiefs last February. He was released by the team following training camp in September and been a free agent ever since.

Hunter went unselected in the 2018 NFL draft, but signed with the Chiefs immediately afterwards as a priority undrafted free agent. He impressed during rookie training camp and earned the chance to work his way on to the 53-man roster by developing in the practice squad. The six-foot-three, 316-pound o-lineman has played in three career NFL games.

The Toronto Argonauts selected Hunter in the first round of the 2018 CFL draft.

The North Bay, ON started 12 games at left tackle in 2017, 12 at right tackle in 2016, 14 at left guard in 2015 and played in all 14 games in 2014 even getting on the field as a fullback during his Bowling Green State University career. All four playing seasons Hunter was an academic All-Mid-American Conference and MAC distinguished scholar-athlete. He majored in criminal justice.

Hunter has earned over $370,000 playing in the NFL and could bring valued experience to an LA line looking to better protect 2020 first round draft pick, quarterback Justin Herbert.
