1975 Profile: Scott Hunter

No. 16
"Hunter came to the Bills in July 1973 in a trade that sent defensive lineman Steve Okoniewski and running back Pete Van Valkenberg to Green Bay. He played in just one game for Buffalo (at Green Bay) and did not attempt a pass.
His three-year statistics with the Packers included 197 completions in 447 attempts and 2,904 passing yards. Scott took Green Bay to the Central Division crown in 1972 with less experience than any quarterback in 27 years. He started eight games for the Pack as a rookie in 1971 and was the regular in all 14 outings a year later.
Scott had four starting assignments in 1973 before being sidelined by an injured sternum. A Packers sixth-round draft choice, his best career day was 12 of 24 completions for 230 yards against Minnesota in 1971.
A regular for three seasons under Bear Bryant at Alabama, Hunter broke most of Joe Namath's passing records. He played in the Senior Bowl."
