Hunter has seven seasons in the NFL. He has spent three of those seasons with Denver. Hunter was signed as a free agent on August 20, 2010. He was informed after his signing that he would be moved from defensive end to linebacker. His modest contributions in 2010 included returning a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown in a game versus Kansas City on November 14, 2010. He was returned to the defensive end position when John Fox took over as the Broncos' head coach and did a good job filling in for Elvis Dumervil when Dumervil was sidelined with an injury. Hunter spent the 2012 season on the injured reserve list after tearing a triceps muscle during training camp.

In his three seasons with Denver, Hunter has accumulated the following statistics:
