The Cincinnati Bengals have lost another free agent with defensive end Margus Hunt signing a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

A second-round pick in 2013, Hunt struggled to develop into the player the Bengals had hoped he would. Hunt appeared in 44 games, recording 26 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

He joins tackle Andrew Whitworth (Los Angeles Rams), guard Kevin Zeitler (Cleveland Browns) and defensive tackle Domata Peko (Denver Broncos) as free agent departures from the Bengals.
