Saints signed OLB Phillip Hunt.

Hunt made his name by leading the CFL in sacks in 2010, but he has just four sacks in 24 career games in the NFL. One of those takedowns came in Week 1 of this season with the Lions, but Hunt was released the next week. He should be nothing but a depth signing even on New Orleans' struggling defense.

Lions signed DE/OLB Phillip Hunt.

Hunt made a name for himself in Canada by leading the CFL in sacks in 2010. That led to a two-year stint with the Eagles and an invite to Colts' training camp last offseason. Even if he makes the Lions' final roster, Hunt probably won't see much playing time next season.

Colts signed OLB Phillip Hunt.

28-year-old Hunt missed 2013 on I.R. with the Eagles. The former CFL standout has three sacks in 22 career games. With Robert Mathis suspended the first four games, Hunt will compete for a role as a situational pass rusher.

Eagles waived/injured OLB Phillip Hunt.

The reserve linebacker/special teamer will revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. Hunt has 16 tackles and three sacks across 22 career games.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 02:32:00 PM

Eagles OLB Phillip Hunt underwent surgery for a partially torn left ACL on Thursday and is done for the season.

Hunt is the fourth Eagle to tear his ACL this summer. The former CFL standout has three career sacks across 16 games the past two seasons. Hunt was competing for a backup spot, and he'll revert to injured reserve shortly.

The Sideline View's Adam Caplan is issuing a 2012 breakout alert for Eagles second-year DE Phillip Hunt.

Caplan has an insider's read on the Eagles, and he suggests Hunt could push for 8-10 sacks as the most explosive and underrated pass rusher among Philly's six defensive ends. Hunt won't be an every-down player, but he should have a big role in nickel and dime packages. Hunt had two sacks on few snaps last year.

Updating a previous item, DE Phillip Hunt was not among the Eagles' final cuts this weekend.

A Saturday report claimed Hunt was waived, but he played his way onto the roster with three preseason sacks. Hunt will open the season competing for nickel rusher snaps with Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp behind starting RE Trent Cole and LE Jason Babin. Hunt looks like the Eagles' fifth end at the moment.
Tue, Sep 6, 2011 04:55:00 PM

Eagles waived DE Phillip Hunt and DL Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.

Te'o-Neshiem made no noise as a 2010 third-round pick after being given an opportunity to play inside on nickel downs. Hunt racked up three sacks this preseason. It's pretty surprising that the Eagles didn't believe that was enough.
Sat, Sep 3, 2011 06:00:00 PM

Eagles agreed to terms with DE Phillip Hunt.

Hunt led the CFL with 16 sacks in 2010. He went undrafted in 2008 despite winning the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year award at the University of Houston. Hunt, 6'1/250, is considered less advanced than Cameron Wake was at this point two years ago. The Eagles hope he can develop into a situational pass rusher in the "Joker" role.

CFL sack leader Phillip Hunt is expected to sign with the Eagles within the next couple of days.

The Eagles made a late push after Hunt had drawn interest from the Vikings and Texans in previous weeks. Expect him to start out as a special teamer and occasional pass rusher if he makes the team out of training camp.
Fri, Feb 11, 2011 08:45:00 AM

The Eagles have reportedly joined the Vikings and Texans in pursuit of CFL pass rusher Phillip Hunt.

NFL teams have only five more days to sign Canadian League players before the window closes. Hunt has recorded 19 sacks over the past two years with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 16 of them coming in the 2010 season. Hunt isn't "nearly as advanced" as Cameron Wake when he joined the NFL. His ceiling is situational pass rusher.
Thu, Feb 10, 2011 08:22:00 PM

The Texans have joined the Vikings in showing interest in CFL pass rusher Phillip Hunt.

The window to sign CFL players ends on February 15. Hunt, 23, looks the part of a 3-4 OLB like the Texans need at 6'2/260. He also is a Houston native, having played college ball for the Cougars. As a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers this past season, Hunt led the Canadian League with 16 sacks.
Tue, Feb 8, 2011 11:01:00 AM

Winnipeg Blue Bombers DE Phillip Hunt, who led the CFL with 16 sacks in 2010, is reportedly drawing interest from the Vikings.

Undrafted out of Houston in 2009, Hunt was in training camp with the Browns, lasting just one preseason game. At 6'2/260, he would seem to be a better fit as an edge rusher in a 3-4 defense. Vikings pass rushers Ray Edwards and Brian Robison are due to hit free agency this offseason.
