Eagles Agree to 3-Year Contract With CFL Sack Leader Philip Hunt
The Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they have agreed to a three-year deal with Canadian Football League sack leader, Philip Hunt.
Hunt played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last season and topped the CFL with 16 sacks, four more than the next highest player.
In college, Hunt attended the University of Houston, where he was a teammate of Kevin Kolb.
He went undrafted after his senior year of college. He spent training camp with the Cleveland Browns but was released in August of 2009.
Hunt won’t start at defensive end next season. But he will probably receive a significant amount of playing time.
Two-time Pro Bowl end Trent Cole will obviously start. Rookie Brandon Graham suffered through a disappointing rookie season and tore his ACL in December. He will probably be ready for next season but don’t expect him to be at full strength.
Despite his age, 32-year old Juqua Parker will probably make the team again next season. He is one of six defensive ends to total at least five sacks in each of the past five seasons. He is a valuable member of the defensive line. And 26-year old Darryl Tapp recorded three sacks and recovered three fumbles in 2010. He’ll be back again.
Hunt will probably be the Eagles’ fifth defensive end next season.
