Phillip Hunt is gaining momentum from NFL teams. The Philadelphia Eagles are the latest team to express an interest in the Canadian Football League pass rusher.
The Minnesota Vikings and the Houston Texans have already expressed an interest in him.
NFL teams only have four more days to sign Canadian Football League players. The window closes on February 15th.
Hunt has recorded 19 sacks over the past two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He had 16 sacks this past season.
Wherever he signs, he will attempt to have the same success like Cameron Wake. The 23-year-old could be used as a situational pass rusher, much like Wake, to start out if he signs with an NFL team.
Wake signed with the Miami Dolphins for the 2009 season. In the last two seasons, he has appeared in 30 games with 17 starts.
He also has 67 tackles, including 27 tackles for a loss, and 35 quarterback hits. He has 19.5 sacks with four forced fumbles and five pass deflections.
Hunt played for the Houston Cougars from 2005 through 2008. In his collegiate career, he had 177 tackles, including 49.5 tackles for a loss, with 33.5 sacks.
Hunt also had one interception, five forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and eight pass deflections.
