The Philadelphia Soul continue to make additions to their 2016 roster. The Soul has added defensive end Will Hunt.

Hunt comes to Philadelphia after seeing action in two games with the Spokane Shock last season. In those games, he had 2.5 tackles for a loss.

He became available when the Shock decided to move down to the lower IFL.

The Charleston Southern product hopes to make a bigger impact on the Soul defense. This defense already includes Justin Lawrence, who re-signed with the team yesterday.

Last year’s group of defensive lineman included Tyron Hurst, Ted Jennings, Lawrence, Bryan Robinson, and Padric Scott.

Hunt joins the Soul defensive unit that had 26 sacks last season. Robinson, who hasn’t re-signed with the Soul yet, led the unit with 9 sacks.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Robinson waits until training camp to re-sign with the Soul, like he had done last season.

Following Robinson, Teddy Jennings and Beau Bell had five sacks each. Jennings was a late arrival to the team, as he didn’t join the team until he was released by the Montreal Allouettes of the Canadian Football League.

Jennings should have a full camp with the Soul, as he’s not on the team’s other league exempt list.

Those three combines for 19 of the 26 sacks. Scott, who left via free agency after signing with the Orlando Predators, contributed an additional three sacks. Fellow nose guard  Lawrence had 1.5 sacks, while three others combined for 2.5 sacks.

The 6-foot-4, 260-pounder saw action in 40 games in college. He had 114 tackles, 12 sacks, and four forces fumbles.

His senior season he had 34 tackles and five sacks in just seven games.
