  Lions | Phillip Hunt to sign    Thu Feb 26, 04:02 PM

Free-agent DE Phillip Hunt (Eagles) will sign with the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: He's a longshot, but one the Lions felt was worth taking. Hunt was with the Eagles in Philadelphia when current Lions defensive line coach Jim Washburn was there. Hunt has not played in two seasons. He injured his ACL in 2013 and missed the entire year. Last season, the Colts took a shot on him but he was cut from the team before Week 1.

  Eagles | Brandon Graham looked noticeably lighter    Tue Jun 26, 10:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles DL Brandon Graham looked noticeably lighter during the team's mandatory minicamp. Last season he showed up to training camp out of shape. Graham will be trying to hold off charges from DLs Vinny Curry and Phillip Hunt for a prominent role.

Footballguys view: Good sign for Graham here. The Eagles have been waiting for Graham to play up to his potential as a pass rusher, but injuries and inconsistencies have prevented the former first-round pick from doing that. He'll work as a situational pass rusher in the rotation at DE for the Eagles in 2012.

  Browns | Sign 11 undrafted free agents    Fri May 1, 03:51 PM

Zac Jackson, of ClevelandBrowns.com, reports the Cleveland Browns have signed undrafted free-agent TE Mike Massey (Michigan), DL Adam Hoppel (Cincinnati), OL Branndon Braxton (Oklahoma), FS Corey Boudreaux (San Diego State), CB Antonio X. Smith (Bowling Green), FS Jason Venson (Central Florida), S Nate Ness (Arizona), LB Marcus Benard (Jackson State), LB Jonathan Foster (Central State), LB Phillip Hunt (Houston) and WR Brent Casteel (Utah). Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Phillip Hunt is another non-combine invite that could end up making waves in the NFL. He's considered too short to play DE and not athletic enough to play LB in the pros, but he had great career production (34.5 sacks) in Conference USA. He can rip underneath blockers and can leverage the edge. He is a sound tackler, and does a good job of diagnosing the play as it unfolds.
