Eagles to sign CFL DE Hunt, confirm Harbor surgery

The Eagles expect to sign defensive end Phillip Hunt, who led the Canadian Football League in sacks last season with 16. They play an 18 game season. Hunt was at the NovaCare Complex Friday taking a physical.

Hunt played at the University of Houston and has been in the CFL with Winnipeg for the past two seasons. He worked out for the Eagles, Browns and Patriots in December. At 6-feet tall and 248 pounds he fits the physical mold that the Eagles look for in pass rushers.

The team also confirmed that tight end Clay Harbor had offseason surgery for a sports hernia. The Eagles did not provide a timetable for his recovery but the rehabilitation period is usually around four to eight weeks, meaning Harbor would be ready for off-season practices, if there are any.
