Phillip Hunt has officially begun his quest to get back to the NFL.
The National Football Post is reporting that the Cleveland Browns worked out the all-star Bombers defensive end on Wednesday.
Hunt, who led the CFL with 16 sacks in 2010, is entering his option year and is eligible to sign with an NFL club in the new year.
Hunt has at least one other workout scheduled, and the Minnesota Vikings are believed to be one of the teams interested in his talents.
Hunt signed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent in 2009 but didn’t make the squad.
Montreal Alouettes all-star tackle Josh Bourke also reportedly worked out for the Browns.
