Phillip Hunt has made the Philadelphia Eagles.

The former Bombers defensive end, who led the CFL with 16 sacks in 2010, was not among Philadelphia's final cuts on Saturday afternoon when all NFL teams had to get down to 53 players. In fact, the Eagles released his main competition for the final defensive end spot, 2010 third-round draft pick Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.

Hunt used the CFL option window to sign with the Eagles in February and will remain Bomber property until Feb. 15, 2012.
