Not surprisingly, Bomber defensive end Phillip Hunt is drawing interest from teams down south.
The CFL’s sack king – he had 16 in 2010 and three in seven games in 2009 -- has apparently already, or is about to, work out for the Minnesota Vikings.
And now the website Yardbarker is speculating that Hunt, along with Montreal Alouette OL Josh Bourke and receiver S.J. Green, worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. See story here.
Hunt will have to weigh any potential NFL offers vs. the guaranteed money that would come with a new deal from the Bombers. As well, the impending labour war in the NFL makes bolting down south more of a risk than ever before.
We’re also hearing that some of the contract extensions the Bombers had been working on with some of their younger talent like Chris Greaves might not be announced until the new year.
