Phillip Wayne Hunt, Jr. (born January 10, 1986) is an American football outside linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts. He was originally signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2009, and played college football for the Houston Cougars. He played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2009 to 2010, and the Philadelphia Eagles from 2011 to 2013.

Professional career[edit]

After his release from the Browns prior to the 2009 season, Hunt signed with the Winnipeg franchise of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and spent two years with the Blue Bombers. In his first season, he recorded 11 tackles and three sacks, while he led the league in sacks with 16 the following year.

After workouts for multiple NFL teams, including the Eagles and Miami Dolphins, toward the end of and after the 2010 season, Hunt signed a three-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on February 11, 2011. Hunt tore his ACL during the Eagles' first preseason game on August 9, 2013. He was placed on injured reserve on August 28, 2013, and became a free agent following the season.

On August 6, 2014, he was signed by the Indianapolis Colts.
