Hunt topped Jermelle Cudjo for the Lions' final spot along the defensive line, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cudjo outperformed Hunt in preseason action, tallying seven tackles and two sacks as compared to five tackles and one sack for Hunt, but the Lions opted to hold onto five defensive ends an four defensive tackles as opposed to vice versa. The 2010 CFL sacks leader will likely see the bulk of his snaps on special teams as he sits behind Ziggy Ansah, Jason Jones, Devin Taylor and Darryl Tapp on the depth chart.

Hunt is looking to secure a roster spot, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hunt led the CFL in sacks in 2010 and brought the quarterback down three times in 2011 and 2012 with the Eagles. After tearing his ACL in 2013 and sitting out the season in 2014, Hunt finds himself in the defensive line mix for a Lions team looking to reinvent its pass rush and has reportedly impressed. With towering athletes Ziggy Ansah, Jason Jones and Devin Taylor and the veteran Darryl Tapp all likely to make the team, Hunt's chances will likely hinge on whether Detroit decides to carry four or five defensive ends. If they go with five, Hunt will duke it out with Larry Webster for the last spot.

Updating a previous item, DE Phillip Hunt was not among the Eagles' final cuts this weekend.

A Saturday report claimed Hunt was waived, but he played his way onto the roster with three preseason sacks. Hunt will open the season competing for nickel rusher snaps with Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp behind starting RE Trent Cole and LE Jason Babin. Hunt looks like the Eagles' fifth end at the moment.

Eagles waived DE Phillip Hunt and DL Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.

Te'o-Neshiem made no noise as a 2010 third-round pick after being given an opportunity to play inside on nickel downs. Hunt racked up three sacks this preseason. It's pretty surprising that the Eagles didn't believe that was enough.
