The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with rookie draft picks, LB Stewart Bradley and RB Tony Hunt, on four-year contracts Thursday.
A third-round draft choice out of Nebraska in 2007 (87th overall), Bradley (6-3, 254) led the Cornhuskers with a career-high 76 tackles, as a senior, after missing more than half of his 2005 campaign with a torn ACL in his left knee.
A third-round draft choice out of Penn State in 2007 (90th overall), Hunt (6-1, 233) earned All-Big Ten honors for the second time after his senior season, in which he recorded career-highs in rushing yards (1,386), total touchdowns (14), rushing touchdowns (11), rushing yards per game (115.5), and attempts (277).
The 21-year-old Hunt finished his career ranked first on the school’s all-time list in attempts (654), second in rushing yards (3,320), fourth in all-purpose yards (4,119), and sixth in 100-yard rushing games (15), eight of which came in 2006.
In 45 career games, Hunt produced 28 touchdowns (25 rushing, three receiving). In addition, Hunt became only the fifth player in Penn State history to rush for over 3,000 yards in his career (3,320), and the sixth to rush for over 1,000 yards in more than one season.
