Broncos sign DE Aaron Hunt

The Denver Broncos have signed free-agent defensive end Aaron Hunt and allocated him to play in the upcoming season of NFL Europe.

Hunt, 6-2, 265 pounds, entered the NFL in 2003 as the Broncos' sixth-round pick (194th overall) out of Texas Tech. After being waived during training camp, he spent the final three weeks of the season on Arizona's practice squad. Out of football in 2004, Hunt spent training camp with Miami before being waived in the final cutdown. The Broncos allocated Hunt to NFL Europe and he will play for the Hamburg Sea Devils.

A four-year letterman at Texas Tech, Hunt recorded 192 tackles (121 solo), 25 sacks (-150 yards), eight passes defensed, seven forced fumbles and scored two touchdowns. In the first game of Hunt's senior season, he recorded three sacks and became the Red Raiders' all-time leader in sacks, passing the mark set by former Broncos defensive tackle Montae Reagor.

In addition, he set the Big 12 record for career sacks. Hunt graduated in May 2002 with a degree in communications. Aaron Hunt was born on June 19, 1980 in Denison, Texas.
