Eagles Release WR Josh Huff

The Eagles announced that they have released wide receiver Josh HuffJosh Huff (vertical)

Yesterday, coach Doug Pederson indicated that Huff was likely to play on Sunday against the Giants. However, the team has decided to cut ties with the Oregon product instead. After Huff was found with a gun that he was not licensed to carry in New Jersey along with six hollow point bullets, the Eagles have reached the logical conclusion on the matter.

Although he’s a talented player, Huff has not performed exceptionally well since entering the league as a third-round choice in 2014. Even as the Eagles’ receiving corps struggled this season, Huff found himself a distant third on the WR depth chart behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor.

Huff’s release should open the door for Dorial Green-Beckham to have an increased role on offense. It also seems likely that Bryce Treggs, now the de facto No. 4 WR in Philadelphia, will be active on Sunday. Running back Wendell Smallwood previously split kick return duties with Huff, but he will probably be the sole kick returner starting this weekend.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman is scheduled to address reporters shortly and he is expected to make a statement regarding Huff’s release.

    Former Eagle and Oregon product? Wouldn’t be surprised if Chip Kelly pushes the 49ers to sign him.

    I think it is funny he got pulled over speeding on the Walt Whitman bridge. 63mph is normal for about 80% of the drivers on that bridge.

      When can you follow find the Walt Whitman that devoid of traffic?

  6. I think the eagles jumped the gun too soon on Josh Huff this will come back to haunt the eagles in the long run. I see him getting cleared and picked up by a good team who he come back with and be the dagger that defeat philly. I sure hope it happens

      That’s ok, we don’t need people like this on this team. Dumb and selfish is a bad combination, add in sub-par WR and he’s lucky to have still been here to pull this dumb stunt.
