Bucs Promote WR Josh Huff

The Buccaneers announced that wide receiver Josh Huff is being promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. Huff hasn’t been in an NFL game since October when he was with the Eagles. "<strong

Huff, a third-round pick in the 2014 draft, was cut from the Eagles following an arrest for gun and marijuana possession. Soon after, the Buccaneers scooped him up and signed him to the practice squad. At first, this had the look of a low-risk, high-reward type of acquisition. As it turned out, the Buccaneers actually made a significant investment in the speedy receiver. Huff was earning $31K/week on the taxi squad and that’s good coin, particularly when considering that he was making $36/K week in Philly.

Huff’s first test with his new team will come against the Saints. When he faced New Orleans last year as a member of the Eagles, he had four catches for a career-high 78 yards and a touchdown, as Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times tweets.

      I mean he probably paid the fine/bail, he is making 31K a week, it’s not like it was a murder charge, he paid the fine avoided jail time, and walked.

      Ain’t that hard if your making 30 K a week

        He had a gun (and no permit to carry in the state) with hollow points in NJ. There is no “fine” for that.
