If he makes the roster, Josh Huff won’t be in uniform for the Saints’ first two contests next season. Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports that the wide receiver has been suspended two games by the NFL “for violating the league’s policies on substances for abuse and personal conduct.”
As Katzenstein details, the suspension stems from a 2016 arrest. During the incident, Huff was allegedly found carrying a handgun and a small amount of marijuana. All of the charges from the incident have since been dismissed. Huff entered a pre-trail intervention program following a conditional guilty plea, and the charges were subsequently dismissed.
The 2014 third-round pick hasn’t matched his production from his Eagles tenure. Following a 2015 campaign that saw him haul in 27 receptions for 312 yards and three touchdowns, Huff hasn’t been nearly as productive since that time. The 26-year-old had 16 receptions in 10 games with the Bucs and Eagles in 2016, and he sat out the entire 2017 campaign. He ultimately landed a futures contract with the Saints back in January.
