Eagles release Josh Huff following arrest

By

The Eagles have parted ways with wide receiver Josh Huff, according to Pro Football Talk, two days after Huff was arrested for DUI and carrying a gun without a permit.

Huff also was issued a summons for marijuana possession and tinted windows. When news of the arrest broke on Tuesday, the Eagles said they were in the process of “gathering more information.”

In about 48 hours, the Eagles apparently had gathered all the information they needed and cut Huff.

During those 48 hours, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said on Wednesday that he expected Huff to play Sunday against the Giants.

This makes the Eagles the latest team to deal with off-the-field problems in an awkward manner.

Huff was the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 7 when he returned a kickoff for a touchdown in a 21-10 win over the Vikings, but his highlight reel begins and ends there. He also returned a kickoff for a touchdown as a rookie in 2014, but this season he has just 13 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.
