An arrest on charges of DUI, carrying a gun without a permit and possession of marijuana has cost Eagles receiver Josh Huff his job.
The Eagles announced today that Huff has been released, two days after he was arrested.
That comes as a bit of a surprise, given that Eagles coach Doug Pederson said after Huff was arrested that he was expecting Huff to play this weekend. But it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, as Huff hasn’t played well this season, and bad players who cause problems off the field are never safe in their jobs.
Former Eagles coach Chip Kelly was a big fan of Huff’s as his coach at Oregon and was eager to draft Huff, which the Eagles did in the third round in 2014. That means it wouldn’t be surprising to see the 49ers claim Huff on waivers.
Huff has played in seven games this season with two starts and caught 13 passes for 72 yards and one touchdown.
