The 2014 NFL Draft was over the weekend and the Philadelphia Eagles have wasted no time in getting their second Wide Receiver target in the draft under contract. Former Oregon Ducks Wide Receiver Josh Huff signed a four year contract with Philadelphia on Tuesday. Huff was selected in the third round as the 86th pick on Saturday. The former Duck officially will be ready for this weekend’s minicamp and is the first of seven drafted selections for Philadelphia.
In the second round Philly chose Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt. Former Oregon Coach Chip Kelly also selected Defensive End Taylor Hart as the first pick in the fifth round. With Huff and Matthews Kelly brings a new look to the Offense in the City of Brotherly Love that will hopefully make fans forget about the disgruntled DeSean Jackson who packed his bags for the Washington Redskins in the offseason.
According to CSNPhilly.com, per rules of the CBA, Huff will make $420,000 this season in base salary.
In his final season with Oregon, Huff made not only the play of the year towards the close of the Civil War against Oregon State, but also sixty one passes for eight hundred ninety one yards. He was also a key component of the kick return game returning eleven kickoffs for two hundred and fifty two yards.
