Eagles signed No. 86 overall pick WR Josh Huff to a four-year contract

The Draft wasn’t even a week ago, and teams are beginning to sign their players. That includes the Philadelphia Eagles who signed former Oregon Ducks wide receiver Josh Huff to a four-year contract on Tuesday. Details of the deal outside of that weren’t immediately made available.

Huff was a logical pick for the Eagles, having played for head coach Chip Kelly when he was still in collegiate football. Huff is familiar with Kelly’s system, and Kelly is familiar with Huff’s skill-set.

Huff’s main role will be in the slot replacing Jason Avant, who signed with the Carolina Panthers. Avant caught 38 passes and was targeted 76 times last season, he compiled 447 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Huff made 36 starts for the Ducks, finishing his career with 144 catches for 2,366 yards and 24 touchdowns.
