Bryce Huff to join Eagles on three-year deal

Bryce Huff’s time as a New York Jet is over. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Huff is expected to sign a three-year deal worth $51.1 million with the Philadelphia Eagles. The deal can also max out at about $60 million per year.

Huff cashes in on a 10-sack season in 2023 with, as Schefter noted, the largest contract ever for an undrafted non-quarterback.

The Jets declined to use the franchise tag on Huff, which would have paid Huff about $21 million for the 2024 season. However, Huff had wanted to see the field more, something that became increasingly unlikely in New York with the team hoping for a second-year jump from 2023 first-round pick Will McDonald.

In Philadelphia, Huff has a chance to lead the charge on the edge, especially if they do move on from Hassan Reddick and/or Josh Sweat.

The Jets had plenty of chances to keep Huff. The ship has now sailed and the Jets now have a big hole to fill on defense.
