Eagles agree to terms with former Jets pass-rush demon Bryce Huff

The Philadelphia Eagles are redefining their defense to a degree under new coordinator Vic Fangio, and they got a major piece in free agency when they agreed to terms with ex-New York Jets edge-rusher Bryce Huff.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Huff makes a bit of history with his upcoming contract.

Through his first three seasons with the Jets, Huff was not a top-tier consideration, though his four sacks and 36 total pressures in just 173 pass-rushing snaps in 2022 was a bit of a harbinger. But 2023 was unexpected to say the least; Huff totaled 10 sacks and 67 total pressures on just 334 pass-rushing snaps.

So, there shouldn’t really be a concern about Huff being any kind of one-year wonder; he just had more opportunities to demolish opposing blockers in 2023. More likely than not, is specific top-five pass-rush win rate will continue. If that’s the case, expect to hear his name more often when we’re talking about the best edge-rushers in the league.
