Josh Huff released by Eagles following arrest

According to reports, Eagles Wide Reciever Josh Huff has been released by the Philadelphia Eagles, just two days after he was arrested.

Huff was arrested following a traffic stop on the Walt Whitman Bridge on Tuesday morning.

Sources say Delaware River Port Authority Police pulled Huff over for traffic violations in his black pickup truck as he headed over the Walt Whitman bridge back to New Jersey just after 11:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. Police found marijuana and a gun in his car.

His attorney confirmed that he was charged with motor vehicle violations, including DUI, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of a 9mm handgun without a license.

The 25 year old wide receiver and kickoff returner was taken to Gloucester City Municipal Court where he was arraigned on the charges. Family members arrived and posted 10 percent of his $25,000 bail.

VP of Football Operations Howie Roseman is expected to address the media Thursday afternoon. 

Huff, an outstanding player on special teams, has two kickoff returns for touchdowns in his career, including a 98-yarder against Minnesota on Oct. 23. Huff has 13 catches for 72 yards and one touchdown.
