Saints sign wide receiver Josh Huff

The Saints have made their signing of wide receiver Josh Huff to a reserve/future deal official, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Huff has not played since 2016. He worked out for several teams, including the Saints, after the Bucs cut him in the final roster cutdown in September.

The Eagles made him a third-round pick in 2014. He has played 37 career games, making 51 catches for 523 yards and four touchdowns. He played three games with the Bucs in 2016.

According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, the contracts were denied because the Saints already had a full 90-man roster and the signings would have put the team over the roster limit.

The Saints had 53 players on their active roster at the end of the season, 20 players on injured reserve, two more on PUP/NFI lists and had signed 15 players to reserve/future contracts. New Orleans can resubmit the contracts once sufficient space has been cleared on the roster for the addition of Huff and Elliott.

Saints signings of Josh Huff, Jayrone Elliott disapproved by NFL – ProFootballTalk

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Re: Saints sign wide receiver Josh Huff

If it's a smoke screen and their intent is to alert other teams it'd be genius to manipulate the draft.That's all I can come up with... I would have to agree with Chris that they had to know that wasnt allowed..I hope
