Huff and the Eagles agreed to terms so quickly because now that contracts are slotted, there isn't much negotiation room. Per OverTheCap, as the 86th pick, Huff's contract is expected to total $2.8M.
This deal ensures that Huff will definitely be ready in time for Eagles training camp, which begins in late July. The Eagles have until then to get the rest of their six draft picks under contract in order for them to be eligible for practice.
One down, six to go.
