Today, the Eagles released Josh Huff, two days after he was arrested for speeding over the Walt Whitman bridge while in possession of marijuana, a gun not licensed for carry in New Jersey, and hollow point bullets.
Howie Roseman spoke Thursday afternoon, explaining why the organization made the decision to release the third-year wideout.
Here’s an excerpt:
Why was it the right decision? — For us, we just felt based on the circumstances and the facts involved, that it was the right thing to do for our football team.
Who made the decision? -- We met, Jeffrey [Lurie], Don [Smolenski], myself, and coach [Doug Pederson], and we made this decision together.
Did Huff’s comments on Wednesday factor in? — No. This situation was about gathering all the information, and trying to do what we felt was right for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Did anything new become available between when Doug talked yesterday and the move? — We spent a lot of time over the last 48 hours just making sure that we had the information, and that we weren’t rushing to judgement. We have a process in place for these sorts of things that could lead us to what we think is the right decision.
Now, I want to know what the fans think. Were the Eagles right to release him? Do you take umbrage with the decision to release Huff with Nigel Bradham still on the team?
