Jets: Bryce Huff sets record with Eagles contract

Brian Costello of the New York Post shared the details of Huff’s contract:

“Edge rusher Bryce Huff, who led the team in sacks last season, agreed to a three-year, $51.1 million contract with the Eagles, a source confirmed,” Costello said.

“The deal pays him an average of $17 million per season and can go as high as $20,033 million per year, according to the NFL Network.”

Huff’s contract makes him the highest-paid non-QB undrafted free agent in NFL history. The 6-3 pass-rusher’s body of work warranted such a paycheck.

What Huff did to get top dollars:

The Memphis product put up a whopping 10 sacks in 2023. He received a 79.7 player grade from Pro Football Focus for his efforts during the year.

The Eagles found Huff as a viable option to strengthen their D-Line. As a unit, they racked up 43 sacks last season, which only 13 teams failed to best of equal.

The Jets now have a major void in the department. They’ll also have to replace his 21 quarterback hits in 2024.
