I think the dismissal of Josh Huff by Howie Roseman, Doug Pederson, and company will send a signal to the rest of the team that this type of behavior will no longer be tolerated. Somebody had to be the example and Huff unfortunately was chosen to be the guy. He wasn’t helped by the run-ins with the law by linebacker Nigel Bradham.
Despite the fact that I feel bad for Huff, I think it was the right decision for the Eagles football team.
The Birds brass has let the rest of the roster know that they have a responsibility to maintain a certain level of discipline both on the field and off of it. I think they may have consulted with some lawyers and been told that Huff might be looking at some jail time. I could see them not wanting a player on the team who is going to have to spend some time behind bars.
The Eagles management must have come to the conclusion that enough was enough. If they had not done something, players would continue to break the law or make foolish decisions off the field with the belief that there would be no consequences to their actions.
Huff will be picked up by another team because he does have the talent to contribute to a football team, but he will remember the foolish mistake.
