The Eagles’ wide receiver woes continue to get worse.
Wide receiver and kick returner Josh Huff, who has been gaining favor as a key contributor in recent weeks, was pulled over for allegedly speeding at 63 miles per hour on the Walt Whitman Bridge, which has a 45 mile-per-hour speed limit, according to several sources.
He had a gun and weed in his possession, police said.
Huff is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, CSNPhilly.com reported. He is said to have a permit to carry the firearm only in Texas.
The 25-year-old, drafted by Chip Kelly a few seasons ago, is Philly’s fourth wide receiver and had a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown this year.
“We are aware of the incident today involving Josh Huff,” the Eagles said in a news release. “At this point, we are gathering more information.”
Huff is the third Eagles wideout to have legal troubles. During the offseason, Nelson Agholor was investigated for an incident with a woman at a Philly night club. Dorial Green-Beckham also had off-the-field problems during his time in Tennessee before signing with Philadelphia.
In addition, linebacker Nigel Bradham had his own legal problems twice this season and offseason resulting from incidents in Miami.
