When the Philadelphia Eagles drafted Josh Huff in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft, the longtime Philly faithful were excited to see what the former Oregon star could do in a different shade of green.
Unfortunately, we already know what the explosive youngster can do, because Huff's Eagles career has come to a premature end.
The wide receiver was arrested earlier this week for speeding and was found by police with weed and a firearm in his possession. He was later cut by the organisation that drafted him. Today, the young free agent has apologised.
"First, I want to apologize to Mr. Lurie and his family, my coaches and teammates, and all Eagles fans,” Huff said in a statement.
“I’m sorry that any action by me brought negative light to this organization. I want to thank the Lurie family, Howie, this community and the entire Eagles organization for the opportunity I’ve had for the past 3 years."
Huff went on to add that he knows he has let down so many people with the events of this week, and that he can only hope to improve in the future and make changes that will be to the benefit of that.
"Most important, I want to let the fans and community as a whole know that I understand the responsibility I have as a professional athlete, and I will take all measures necessary to correct mistakes I have made," he added.
The former PAC-12 Champion passed through waivers unclaimed and will now face additional punishment from the league. This isn't how Huff was expecting his 2016 to go at all.
