Matthews, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2012. He spent four years in Miami before signing a three-year, $15 million contract with the Titans in 2016.

Matthews was set to make a base salary of $5 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to a new one-year extension last month worth a base value of $7.75M for the 2019 season. The Titans elected to cut him loose shortly after he requested his release from the team.

In 2018, Matthews has appeared in three games and caught three passes for 11 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Huff, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2014. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2,820,944 contract when the Eagles cut him loose last year.

The Buccaneers would later sign him to their practice squad after he cleared waivers and eventually call him towards the end of the 2016 season. Unfortunately, the Bucs cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

The Saints signed Huff to a futures contract during the summer only to release him a month later.

In 2016, Huff appeared in 10 games and caught 16 passes for 113 yards receiving and a touchdown to go along with four rushing attempts for 15  yards. He has also totaled 324 kick return yards and a touchdown on special teams.
