Huff, 25, 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.

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.

Golson, 23, was taken in the second round by the Steelers in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was in the second year of his four-year, $4.001 million rookie contract when the Steelers cut him loose in October of last year.

Golson underwent surgery back in August and was expected to miss four months with a Lisfranc injury. He also missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury.

The Buccaneers signed Golson to their practice squad a few weeks ago before just recently cutting him loose.

During his four-year college career at Ole Miss, Golson recorded 130 total tackles, six tackles for loss, 0.5 sack, 16 interceptions, 11 pass defenses, and scored one defensive touchdown.

Morris, 25, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as a priority undrafted free agent out of Miami back in May of 2014. He was unable to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season but was later signed to the Jaguars’ practice squad.

The Eagles claimed him off of waivers a few days later but he would later finish out the year with the Colts. Morris returned to Indianapolis this past January on a future/reserve contract but was once again waived coming out of the preseason.

Morris has yet to appear in an NFL game.
