  2. WR Cody White
  3. OL William Dunkle
  4. OL John Leglue
  5. DL Carlos Davis

  12. DB Mark Gilbert
  13. C Ryan McCollum
  14. LB David Anenih
  15. DB Duke Dawson
  16. RB Jason Huntley
  17. WR Josh Malone

Huntley, 24, was a four-year starter at New Mexico State before being selected by the Lions in the fifth round of the 2020 draft. Huntley signed a four-year rookie deal worth $3,585,307 that includes a signing bonus of $290,307.

The Lions waived him and he was later claimed off waivers by the Eagles. He’s been on and off of the Eagles’ roster the past two years, but was waived coming out of the preseason in 2022. He caught on with the Steelers practice squad and has bounced on and off a couple of times this season. 

In 2021, Huntley appeared in one game for the Eagles and rushed for 51 yards on 13 carries (3.9 YPC) and no touchdowns.

During his four years at New Mexico State, Huntley appeared in 47 games and rushed 373 times for 2,182 yards (5.8 YPC) and 18 touchdowns. Huntley also had 134 receptions for 1,119 yards (8.4 YPC) and seven touchdowns.
