Huff finished the 2023 season with 10.0 sacks among his 29 tackles (19 solo). He also had one pass defensed.
Huff struggled to earn consistent playing time in his first three NFL seasons due to his deficiencies defending the run, but he was among the league leaders in pass rush win rate. The 25-year-old edge rusher saw the field more frequently in 2023 -- playing between 37 and 54 percent of snaps in each of the final 14 games -- and continued to get to the quarterback at an elite rate. Huff's pass rushing prowess is likely to earn him a substantial raise as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Huff had two solo tackles, including one sack, in Sunday's 30-0 loss to the Dolphins.
Huff has eight sacks in his last 10 games. The standout pass rusher continues to play in a rotational role, as Huff's 56 percent snap share in Sunday's loss marked a new season high.
Huff recorded two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Texans.
Huff provided one of the five sacks in a dominant performance from New York's defense. He's up to seven sacks in what has been a breakout fourth NFL season, with that entire total coming over the past nine games.
Huff had 1.5 sacks among his three tackles (one solo) in Monday's 27-6 loss to the Chargers.
The standout pass rusher finished with four quarterback hits Monday while raising his season sack total to 5.0 through eight games. All of Huff's sacks have come in the last four games, as he's earned a larger role in New York's defensive end rotation with his consistent ability to get to the quarterback.
Huff recorded three tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 20-14 win over the Eagles.
Huff is the NFL's leader in pressure rate going back to last season, but his limitations defending the run have left him to a situational role. While he's still far from an every down player, Huff finally exceeded 40 percent of defensive snaps in the last two games with 45 percent in Week 5 and 50 percent in Sunday's win. He's made the most of those opportunities with 2.5 sacks in the two-game span, so Huff's expanded role could be here to stay after the Jets' Week 7 bye.
Huff signed his one-year tender with the Jets on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Huff had been a restricted free agent but will now return to New York for the upcoming campaign. The 25-year-old logged six tackles (four solo) and 3.5 sacks while playing on both defense and special teams last year. Now that he's back in the fold the 2020 undrafted free agent should continue to provide solid pass-rushing depth this coming season.
The Jets tendered Huff at the second-round level as a restricted free agent Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
The 2020 undrafted free agent out of Memphis recorded 3.5 sacks on just 191 defensive snaps last season and is in line for an expanded pass-rushing role in 2023. He has 7.5 sacks on 823 career snaps.
