Philadelphia Eagles

He was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft with the 86th overall pick, reuniting Huff with former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly. On May 13, he signed a four-year deal with the team.

In 2014, Huff had a 107-yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans, the longest play in Eagles history. While Huff saw limited action as a wide receiver in 2014, his play time began to increase in 2015. In week five against the New Orleans Saints he caught his first touchdown from Sam Bradford. Against the Miami Dolphins he caught another touchdown but the Eagles were not able to win the game, eventually losing 20-19. The following week Huff caught another touchdown pass, this time from Mark Sanchez (filling in for an injured Bradford), but the Eagles lost 45-17. In 2015, after only catching 8 passes for 24 yards in his first 5 games, Huff had his best game of the young season in a win against the undefeated Minnesota Vikings, catching all 4 of his targets for 39 yards and returning a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. Huff followed this up with only 1 catch for 9 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, but also had a 53 yard return.

On November 1, 2016, Huff was arrested with marijuana and a firearm in his vehicle. Despite statements by coach Doug Pederson that Huff would still play the following week,[6] Huff was released by the Eagles on November 3.[7]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Huff was signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' practice squad on November 7, 2016.[8]
