Huff was waived by the Buccaneers Saturday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Huff, who joined the team at the start of camp, impressed in special teams, but failed to make enough of an impression in the defensive backfield. If he does not make the team's practice squad he will be forced to look for a new opportunity.
Huff will likely have to prove himself worthy if he plans on sticking around for the long term, but it's something he's certainly capable of doing. Entering his fourth season with a third team, the 25-year-old comes into 2017 having recorded 36 tackles across 41 career games. His experience could factor into his fate with the team, but it won't be the only thing that impacts whether or not he'll stick around.
Huff was waived by the Chiefs on Thursday.
Huff was waived after the team brought in fellow safety Steven Terrell earlier in the day. Huff, only 24, signed a contract with the Chiefs back in March but will now look to sign on with another team ahead of training camp in hopes of making a 53-man roster.
Huff signed a contract with the Chiefs on Thursday, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
The Ravens rescinded their tender on Huff earlier in the week, which officially made the 24-year-old an unrestricted free agent. Huff was primarily a member of Baltimore's special teams units in 2016 and tallied three total tackles. He figures to slot into a similar role in Kansas City given the Chiefs' depth in the secondary.
The Ravens withdrew Huff's free-agent tender Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Huff will consequently become an unrestricted free agent. The fourth-year pro is coming off a career-low three total tackles in 2016 but could find a job with a team in need of help on special teams.
