Albert Huggins has a new NFL home, according to an ESPN report.
Huggins was recently waived by the Philadelphia Eagles after being signed off of the Houston Texans' practice squad. ESPN's Field Yates reported Monday that Huggins was claimed off of waivers by the New England Patriots.
Huggins signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent in April.
Huggins tallied six tackles in two games as a starter in the 2018 Playoff. He finished his Clemson career with 83 tackles, 11.5 for loss, with seven sacks, 25 QB pressures and a pass breakup in 911 snaps.
Patriots roster moves (per @FieldYates): K Kai Forbath has been waived and rookie DT Albert Huggins (Clemson) has been claimed on waivers from the Eagles. Huggins (6-3, 305) has played in 4 games this year for Philadelphia. Adds depth at big DT spot w/ Byron Cowart (head) injured— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) December 2, 2019
