The Oregon product dressed for ten games during the 2019 season, making 37 catches for 491 yards and one touchdown. He also caught six passes for 66 yards in the West Division Semi-Final.

“Once he was able to get on the field, Josh established himself as a reliable and explosive player,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. “I look forward to seeing what he can accomplish over a full season.”

“The 2019 season ended sour for a lot of us because we know we got outplayed in the Western Semi-Final but I’m excited to see how good we can really be with a full and healthy roster,” said Huff. “Looking forward to an exciting year.”

The five-foot-eleven, 200-pound receiver was a third-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014. He played with the team for three seasons, catching 44 receptions for 425 yards and four touchdowns.

Huff has also been a member of the Tamps Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and the Arizona Hotshots.

The native of Houston, Texas will look to take on a larger role in the Stampeders’ receiving corps come 2021, his second season in the CFL.

Other recent re-signings in Calgary include defensive end Folarin Orimolade, defensive back Richard Leonard, and receiver Aaron Peck.
