The Philadelphia Eagles are making more moves on Monday ahead of free agency, and their latest signing just made NFL history.

Per reports from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Eagles are signing New York Jets defensive end Bryce Huff to a three-year, $51 million deal. Once he officially signs, the deal will give Huff the highest-paid non-quarterback contract for an undrafted player in NFL history.

"Jets free-agent DE Bryce Huff is signing a three-year, $51.1 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles once free agency opens, per sources. The deal will make Huff the highest-paid non-QB undrafted free agent in NFL history, per sources," Schefter tweeted.

The Eagles already had some reported interest in Huff, which was brought up after reports that Philly would begin fielding trade offers for defensive end Josh Sweat.

Already without the recently-retired Fletcher Cox, the Eagles defensive line will look much different next season if both Sweat and Haason Reddick are traded this offseason.

Huff, who went undrafted out of Memphis in 2020, played in 54 games across four seasons with the Jets. He posted 65 total tackles and 17.5 sacks, 10 of which came this past season.

He'll now look to build upon his career year while also showing the Eagles he's worth the major pay day.
