If Huff, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, stays within the parameters of the program, the charges will be dismissed. If Huff does not, he can still face charges and a jail sentence.

On April 4, Huff was accepted into the program, which lasts six months.

Huff, 25, was arrested on Nov. 1 while speeding on the Walt Whitman Bridge. Police found a gun, loaded magazine, under 50 grams of marijuana and hollow-point bullets. Two days later on Nov. 3, Huff was released by the Eagles.

The Buccaneers added Huff to their practice squad on Nov. 7 and promoted him to the 53-man roster in Decemeber ahead of Week 14. Huff appeared in three of Tampa Bay's final four games, making three catches for 41 yards.

Huff was selected by the Eagles in the third round of the 2014 draft and spent parts of three seasons in Philadelphia.
