Michael Huff Not Waiting Around For Cowboys, Will Visit Packers, Ravens


Former Raiders safety Michael Huff is exploring his options, planning visits to Green Bay and Baltimore.

Huff visited with the  Cowboys on Monday, and although he would love to play there, he wasn’t going to wait around for them to clear money if other teams were offering deals (via The Star Telegram) .

He already met with the Ravens last week, but apparently plans to travel there again, with a stop in Green Bay to visit the Packers.

According to the Journal Sentinel, the Packers are planning to “get Huff on the cheap knowing that he doesn’t have a lot of options.”

Citing a source, the report states that Huff’s agent may be trying to spur interest in his client.

Huff was released by the Raiders earlier this offseason.

Drafted in the first round in 2006 by Al Davis, Huff has spent his entire seven-year career in Oakland. His best season came in 2010, when he made the All-Pro team with 94 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions, and three forced fumbles.

However, injuries to other players forced the Raiders to convert him to cornerback in 2012, where he struggled. He had just 56 tackles and two interceptions in 16 games.

Huff signed a four-year, $32 million contract in 2011.
