NFL Free Agency: Former Raiders Safety Michael Huff Signs With Ravens

The Ravens have picked their man to replace Ed Reed, and it is former Raiders safety Michael Huff.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Huff agreed to a three-year deal worth $6 million with Baltimore earlier today.

Huff met with the Ravens twice, visited the Cowboys, and had a meeting set up with the Packers.

He 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 with Oakland, so he took quite a pay cut to play in Baltimore.
