Broncos signed S Michael Huff.
Huff's three-year, $6 million deal with the Ravens was considered a nice bargain for the defending Super Bowl champs, but he struggled to get on the field in Baltimore. When he did, he performed poorly. Huff was waived in October. He'll be mere depth in Denver. Huff's signing is an indication Rahim Moore (leg) is headed to injured reserve. For now, Mike Adams is stepping in at free safety. Perhaps Huff will eventually push him. Tue, Nov 19, 2013 02:55:00 PM

Date:

The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson reports the Broncos are expected to sign free agent S Michael Huff.

Per Wilson, the Broncos worked out Huff, Tyler Sash and John Boyett on Tuesday. It's a sign FS Rahim Moore (leg) will be placed on injured reserve. Cut by the Ravens last month, Huff struggled mightily in 97 snaps in Baltimore, and wouldn't be a candidate to start in Denver.

Free agent S Michael Huff is working out for the Cowboys Tuesday.

Huff was released by the Ravens in Week 8 and visited with the Bengals earlier this month. With J.J. Wilcox (knee) injured, he could be an upgrade over struggling fill-in SS Jeff Heath if signed. The Cowboys are allowing an NFL worst 313 passing yards per game.

Free agent S Michael Huff worked out for the Bengals.

Huff was part of the workout group that included DT Christo Bilukidi, who was signed by the Bengals Monday to take the roster spot of Geno Atkins (torn ACL, injured reserve). Huff was cut by the Ravens last Wednesday.

Ravens waived FS Michael Huff and DT Marcus Spears.

Billed as high-quality additions to the Ravens defense, both veterans fizzled out badly. Huff hasn't played a defensive snap since Week 4 and was a liability on special teams. Spears was getting outplayed by third-round rookie Brandon Williams. Signed to a three-year, $6 million deal with a $1.5 million signing bonus, Huff finishes his time in Baltimore with six tackles. Even brilliant GM Ozzie Newsome gets egg on his face sometimes.

Ravens signed FS Michael Huff to a three-year, $6 million contract.

The highly athletic Huff was forced to play corner for the talent-depraved Raiders last season, but he'll replace Ed Reed at free safety with the Ravens. It's yet another shrewd signing from GM Ozzie Newsome as he rebuilds his defense. Huff is five years younger than Reed, has missed just four games in his seven-year career and his average annual salary is $3M cheaper. Thanks in large part to this week's additions of Huff and Elvis Dumervil, the Ravens are a good bet to improve -- likely significantly -- on last year's 17th-ranked defense.

Free agent DB Michael Huff has scheduled a visit with the Packers.

Huff had a "nice visit" in Dallas, but is going forward with planned trips to the Ravens and Green Bay. Per ESPN Dallas, Huff isn't sure he can wait for the Cowboys to "get their salary-cap situation straight." It sounds like he'll have a new home by the end of the week.

Free agent DB Michael Huff had a "nice visit" with the Cowboys, but is unsure if he can wait for them to "get their salary-cap situation straight."

That would imply Huff has another offer on the table. The Cowboys currently have little more than $100,000 in cap room, but are expected to clear more space in the coming days. Huff will meet with the Ravens this week, and has been in touch with the Packers and Titans.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 02:38:00 PM

Free agent DB Michael Huff is still scheduled to visit the Ravens.

Huff is meeting with the Cowboys on Monday, but is expected to escape without a contract because of their salary-cap situation. He'll visit Baltimore "later this week." Huff would be part of the Ravens' Ed Reed replacement plan.
Mon, Mar 25, 2013 09:47:00 AM

The Cowboys are hosting free agent DB Michael Huff for a visit on Monday.

Huff joins LB Justin Durant and S Will Allen in checking out North Texas on Monday. The Cowboys are looking at Huff as a safety. A signing couldn't be made until Big D reaches a long-term agreement with Tony Romo or Anthony Spencer, as it has just $102,000 in cap space at the moment.
Mon, Mar 25, 2013 08:17:00 AM

The Ravens are expected to meet with free agent DB Michael Huff "within the next five days."

The Ravens, Packers, Cowboys and Titans have all reportedly "reached out" to Huff since his March 12 release, but Baltimore would be his first known visit. Huff would have a real chance to start at safety for the Ravens after injuries forced him to make 14 appearances at cornerback for the Raiders last season.
Tue, Mar 19, 2013 08:50:00 PM

The Ravens, Packers, Cowboys, and Titans have reportedly all reached out to free agent DB Michael Huff since his March 12 release.

Baltimore may be particularly interested in Huff; the Ravens currently have no viable Week 1 starting safeties on their roster and GM Ozzie Newsome loved Huff coming out of Texas in 2006. Huff turned 30 years old earlier this month.
Mon, Mar 18, 2013 05:39:00 PM

Raiders released DB Michael Huff.

The versatile defensive back was owed $4 million in base salary, plus a $4 million roster bonus. Parked at corner last season, he was shifting back to safety in 2013. Corners make more money, but we'd assume Huff will shop himself as a safety, with his versatility being a plus. He's one of the league's better pure cover men in center field. Meanwhile, Oakland is going to be historically bad in 2013.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 07:59:00 PM

Raiders coach Dennis Allen confirmed that Michael Huff will stay at safety moving forward.

Huff was forced to make fourteen 2012 starts at cornerback due to Oakland's shortage at the position, but he's moving back to free safety for 2013. "At the end of the day, his natural fit is at safety," opined Allen. "But I think he’ll do anything we need him to do to give us a chance to be successful."

Raiders DBs Michael Huff (wrist) and Mike Mitchell (neck) left Thursday night's game against the Broncos in the first half.

Huff, who has been playing mainly cornerback this season, was thought to have been benched for ineffectiveness, but that's not the case apparently. Mitchell was in the game for SS Tyvon Branch, who left with an ankle injury. Oakland possesses the most banged-up secondary in the league.
