Street Talk Ravens agree in principle with Huff

Posted in Street Talk

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed in principle to a three-year deal with seven-year veteran S Michael Huff, general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome announced Wednesday.

Huff, 29, has spent his entire career with the Oakland Raiders after being selected in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Seeing action in 108 career games (93 starts), Huff has posted 453 tackles (370 solo), 11 interceptions (75 return yards) and 57 passes defensed. The 6-foot, 211-pounder has also added 5.5 sacks (-24.5 yards), four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery during his career.

During the 2012 campaign, Huff started all 16 games, including 14 at cornerback and two at free safety due to early season injuries. He played 945 snaps on defense, posting 71 tackles (46 solo), two interceptions and a career-high 15 passes defensed.

Drafted out of the University of Texas, in 2005 Huff became the first player in school history to win the Jim Thorpe Award, an honor given to the nation’s top defensive back. That season, he helped the Longhorns win the National Championship.

I couldn't agree more! Our defense will be better than last years 17th ranking. We have gotten faster and younger. Ozzie is the best- hands down!

Ossie never did forsake the Ravens. WE now have a much better defense than if we had returned everyone departed. I AM EXCITED !!

Ozzie Newsome best GM in the business....quietly goes about his business. Making good sound acquisitions. Let other teams over bid on departed Ravens(Kruger, Ellerbe, Williams, Reed). We will get another 4 comp picks in next year draft keep adding quality depth via the draft.

I think the fact that we're signing cut players, and therefore hanging on to compensatory picks for next year, might be my favorite thing about all these moves. Unfortunately Greg Jennings, Jake Long & Mike Wallace all signed larger contracts than former Ravens, so a 3rd rounder may not happen (unless former Ravens have a much better year). But, three 4th rounders isn't out of the question.

I think those 2 signings got overshadowed by Dumerville. They are solid pickups.

Say "No!" to Te'o, but I am stoked for the rest of the lineup, pre-draft. Christian Thompson, too!!
