Huff’s Journey From Baltimore to Denver to the Super Bowl

Michael Huff Ravens

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. J. – Michael Huff performed so badly at safety for the Ravens in 2013, he was benched after one game, and only lasted two months before being cut. Yet on Tuesday, Huff found himself at Super Bowl Media Day, soaking up the atmosphere with his Broncos’ teammates.

It has been strange journey to the big game for Huff. But he blames himself for his brief stay with the Ravens, and feels blessed to land with a Super Bowl team.

“This isn’t the way I’d draw up getting to the Super Bowl, but I’ll take it,” Huff said. “I didn’t play well enough. I didn’t live up to my end of the bargain. When they cut me, I understood. They needed some guys on special teams, and I wasn’t getting the job done.”

Ironically, Huff’s lone start for the Ravens came against the Broncos. Peyton Manning lit up the Ravens for seven touchdowns passes during a 49-27 victory to start the season. The entire Ravens secondary played poorly, but Huff missed tackles that led to several big plays. Huff still can’t figure out why he struggled in Baltimore, because he liked the defensive system and his teammates.

“I was hard on myself, because I knew I wasn’t playing well,” Huff said. “Now I end up here. The guy throws seven touchdown passes against my team, and now I’m on his team.
