Ravens Agree To 3-Year Deal With Raiders Safety Michael Huff

BALTIMORE (WJZ/BALTIMORE RAVENS)—The Baltimore Ravens have agreed in principle to a three-year deal with seven-year veteran safety 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.
