Baltimore Ravens Scoop Up Safety Michael Huff
Right when everything was looking grim according to a lot of people in the national media, the Baltimore Ravens brush off the loss of future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed with a three year deal worth $6 million for former Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff.
Huff, 30, played his previous seven seasons in Oakland while coming off arguably his best season in 2012, being able to play corner and safety which will be a great asset to Baltimore’s already versatile defense that ranked 17th in the NFL last season. The Ravens are known these days to be a primary 3-4 defense, but they can also switch on occasions to a 4-3. Huff recorded 71 tackles, 15 passes defensed (career high) and two interceptions on a 18th ranked defense in 2012.
What this means going forward for the Ravens is they can now turn their attention to the offensive side of the ball with the latest additions of outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, defensive ends Marcus Spears and Chris Canty. These changes on the defenses front is more than just a money issue, it is a fresh start to win with different players because they feel that it is unwise to keep the same core of players together that helped them win Super Bowl 47.
Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome made it a point during a February press conference to upgrade the middle of the defense and they are not done yet. The NFL Draft is still about a month away and the Ravens are still looking to fill the void of Ray Lewis.
