Don’t expect the Raiders to bid on Michael Huff

It’s worth remembering that Warren Sapp’s scathing criticism of safety Michael Huff comes from seeing the guy in practice in 2006-2007. A lot has changed since then, with Huff playing his best ball in 2010.

So does that mean the Raiders will try to keep Huff?

That’s doubtful, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

McDonald writes that Huff’s fate was “likely sealed” when he gave up a 48-yard touchdown to Jaguars receiver Jason Hill last December. The Raiders have tried to trade Huff before and they re-signed safety Hiram Eugene Huff before the lockout.

“Now that Huff has had two decent years, he could get an offer which far outweighs his true value,” McDonald writes.

Bingo. Look, the Raiders love to pay big money to defensive players with great measurables like Huff. The fact the team seems relatively uninterested in keeping him should be a red flag to other teams out there.
