Well, former Oakland Raider Michael Huff didn’t even bother with the Green Bay Packers – as we expected as he visited and signed with the Baltimore Ravens today.
Huff, who was cut by the Raiders in a salary cap money-saving move last week, visited the Cowboys yesterday, left and then said he had the Packers and Ravens on his radar as teams to visit.
Well, he didn’t get out of Baltimore without a contract, bypassing the Packers completely.
Clearly, the Packers didn’t care much otherwise they would have pursued the 30-year-old safety with more zeal. As I wrote yesterday, the Packers were better off shying away from Huff, who signed a three-year deal with the Ravens – a team that just keeps on adding free agents.
The Packers, who cut their own high-priced defensive back – Charles Woodson – last month probably didn’t have much interest in Huff and in my humble opinion should be focusing on the wealth of talent that’s available through the Draft next month.
It’s also not surprising that the Packers didn’t pursue Huff because of their complete inactivity in the free agent signing period so far this month. The only free agent on the market to which the Packers have been linked is Ahmad Bradshaw, the former New York Giant running back who was scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers.
No word on whether Bradshaw would visit the Packers has come over the wires …
And I’m not holding my breath on that one either.
So, how many days until the draft?
