The Cowboys and likely free agent Michael Huff look like a perfect match.
Jerry Jones loves to overpay inconsistent safeties, and Huff grew up in Irving before playing at University of Texas.
“That’s home, but you never know what’s going to happen,” Huff told Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at Texas’ Pro Day. “I’ve got to want to go there, but they’ve got to want me. There are a bunch of things that go into the process.”
Huff is a talented player, but his performance in Oakland has been up and down throughout his career. He’s coming off his best season at the right time and wants to play for a winner again.
“That’s the only thing,” Huff said. “Being here [at Texas], you get spoiled. You win all the time here and then you go there and have some tough years. Getting that Super Bowl ring is something they can never take away from you, like they can’t take away the national championship ring. That’s the next step, and I look forward to it.”
The Raiders already spent big money on Stanford Routt, and we expect them to make an effort to bring Huff back.
