Ravens keep Huff cap hit low in 2013

After the Ravens cut both of their starting safeties, they needed to find help at the position.  They found some assistance via veteran Michael Huff, and they managed to sign him to a deal that won’t cost a lot under the cap in 2013.

Per a source with knowledge of the terms, Huff’s three-year, $6 million contract carries a cap number of $1.35 million this year.

Huff received a $1.5 million signing bonus, and he’ll earn base salaries of $850,000, $1.75 million, and $1.9 million in each of the next three seasons.  Escalators could expand the base deal in 2014 and 2015.

Of course, if the salary escalates too high, the Ravens could decide to move on.  For now, they’ll move forward with a former top-10 pick under a contract that, relatively speaking, pays peanuts.

    2 mil a year for Huff is a great deal.

    These days, you don’t get a player for peanuts unless he’s worth peanuts.

    This was a guy that I thought would fit in with the Patriots. It’s a good signing for the Blackbirds.

    Do any of you haters get how defensive football works? It don’t matter if Ed Reed is better. Our front 7 is better then anyone’s in league. With solid corner back play by Webb, Johnson, and Smith and the beasts on the line, Huff is gonna be bored out there. Plus the guy has NEVER played with NFL caliber defensive talent, which he now will. Learn the game! Idiots!

    Just another day in the office for the greatest GM in the league. You haters wish you had Oz, but you don’t. Cheers!

    Steeler fans must still be celebrating the signing of Plaxico Burress and Bruce Gradkowski.

    The Baltimore Ravens. The World Champs. The best organization in all of sport.

    The Ravens did cut Ed Reed, he was a FA.

    “Hello CitiBank, can I get my credit card limit extended to $126 million?”

  18. si1m says: Apr 1, 2013 3:30 PM

    “Mr. Crownofthehelmet, thank you for calling Citibank. Unfortunate we cannot do that, your limit is set at 90 million for breaking rules that 30 other teams were able to follow. Look on the bright side though: you don’t have to pay a greenskeeper at FedEx since theres no grass; and your QB won’t cost much in 3 years when his career is over from injury.”

    And Huff would not renegotiate with us? He is now making less then he would have to restructure? I guess he thought he was worth more jusy like Palmer does. Idiots at work here. Huff filling Reeds shoes? How much did he think he would get?

    Hey si1m, your joke might have made sense if I were a Redskins fan. Keep up the good work.
