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.
