Huff got a vote, so he’s second-team All-Pro

Raiders free safety Michael Huff, scheduled for free agency whenever a labor agreement is reached, probably won’t be putting “second team, All-Pro, 2010” on his list of accomplishments.

Huff indeed got a single vote out of the panel of 50 to finish in a seven-way tie to be the second safety on the second team. The first team safeties were (surprise!) Troy Polamalu of Pittsburgh and Ed Reed of Baltimore. Green Bay’s Nick Harris finished behind Polamalu and Reed and was the first pick of the second team.

Other safeties that got one vote were Antrel Rolle (Giants), Eric Weddle (Chargers), Malcolm Jenkins (Saints), Quintin Mikell (Eagles), Chris Harris (Bears), Michael Griffin (Titans) and Darren Sharper (Saints).

(For what it’s worth, Sharper, after a magnificent season last year when the Saints won the Super Bowl, played in eight games, started one, had 16 tackles and one pass defensed. And got a vote. Compared to that, Huff looks like Larry Wilson.)

Huff got the same amount of All-Pro votes as Marcel Reece, who tied for sixth among fullbacks, and fewer votes than Sebastian Janikowski (four votes, third among place kickers) and Jacoby Ford (two votes, 3rd among kick returners).

Despite having gross and net yardage figures that were less than Cowboys’ punter Mat McBriar, Shane Lechler had 34 of 50 first place votes. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was the leading vote-getter among cornerbacks, being named on 20 ballots.

The Raiders slipped the name of offensive coordinator Al Saunders into the coaching roster on Raiders.com without an announcement.

Still listed are line coach Jim Michalczik and quarterbacks coach Paul Hackett, although my understanding is neither will be back. Michalczik will return to Jeff Tedford’s staff at Cal. According to the Twitter account of David White of the Chronicle, wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal, running backs coach Kelly Skipper and tight ends coach Adam Henry were all with Hue Jackson’s contingent in Mobile, Ala., at the Senior Bowl, a pretty good indication they will be retained.

    There’s also some damn fine right tackle prospects that can be had from the 2nd round on that I’d rather see get a shot over Mario Henderson:

    DeMarcus Love, Arkansas
    Jason Pinkston, Pitt
    Joe Barksdale, LSU
    Darius Morris, Temple
    Marcus Gilbert, Florida
    Marcus Cannon, TCU (good guard candidate too)

    I love the Senior Bowl and all the practice notes and such.

    Going through the North practices, most disappointing players seems to be Titus Young. Got handled in all blocking drills and dropped a bunch of practices. Jake Locker looked inaccurate (shocking!!) and threw two picks in padless drills.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Is Skipper really a bum?

    ***

    LA,

    He died in 1990 … show some respect!

    Back in the day it was all about Ginger & Mary Ann anyways :P

  • Just Fire Baby

    I wanted to see if Wiz 2.0 played any Center in the Senior Bowl, but I don’t see his name on the roster.

    Did he opt out??

  • RaiderRockstar

    Yes. JLH & Nmiller are both free agents

    same thing with Gradkowski, Boller, Frye & O’Sullivan …

    replacing depth doesn’t make you a playoff calibur football team

    Is anybody seriously looking forward to a Campbell to DHB, Murphy, Ford & Schilens (for 3 games) show again?

    That is what the passing game will look like. Hopefully we can re-sign Zach Miller & Marcel Reece or JCamp will be left without a security blanket!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Trade Carlisle and JLH to move up 5 spots in the 3rd round maybe?

    ***

    Cooper Carlisle is surely on the outs. The other guys available for trade that are under contract might be Groves & CJ37 (but I like both of them)

  • Just Fire Baby

    On the other hand Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones not only is undersized, coming in at under 6 foot at today’s weigh-in. But he looked really stiff in coverage, is easy to separate from in any kind of space and simply doesn’t have the ability to turn and run with tight ends down the seam at the next level. He’s a tightly wound, tight-hipped kind of prospect who is limited to more of a two down guy only.

    ************************

    This guy’s draft prospects continue to slip by the day.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Trevor Scott & Chaz Schilens could be traded, but I doubt we’d get much in return!

  • J Hill

    Hopefully we can re-sign Zach Miller & Marcel Reece or JCamp will be left without a security blanket!

    ——————————————————-

    Those 2 and Bush will be restricted FAs. Count on seeing those 3 in S&B next year.

  • LA to TheBay

    I think we’d resign Bush and Miller anyway, regardless of UFA v. RFA status.

  • J Hill

    While we are it, we can probably move on from Nick Miller as well.

    ——————————————————

    JLH and Nick Miller will certainly be upgraded.

    Using Desean Jackson as an example, Jacoby Ford needs to return punts!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Those 2 and Bush will be restricted FAs. Count on seeing those 3 in S&B next year.

    I think we’d resign Bush and Miller anyway, regardless of UFA v. RFA status.

    ***

    let me break it down for you fellas

    Zach Miller = Unrestricted FA
    Michael Bush = Restricted FA
    Marcel Reece = Exclusive-Rights FA

  • OAKlifer

    He could complete 80% of his passes for 50 TD’s and 2 INT’s next year, and I still think he won’t go in the first 4 rounds, due to his measurables.

    *******

    Is Drew Brees anygood……I would love to draft a
    Brees/Moore tyoe in the Fourht anyday….Brees 6’0 209 and thats probaly in cleats and dripping wet…from the super bowl champaign

  • Just Fire Baby

    I’m thinking the top 4 FA’s we need to re-sign are Seymour, Nnamdi, Huff and Bush.

    I think we will only land 3 of the 4. Seymour and Nnamdi will get less money per year, but more guaranteed over the life of a contract, and Huff and especially Bush will get pay raises.

  • J Hill

    97.LA to TheBay Says:

    I think we will be looking for a C in the offseason, if we keep Gallery.

    Veldheer-Gallery-???-Campbell-Henderson/Walker

    Don’t see us getting 4 new starters. Coop is definitely trade bait.

    ——————————————————

    Gaither-Walker-Veldheer-Campbell-Henderson

  • Just Fire Baby

    Restricted FA’s just mean we have the right to match an offer sheet right?

    Is Al going to let other teams dictate his price for Bush?

    What if Bush gets a 3 year $11 million dollar offer sheet? Do we match that?

    I’m inclined to say no.

  • J Hill

    let me break it down for you fellas

    Zach Miller = Unrestricted FA

    ——————————————————-

    Zack Miller has 4 years in. How is he an UFA?

  • J Hill

    RFA means we can put a tender on them JFB.

    Morrison was a restricted FA last year and got 3rd rd tender I believe. If a team would’ve signed him away from us, we would get their 3rd rd pick.

    1st and 3rd for Routt. A team signing Routt woulda had to give us a 1st and 3rd rd pick.

  • Just Fire Baby

    We don’t know what the UFA-RFA terms or any of that stuff is going to be, so no sense debating it.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’m thinking the top 4 FA’s we need to re-sign are Seymour, Nnamdi, Huff and Bush.

    I think we will only land 3 of the 4.

    ***

    not happy with little Nicky or my boy JLH? fine …

    but our special teams will go in the toilet without Rock Cartwright, Jon Condo, Sam Williams, Ricky Brown & Hiram Eugene!

    Moss, Howard & Davis are ST’ers we can live without imo

  • J Hill

    JFB,

    What numbers do you see Huff taking to come back?

    Nnamdi???

  • Just Fire Baby

    The thing about the Cutler debate that bugs me is nobody is looking at Pouncey in the same light.

    Cutler had an MCL sprain and he gets raked over the coals for not going back in. Hell even Bruce Gradkowski took a shot at him saying he played WITH TWO MCL sprains in a meaningless game last year.

    But Pouncey layed face first on the field for 5 minutes, hobbled off and was seen on crutches…..with a sprained ankle?? Where are all the O-lineman out there that have played in games with sprained ankles before in outrage??

    Huge double-standard.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Zack Miller has 4 years in. How is he an UFA?

    ***

    I got that info from WIKI man. I’m not gonna argue that it’s 100 percent accurate

  • Just Fire Baby

    What numbers do you see Huff taking to come back?

    Nnamdi???

    ***************************

    I think Nnamdi will get similar numbers to Revis, and with some of the incentives like what Al put in. Other teams probably won’t like goose-eggs across the board for him, even if he isn’t thrown to much. I will say Nnamdi signs somewhere for 6 years $55million.

    Huff probably the 3 year 17 million range

  • RaiderRockstar

    JFB,

    What numbers do you see Huff taking to come back?

    Nnamdi???

    ***

    Huff = $5 million per

    Asomugha = $10 million per (if what Al Davis said was true in the presser)

  • RaiderRockstar

    I will say Nnamdi signs somewhere for 6 years $55million.

    Huff probably the 3 year 17 million range

    ***

    We were close!

  • J Hill

    You think that is all Huff is going to get?

    You don’t think one of the Texas teams will come in and over bid for him?

    If Huff will take 17 million, then yeah we have a shot at bringing him back.

  • DeuceDeuce

    Did i really read someone say “Carlisle is trade bait”…wow

  • RaiderRockstar

    We can afford Michael Huff. Look what our other safeties are making in 2011

    Branch 555k
    Mitchell 480k
    S Brown 405k

  • raidertay

    I could really see VY in Silver and Black next year. That sounds like an AD move. And the reports during that years draft was that Al was enamored with VY. VY to OchoCinco. That could be fun.

  • OAKlifer

    Where are all the O-lineman out there that have played in games with sprained ankles before in outrage??

    Huge double-standard.

    **********

    Former lineman here and I;ve had a high ankle sprain that made it to were I couldnt walk let alone pull trap or reach block…Tough injury I’ve sprained an mcl and was able to walk geuss it depends on the severity. Cutler is a PUNK and wouldnt play on a stubbed toe.

  • DeuceDeuce

    After the way Al just gushed over Jason Campbell i dont see that happening..

  • RaiderRockstar

    I could really see VY in Silver and Black next year

    ***

    Tay,

    Vince Young is entering the last year of his contract.

    He is on pace to make $8.5 million in salary plus a $4.25 million roster bonus (due March 10th)

  • RaiderRockstar

    VY to OchoCinco. That could be fun

    ***

    Ocho is under contract for $6 million in 2011, and the money is not believed to be guaranteed.
