Huff wonders about Cowboys’ interest

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, April 3rd, 2011 at 7:03 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Since the Raiders didn’t include free safety Michael Huff in their pre-lockout signing spree that included Richard Seymour, Stanford Routt and a franchise tag for Kamerion Wimbley, he is scheduled for unrestricted free agency once a collective bargaining agreement is reached or the league returns to business by court order.

Talking with the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram at the Texas pro day, Huff said he has thought about the possibility of returning to his home state.

The Raiders made a just-in-case (and still unannounced) signing of Hiram Eugene to a four-year contract in the event Huff ends up playing elsewhere.

Dallas is a natural for more than being Huff’s home state. Cowboys free safety Alan Ball had just two interceptions and one forced fumble in 16 starts, and the Cowboys’ new defensive coordinator is Rob Ryan, who held the same position in Oakland when Huff was drafted No. 7 overall.

If Huff had been a priority with the Raiders, he would already be under contract. The fact that he’s not doesn’t mean the Raiders aren’t interested, but are willing to see what Huff is worth on the market rather than moving decisively to set the market as they did with Seymour, Routt and Wimbley.

    I think brown will be fine, he has the instincts and the speed to play the position, he only needs more playing time. Huff started in his second year because he was a high draft choice, that doesnt mean he was any good at that time. Brown already looks like a more natural player with ball hawking skill in my opinion.

    I think cable & marshall made a terrible mistake by not playing mm 34, brown and ware. Especially when it was clear that we were not going to the post season. This is in part why i think marshall and cable had to go. davis hinted at it in his press conference, not being happy that the youth did not see the field. same can be applied to ford and b campbell.

    cable trusted his guys, his pets and favorites and put that ahead of the development of the young players. Glad he is gone and now we have a real coach, that will play our draft picks.

    When MM34 got his int in the Jax game, he immediately rab over to the sidelines and did the jumping, side-bump thing kids do with……….Tom Cable.

    I think the riff between Cable and MM34 was greatly exaggerated, or possibly just made up entirely.

    So who is 100% responsible for the huge government debt? didn’t clinton pay it all, then W. went balls to the wall with debt?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Hue said that the offense was his, and it was his decisions with personnel and play-calling.

    So why didn’t HE play Bruce Campbell??

    You look at the state of New Mexico where I live.

    Only state in the union with an ethnicity, other than white as the majority. Hispanics make up 48% of the population.

    We also have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the county (right at 7%), have full-scholarship lottery money for EVERY high school kid who carries a 3.5 GPA into college and than holds onto a 3.0 while in college.

    These folks just work hard, don’t think the world is out to get them, and add some type of culture other than saggy pants and near riots at high school basketball games.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Bruce Campbell was active for 10 games last year, but we rarely ever saw him in the field.

    You telling me that Hue couldn’t have sent him on the field, during those 10 games, do get some reps?

    What would have Cable done? Physically remove him from the field? He had no pull in the organization, if he complained it would have just quickened the firing and fining process.

    Bruce Campbell didn’t play, because Bruce Campbell wasn’t ready.

    New Mexico gets $1.89 in taxpayer money for ever dollar they put in, Republican.

    Sounds like a great return on our investment.

    Maybe the government doesn’t view it as a fly-over state and sees the value in investing in people that work and don’t complain about the man while stealing cars.

    What the black people of this country don’t understand is the sothern dem’s were the people who enslaved them in the first place. They then came up with public housing, food stamps, free medical, etc, just to get their vote, to get elected. Black people are still under their spell, three generations worth of freebies, how many of them ever had a job?

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Man, this blog is nonstop politics and racism. I hate politics and racism.

    Quick note: If Bruce Campbell was ready to play he would have been n the field, look at Jarred V, played all 16 games as rookie.

    I dont think MM34 is going to beat Tyvon or Eugene for a strating spot.

    States Receiving Most in Federal Spending Per Dollar of Federal Taxes Paid:

    1. D.C. ($6.17)

    …so for every dollar the Fed Gov spends, 6.17 go to D.C. or is it 6.17%? the math aint working.

    Macho, MM34 is set to deliver, I say let him go to it. DC is Dems paying for Public housing, etc, see previous post, I’m not racist, I have the stats, there glaring!

  • KoolKell

    What I don’t understand is all the fat-azzed snaggled teefed, white people in trailers parks along every backwoods trail in this country, collecting food stamps and welfare.

    Jeez, they all every advantage in the world.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    i didnt say there was a “rift” between cable & mm 34. However failure to bench the incumbents for the remainder of the year was a huge mistake by CABLE. This was in my view a desperate attempt to show that he could win with his guys, as there was clearly a disagreement between cable & davis over who should be on the field. i also think huff vs. brown, b campbell vs. carlisle, Ware, vs cj and scabs vs Jc fit into that mix as well.

    No matter what people say on this blog it is the head coaches job to set the depth chart and the head coach makes the decisions on who plays. cable made the wrong decisions, period, end of story.

    I’m in the finance, banking, trade and real estate industry.

    About 90% of the people I talk to who get into political and finance talk know W Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and Libby SCREWED this country up overall.

    The other 10% are old silly bitter men or women who have old fashioned right wings views that don’t apply in this day and age and refuse to admit the GOP and Republicans screwed it all up.

    Actually Barney Frank (D) pushed the Freddie & Fannie fiasco. GW tried to reform F & F but Dems blocked his bill.

    Why bother with facts, right?

    “”These two entities—Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. “The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

    DK, you are in the banking industry and you are this ignorant about F & F ?

    Not surprising at all for alibtard. Google is free do some research before you step in cow dung.

  • Mistabr0wn

    So in the name of “affordable housing” Dems ignored the F&F problem and blocked GW’s reform and then turn around and point the finger @ GW, typical libtard mentality, break something and then blame someone else.

    And DK is right there to swallow the goo!
    mope & change

    DK, take the banana out of your tail pipe!
