The Raiders announced the re-signing of veteran free safety Michael Huff on Sunday.
Huff was an unrestricted free agent after spending his first five seasons with the Raiders. He likely will remain in the starting role he has occupied for most of his NFL career.
The Raiders still are toying with the prospect of finding a better mix among their safeties, with Tyvon Branch, Mike Mitchell and Stevie Brown pushing for starting spots and enhanced roles.
Huff blossomed into a solid player two seasons ago, and the Raiders were intent upon bringing him back. Huff, like other players who signed new deals, is not eligibile to practice until Aug. 4.
Today’s practice begins at 3:30 p.m. We will keep an eye out for Huff on the field and seek comment.
