Michael Huff talks up new Raiders coach
By Bill Williamson
Oakland defensive back Michael Huff tweeted that he had a productive talk with new Oakland coach Dennis Allen, and Huff said he is excited for Allen’s plans on defense. That could be an indication the Raiders will figure out a way to restructure Huff's contract if he is not cut.
Allen said last week at the NFL combine that he could see a scenario where Huff is moved from safety to cornerback. Allen said it will depend on what the Raiders do in the secondary in the offseason.
Allen said Huff has the skill set of a corner. Huff played cornerback at Texas. The previous regime had reportedly planned to move Huff from safety to cornerback for the 2012 season. Huff has tweeted recently that he is willing to play whatever position that helps Oakland win.
