Michael Huff to visit Cowboys
By Calvin Watkins
Veteran safety Michael Huff will visit the Dallas Cowboys at Valley Ranch on Monday, according to a source.
Huff, an Irving, Texas native who played at the University of Texas, finished the 2012 season with two interceptions and a team-leading 15 pass break-ups for the Oakland Raiders. Huff was released by the Raiders last week.
The Cowboys are also bringing in safety Will Allen and linebacker Justin Durant on Monday.
Signing any of these players won't occur immediately. The Cowboys are just $102,000 under the salary cap and would need to restructure some contracts to make room for any free-agent signings. The Cowboys will get $2 million in savings this summer thanks to the release of defensive end Marcus Spears because he was designated as a post-June 1 cut. The team could gain an additional savings of $7 million if it lets tackle Doug Free go as a post-June 1 cut.
