Former Raiders safety Michael Huff grew up near Dallas, and was a star at the University of Texas. But he's not going to wait around all day for the Cowboys to balance their checkbook for a chance to return home. The Cowboys have around $100,000 in cap room, preventing them from doing deals right now.

I won't even waste my time because Ted Thompson don't sign any free agents, I think we missed out on a cheap Ed Reed.

I was hoping we might be able to pick up Reed for the right money. His experience and leadership would have been great for our young DBs. Oh well...

The defense isn’t far off. Granted, the onus is on younger players to develop, but I can envision a scenario where Green Bay has a top-level defense in 2013.

For example, sign Michael Huff and I’ll use Jesse Williams as our first-round example.

Your base defense then consists of Williams, B.J. Raji, and Ryan Pickett on the d-line. You put Nick Perry, A.J. Hawk, Des Bishop, and Clay Matthews at linebacker. The defensive backfield looks good with Huff, Morgan Burnett, Sam Shields, and Tramon Williams.

You also have the necessary tools to run a successful 2-4-5. You can sub in Mike Neal, Casey Heyward, and Brad Jones. Then sub out Williams, Pickett, and Hawk. That’s not a bad looking defense on paper.

Michael Huff's stats are comparable to or better than Morgan Burnett's. they appear to be about the same, with Huff maybe being a little better in coverage (13 PDs in 2012).

Huff could be one of those players who takes his career to a new level in Green Bay. Capers would love to pair this player with Burnett. 4 sacks in 2010. Seems like a quality vet who might be a 2nd level FA signing. I would like to see it happen. A veteran presence back there could be huge.

It looks like Huff would be a nice addition. Not only would it give an established player presence at safety, it would allow a draft choice at another position of need. I hope Ted Thompson feels he's worth it, I trust TT.

uffda udfa: We aren't going to go 19-0 for 4 straight seasons with this regime! I fully believe there's one that could get us closer.
Zero2Cool: Mucky, I haven't forgot. Just been really busy. Hopefully this weekend.
Mucky Tundra: Only four undefeated seasons? Such low standards!
