The Baltimore Ravens and free-agent safety Michael Huff have agreed in principle to a three-year deal, the team announced Wednesday.

A former first-round draft pick of the Raiders in 2006, Huff has spent his entire career in Oakland. Huff was cut by the team earlier this month.

Huff, 29, started 93 games in seven seasons with the Raiders. His best year came in 2010, when he had 94 tackles, four sacks and three interceptions. Injuries in the Oakland secondary forced Huff to play some corner in 2012.

The Ravens and general manager Ozzie Newsome have re-loaded nicely after losing Ed Reed, Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger to free agency. The team has since signed Huff and Elvis Dumervil.

Huff was also on the Cowboys' radar but he wasn't too keen on waiting around for Dallas to clean up its salary cap situation.
