Veteran safety Michael Huff is auditioning for the Cowboys at Valley Ranch on Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
It was rumored that Dallas was interested in the University of Texas product in free agency this offseason, but he signed a three-year deal with the Ravens worth $6 million instead. Huff only started one game for them, however, and was cut late in October after just seven games.
The Cowboys are missing starting safety, rookie J.J. Wilcox, who is dealing with a sprained knee. Fellow rookie Jeff Heath replaced him in the starting lineup against the Saints on Sunday, but struggled mightily. As you may have heard, the Cowboys have the worst passing defense in the league through 10 games.
Huff was the seventh overall pick by the Raiders back in 2006. He is a native of Irving, TX.
