Many believe that free agent safety Michael Huff, formerly of the Oakland Raiders, would be a good fit for the Dallas Cowboys, but seven-time Pro Bowler Warren Sapp is not one of them, as he made abundantly clear in a recent appearance on local radio.
Sapp played with the University of Texas product in his time with the Raiders and came away more than a little unimpressed with Huff’s work ethic, recently going so far as to say that Huff’s performances in practice made him physically ill.
“Michael Huff leaves something to be desired,” Sapp said during a recent appearance on ESPN Radio 103.3 FM’s Ben and Skin Show. “I watched Huff for two years, not pick a pass off in practice. I seen him make a couple plays, lately. I’d really be interested to see his tape and watch his last couple of years because his first two make you want to throw up watching him practice.”
To be fair, Huff has improved over the past few years--he was even named a second team All Pro in 2010--and, aside from that, we’re assuming that some hyperbole is at work here. Sapp couldn’t possibly have wanted to throw up watching Huff practice, could he?
Well we’d assume not literally, but Sapp did say it again, to drive the point home.
“I went so far with Michael Huff, and you can ask him this, that my last day in Oakland, I waited in the parking lot for Michael Huff," Sapp said. "I waited in the parking lot because I wanted to talk to the young man because he made me want to throw up watching him practice. I mean, the scout team would complete ball, after ball, after ball. I’m like, ‘You’re not going to make one play? I mean, you’re not even going to put your hand on it and knock it down?’”
