Safety Michael Huff will become an unrestricted free agent when the lockout is lifted, but former Oakland Raiders teammate Warren Sapp thinks interested teams should think long and hard before signing him.
Sapp was a guest on a Dallas radio station on Tuesday, and the NFL Network analyst didn't hold back when asked if the Cowboys should court the defender, a local product who was a standout at the University of Texas “Michael Huff leaves something to be desired,” Sapp told KESN-FM via The Dallas Morning News. “I watched Huff for two years, not pick a pass off in practice. I saw 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.”
Huff was the seventh overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, but Sapp painted the picture of an entitled young player who didn't exert the proper effort to reach his full potential “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?’”
Despite his perceived shortcomings, The Associated Press named Huff to its 2010 All-Pro second team. He finished last year with a career-high 94 tackles, two forced fumbles, seven passes defense and three interceptions. The 28-year-old has never missed a game in his NFL career
