Michael Huff agrees to five-year deal

Adam Schefter of NFL.com reports that the Oakland Raiders have signed first round pick Michael Huff to a five-year deal reported to be worth $22.5 to $26.5 million dollars, including $15 million in guarantees.

In actuality, Huff's agent Ben Dogra confirmed that "he has agreed in principle to a deal but has not been signed." The deal should come to fruition within the next 24 hours. The Raiders have their first round pick in camp on time and he is expected to get the starting nod at safety opposite Stuart Shweigert when the season opens.

Huff was the first player in University of Texas history to win the Thorpe Award, given to the Nations top defensive back, starting 50 of 51 games during his career.

He played cornerback and safety during his collegiate career and was taken seventh overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by Oakland.
