The Ravens continued the renovation of their defense on Wednesday, signing former Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff to a three-year deal worth $6 million. He is the fourth defender the Ravens have signed in free agency, along with pass rusher Elvis Dumervil and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears. With the Ravens being forced to pinch pennies and cut ties with a couple of valuable veterans due to their tight salary cap situation, we have been talking a lot about the “right player at the right price” this offseason.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is largely the reason that free safety Michael Huff lost his starting job with the Ravens. Now, he's the reason that Huff will get a chance to play in the Super Bowl. It's been a rollercoaster season for Huff, the former first-round pick who signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Ravens in late March to replace long-time star Ed Reed . However, Huff started just one game with the Ravens before he was demoted, a result of getting repeatedly torched by Manning and company in the Broncos' regular-season opening 49-27 victory over Baltimore.

The Ravens continue to fill holes on their defense and at a significantly lower price than the players who departed. About a week after their long-time free safety Ed Reed signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Houston Texans, the Ravens settled on a potential replacement, agreeing in principle to a three-year, $6 million pact with former Oakland Raider Michael Huff on Wednesday. Huff, who was released March 12 as part of the Raiders' roster purge, will be at the Ravens' facility Thursday to take his physical and sign his contract.

Midway through the NFL season, the Ravens' rookie class has shown incremental signs of progress. With the exception of undrafted wide receiver Marlon Brown and free safety Matt Elam, a first-round pick, the other rookies have yet to make an impact. Although the Ravens have yet to see significant contributions from most of their rookies, coach John Harbaugh said he is satisfied with their development. "They've done well, I don't have a grade," Harbaugh said. "We're pleased with those guys.

It was a quiet regular-season debut for Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam. The first-round draft pick substituted for struggling veteran free safety Michael Huff during the Ravens' 49-27 blowout loss to the Denver Broncos where they allowed seven touchdown passes to Peyton Manning. As Huff failed to contain Broncos tight end Julius Thomas with the former college basketball player scoring two touchdowns, Elam wound up playing 15 snaps in relief of Huff, most of them with the game already decided in the fourth quarter, and had one tackle and no pass deflections.

Eleven days ago, Ravens coach John Harbaugh vowed to do “whatever it takes” to turn around a season headed in the wrong direction. As Ravens' players reported to the team facility Wednesday and learned of the release of defensive end Marcus Spears and free safety Michael Huff, two veterans signed this past offseason as part of the organization's defensive makeover, they had officially been put on notice. “It shows that everybody is going to be held accountable whether it's a rookie guy or a veteran guy,” fullback Vonta Leach said.

The significance of replacing Ed Reed resonated strongly with new Ravens free safety Michael Huff, a feeling he imparted to the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Before Huff officially signed his three-year, $6 million contract, he texted Reed to let him know that his old job was in good hands. Reed left Baltimore and joined the Houston Texans last week when the nine-time Pro Bowl selection signed a three-year, $15 million contract. “It means a lot,” Huff said Thursday afternoon during an introductory news conference at team headquarters.

Michael Huff spent his final season with the Oakland Raiders last year primarily lining up at cornerback, forced to cover some of the top receivers in the game. Although Huff didn't embarrass himself as he started all but two games on the outside because of injuries in the secondary, it wasn't his natural position. It's an altogether different situation for Huff with the Ravens after he signed a three-year, $6 million contract this offseason to replace Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a smart move this week by cutting safety Michael Huff and defensive end Marcus Spears. You're never happy when someone losses their job, but Harbaugh set the tone going into a very big week. He gave out a warning after the Ravens lost to the Steelers that the team was willing to make changes or do whatever necessary to win. That in itself kept the players on edge over the bye week, and those announced cuts on Wednesday sent a message and created a sense of urgency.

It is the time of year for victories, not excuses. We've been hearing a lot of them from the Ravens (3-4) since the season opening debacle in Denver. The receivers are old and quarterback Joe Flacco needs time with his new ones. The offensive line is hurt. The secondary lacks communication and the special teams aren't so special. It's Juan Castillo's fault. And the list goes on and on and on ... Well, it's time to put up or shut up. "We know what time of year it is," Ravens running back Ray Rice said.

When rookie defensive lineman Brandon Williams arrived at the office Wednesday and learned that his mentor was no longer employed at the company, he reached for his phone and typed him a text message. “Thanks for everything you've done for me,” Williams wrote. “Thanks for teaching me how to be a pro.” The release of defensive end Marcus Spears and free safety Michael Huff caught many players, including Williams, off guard Wednesday. The veteran players who have seen teammates come and go before quickly shrugged it off. But for a rookie like Williams, saying goodbye to Spears was a new experience.

After sitting out last week's win over the Houston Texans with a hip injury, the first game he had missed since his rookie season, running back Ray Rice was listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Not only did Rice play, he received a heavy workload in the 23-20 loss . Rice played 43 of the team's 63 offensive snaps, though he was mostly just there for show -- well, pass blocking if you want to get technical. Rice received just five carries as the Ravens abandoned the running game at halftime, and he was targeted just once as a receiver on the 50 passes that Joe Flacco tossed.

The education of Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam is approaching a pivotal early phase, a moment he intends to be ready for. The first-round draft pick already knows what's heading his way Sunday against the Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium. He'll be matching wits and speed with a sophisticated, high-powered offense led by veteran quarterback Matt Schaub. Here come the play-action passes intended to gauge whether Elam is too aggressive and will overreact to fakes by sprinting toward the line of scrimmage, eager to deliver punishment.

A week after Michael Huff struggled in a loss to the Denver Broncos, rookie Matt Elam, the team's first-round pick in April's NFL draft, replaced Huff as the starting free safety in Sunday's 14-6 win over the Cleveland Browns . Elam played every defensive snap for the Ravens and made five tackles. Outside of the big pass play to Browns tight end Jordan Cameron early in the first quarter, Elam appeared to cover well during his 63 defensive snaps. Huff, meanwhile, played four defensive snaps in the sub package as strong safety James Ihedigbo never left the field, either.
