The Ravens are interested in former Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

The Super Bowl champions aren't alone in that category, though.

The Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans are among the other teams that have Huff firmly on their radar, per the source.

Huff was released by the Raiders along with former Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey prior to the start of the free agent signing period.

Huff, 30, could give the Ravens a contingency plan if veteran free safety Ed Reed leaves the team and joins the Houston Texans.

Huff recorded 56 tackles, two interceptions and 13 pass deflections, lining up at both cornerback and safety. He was selected seventh overall in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft out of the Texas, where he was an All-American selection.

In seven NFL seasons, the 6-foot, 211-pound Texas native has 438 career tackles, 11 interceptions, 55 pass deflections and four forced fumbles.
