IRVING, Texas – Free agent safety Michael Huff is among a bevy of players scheduled to work out for the Cowboys.
The bye week is a typical time for teams to schedule workouts. With the barrage of injuries that have hit the Cowboys, they're working out at least 16 free agent players.
Many of those players are potential defensive additions, after the Cowboys allowed 625 total yards of offense against the Saints. The loss in New Orleans marked the second time in the last three games the Cowboys’ defense has surrendered at least 600 yards of total offense.
Huff, a former first-round pick in 2006 by the Raiders, played in Oakland through the 2012 season and registered 11 interceptions, including at least two in each of his final four seasons with the team. The Irving, Texas, native then signed with the Ravens in March 2013 and played in seven games before getting released last month.
In addition to Huff, the Cowboys also worked out defensive backs Jordan Pugh, Nick Saenz, George Baker, T.J. Heath and Brandon Hughes. Pugh and Hughes were both former draft picks.
The Cowboys also worked out linemen on both sides of the ball, including offensive linemen Chris DeGeare, Brandon Keith, Ryan Miller, Eric Olsen, Wayne Tribue and John Wetzel. The defensive linemen workouts included Logan Harrell, Corvey Irvin, Ogemdi Nwagbuo and Torell Troup.
Troup and Irvin were former second and third round selections, respectively, while DeGeare, Keith, Miller and Olsen were also former draft picks.
