Three weeks after being cut by the Baltimore Ravens, former Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff has a new home.

The Denver Broncos signed Huff on Tuesday, according to the team's official website.

Battista: Heavy mettle
Judy Battista explains why Denver's win over Kansas City means so much when it comes to the Broncos' ultimate ambitions. READ

Handed a three-year, $6 million contract to fill the void left by Ed Reed, Huff was benched for rookie Matt Elam following the season opener. He was waived in late October after committing what coach John Harbaugh called an "unforgivable" mistake on a kickoff return.

The 30-year-old has started 94 of 115 career games since being chosen No. 7 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.

Huff will add depth behind Duke Ihenacho and Mike Adams following free safety Rahim Moore's Monday surgery to alleviate the lateral compartment syndrome in his leg. The Broncos subsequently placed Moore on the injured reserve-recall list.

Judging by his Ravens experience, the Broncos should probably think twice about using Huff on special teams.
