NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Safety Michael Huff has defended coach Tom
Cable's decision to replace him in the Oakland Raiders starting
secondary early last season, saying it was the right call at the time.

Huff, the team's first-round draft pick in 2006, admitted being frustrated by the move but acknowledged it was warranted.

In order to get back in the team's good graces, Huff spent the summer studying tapes of the top safeties in the NFL today, going through a checklist of issues in his own game to correct.

Through the first week of Oakland's training camp, however, Huff has been relegated to working primarily with the Raiders' backups while Hiram Eugene practices with the starters. Eugene took Huff's job a year ago.
