ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed safety Michael Huff to their active roster and placed safety Rahim Moore on injured reserve-designated for return, it was announced. Moore can resume practicing with the team in six weeks (Dec. 31) and is eligible to play in eight weeks (Jan. 14).

Also on Tuesday, the Broncos signed safety John Boyett to their practice squad and released running back Edwin Baker.

Huff (6-0, 211 pounds) is an eighth-year player who has seen action in 115 regular-season games (94 starts) with Oakland (2006-12) and Baltimore (2013), totaling 461 tackles (373 solo), 5.5 sacks (24.5 yds.), 11 interceptions (75 yds.), 54 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He started all 16 games as recently as 2012 when he led the Raiders with a career-high 15 passes defensed. He received second-team All-Pro honors following his 2010 campaign in which he set career highs in tackles (98), sacks (4) and interceptions (3).

Drafted by Oakland in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft, Huff was a four-year starter at the University of Texas, where he finished his career by winning the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back.

Huff graduated from Nimitz High School in Irving, Texas, and was born on March 6, 1983.

Boyett (5-10, 203 pounds) is a rookie from the University of Oregon who was drafted by Indianapolis in the sixth round (192nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He competed with the Colts during the preseason before being waived on Sept. 3.

An All-Pac 12 Conference performer for the Ducks, he played in 40 career games (35 starts) and totaled 278 tackles (182 solo), 10 interceptions and 30 passes defensed.

He attended Napa (Calif.) High School and was born on Dec. 20, 1989.
