Bucs add Keiwan Ratliff



Ratliff The Bucs have signed free agent cornerback Keiwan Ratliff, a former Florida Gator and second-round pick of the Bengals in 2004.

Ratliff was waived by the Bengals in September and has been out of work since. It's not likely the Bucs need him to do much at cornerback, where they have Ronde Barber, Phillip Buchanon and Brian Kelly -- who recently returned from a groin injury.

Instead, Ratliff appears to be a candidate to return punts, something he did frequently in Cincinnati. Ratliff was already on the field for this morning's special-teams workout.

To make room on the roster, the Bucs released Chas Gessner.
