Bucs add Keiwan Ratliff
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.
