The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed former Gator Keiwan Ratliff. He is being considered to move in at punt returner, and will add depth at cornerback. He joins Kevin Carter, Earnest Graham, and Ike Hilliard as former Gators on the Bucs.

For my first two years of school, Graham, Ratliff, Ben Troupe, and Carlos Perez were the ones who made the Zook era tolerable (my junior year, Zook's third season, sucked). I remember Ratliff bringing electricity to every punt return, but I'm hoping he ends up returning kickoffs. Since 1976, the Bucs' inaugural season, they have never run back a kick off. Ever. The only thing that rivals this streak is the New York Mets' run of zero no-hitters since 1962.
