While Free Agency Slows, Bucs Remain Busy

TAMPA – Has somebody put the brakes on free-agency? It sure seems like it.
Aside from the T.O. signing very little happened over the weekend. And with the exception of someone signing Roy Williams, not much figures to happen this week either. Except maybe here in Tampa.
The Bucs are expected to stay busy, and well they should with needs at cornerback, linebacker and quarterback still to fill.
For those who may have forgotten, the Bucs are expected to visit today with Broncos free agent corner Karl Paymah and tomorrow with Bills free agent linebacker Angelo Crowell.
The Crowell visit is the most intriguing, because Crowell may be the best linebacker in free agency. He missed all of last season because of a knee injury but if he’s healthy he could push for starter’s time at either the weakside or strongside spots.
Paymah has a number of visits scheduled but he’s played for new Bucs defensive coordinator Jim Bates before so the familiarity between the two may allow them to become a match again.
If not, there’s a chance the Bucs will look into signing - or should we say re-signing - former Gators corner Keiwan Ratliff. Ratliff was with the Bucs briefly in 2007. He spent the 2008 season with the Colts, starting four games. He could be just what they’re looking for in a third cornerback.
