Default Steelers sign Ratliff

According to PFtalk:

I hope it is true. Now got a couple veteran guys like Ratliff and Bryant to add depth in camp.

I always liked the way Ratliff played in Cinci and HE CAN RETURN PUNTS!!!

Its been a very interesting off season to say the least.

No huge splashes, but Ryan Clark wasn't seen as a big deal when we signed him either. I'm still thinking, Trading up in the 1st to get a Solid D Lineman. That's what I bet they do.

This is so much the small signing that will mean a lot in the long run.

Taylor, Townsend, Gay, Ratliff, Madison and a rookie pick to replace Townsend next season. Its a nice corps of youth and experience..........plus it adds a player with kick return skills.

I guess we weren't as broke as all our Madden GM's thought.

Steelers reach one-year deal with CB Ratliff

Terms of the contract weren't immediately available.

A six-year vet, Ratliff started four games for the Indianapolis Colts last season and finished with 32 tackles and two interceptions.

I saw Ratliff get those INT's with the Colts...believe he returned one for 6, if I recall...or close to it.

I wonder if they signed him because of the lack of corner talent in this draft?

Can we now focus on linemen on either side of the ball?


Good signing either way.
