The Pittsburgh Steelers, looking to rebuild some depth at the defensive back position, signed free agent Keiwan Ratliff to a one-year deal.

Ratliff, who goes 5'11", 188 and is 28 years old, was a 2004 2nd-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals out of the University of Florida. He has since moved on to play for both Tampa Bay and Indianapolis in 2007 before spending all of 2008 with the Colts. He had 32 tackles and two interceptions in four starts for Indy last season. One of those picks occurred in a 24-20 Colts win over the Steelers on November 8, so you can be fairly sure that Big Ben is somewhat familiar with Ratliff.

Born in nearby Youngstown, Ohio, Ratliff was a 2003 First-Team All-American and was a finalist for the Thorpe Award while at Florida.
