Jay Ratliff visits Chiefs, Bears

As free agent defensive tackle Jay Ratliff prepares for a legal battle with his old team, he’s also in the process of finding a new team.

Ratliff, who was cut by the Cowboys two weeks ago, has visited the Chiefs and Bears, according to Ed Werder of ESPN. Ratliff is also expected to visit at least one more team.

Werder reports that Ratliff, who was on the physically unable to perform list and didn’t play for the Cowboys this season, is expected to be healthy enough to play in two to four weeks.

If Ratliff is at full speed, he could provide a major upgrade in the middle of the defensive line for a lot of teams. A four-time Pro Bowler with the Cowboys, he could help the Chiefs, the Bears or a lot of other teams make a run to the playoffs.

    So does anyone honestly believe the Bears need a 32 year old DT for anything other than a stop gap measure until end of the season? I’d take him cheap for 2-3 months but their D needs to get younger!

    I think that he would be on the same level as Issy, whom signed with the Lions for vet min. (which I will never understand unless he was a Lovie only guy). What ever can stop the run for the rest of the year, until they can revamp the whole kit and caboodle.

    No way Ratliff will give any team 16 games. He is done.

    Waste of money, He might be full speed next season, but it will be playoff time before he gets up to speed this year, but for the right price?
