Ravens beat Bucs to Anderson

So much for Tampa Bay's attempt to add Willie Anderson. The veteran offensive tackle signed with the Ravens, according to Bengals.com.

The deal reportedly is for three years and worth $11 million. Anderson was supposed to visit the Bucs today, but problems catching a flight prevented that and he accepted Baltimore's offer in the meantime.

That leaves Tampa Bay with Donald Penn as the starting left tackle and Anthony Davis as the backup. Anderson, a former Pro Bowler, likely would have provided an instant challenge to Penn for the starting job.
