The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have veteran offensive tackle Willie Anderson in for a visit, if he doesn't sign with Baltimore first.

Anderson, 33, recently was cut after 12 seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. A league source said Anderson will travel to Tampa tomorrow, unless he signs with the Ravens before then. Anderson also could visit San Diego, the source said.

Tampa Bay is thin on quality tackles after releasing Luke Petitgout, who was slow in recovering from a knee injury. Donald Penn is slated to be the starter at left tackle with Anthony Davis as the backup.

But Anderson, who was selected to five Pro Bowls, could provide an upgrade over Penn.
