Dolphins signed CB Anthony Gaitor, formerly of the Bucs.

Gaitor was cut loose by Tampa two weeks ago. He tore his ACL last summer and missed the entire season. Gaitor made 12 tackles and broke up five passes across 12 games for the Bucs from 2011-2012. At 5-foot-10 and 182 pounds, he profiles as a slot corner but will be competing for a spot on special teams.

Bucs waived DB Anthony Gaitor and signed LS Anthony DePaola.

Gaitor appeared in just four games over the last two seasons, battling hamstring woes in 2012 and sustaining a torn ACL during camp last year. A Mark Dominik-regime holdover, Gaitor was a seventh-round pick of the Bucs in 2011.

Bucs placed CB Anthony Gaitor on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

The Bucs' coaching staff has been high on Gaitor's talent the past two seasons, but he can't stay healthy. He missed much of last year with a hamstring injury and will spend 2013 on I.R. He's still under contract for 2014.

Bucs activated CB Anthony Gaitor (hamstring) off injured reserve/designated for return.

According to coach Greg Schiano, Gaitor "will have a role on Sunday" against the Eagles. Gaitor had yet to play before being sent to injured reserve in October, and made only eight appearances as a seventh-round rookie in 2011. Circumstances have changed with both Aqib Talib and Eric Wright out of the fold, however. Gaitor will be fourth or fifth on the depth chart.

Bucs assigned CB Anthony Gaitor (hamstring) the "designated for return" tag on injured reserve.

Gaitor has been sidelined since early in the preseason. The second-year pro can't resume practicing for six weeks. Gaitor appeared in just eight games last season, making five tackles. It's possible the move to injured reserve saved his roster spot.

Bucs signed seventh-round CB Anthony Gaitor to a four-year deal.

Most analysts have referred to Gaitor as a steal at No. 222 overall. A four-year starter at Florida International, he's a good bet to make the team even though Aqib Talib is sticking around.

Buccaneers selected Florida International CB Anthony Gaitor with the No. 222 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A four-year starter and three-time All-Conference selection, Gaitor is a size-challenged corner with decent ball skills. If he hits his ceiling in a year or two, the Bucs may have a nickel or dime corner on their hands. For what it's worth, NFL Network's Mike Mayock and Charles Davis both loved his game tape.
