Bucs signed QB Brett Ratliff, TE Collin Franklin, WR Ed Gant, LB Mike Balogun and OT Mike Ingersoll to reserve/future contracts.
A journeyman undrafted free agent, Ratliff has made zero career appearances since entering the league in 2007. Gant spent all of 2011 on the practice squad despite turning in a strong preseason. He could compete for a roster spot in 2012. Franklin was held off the stat-sheet in two games on the active roster. Balogun could latch on as a special teamer. Tue, Jan 3, 2012 11:23:00 PM

Titans waived QB Brett Ratliff.

Ratliff has bounced around practice squads since 2008, largely thanks to Eric Mangini's affinity for him. The Titans also waived WR Owen Spencer, FB Patrick Hill, LB Jonathan Cornell, LB Kevin Malast, LS John Stokes and P Chad Cunningham.

Titans signed QB Brett Ratliff, LS Jake Ingram, and LB Kevin Malast to reserve/future contracts.

The Titans have a slew of free agent linebackers, so Malast is insurance for the offseason. Ratliff is the biggest name, having bounced between the Jets and Browns. The 25-year-old still hasn't thrown a regular season pass.

Browns waived QB Brett Ratliff.

Seneca Wallace (ankle) was healthy enough to back up Colt McCoy in Week 10, and Jake Delhomme (ankle) isn't too far behind. McCoy will remain the starter, however. The Browns didn't have the roster space for four healthy QBs.
Tue, Nov 16, 2010 05:58:00 PM

Browns signed QB Brett Ratliff off the Patriots' practice squad.

Things can change between now and next weekend, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Browns have informed Ratliff he'll back up Colt McCoy in Week 6 at Pittsburgh. It's a nightmare situation for Cleveland. Ratliff was with the Browns at the start of training camp, and has a good chance to play some snaps next Sunday. McCoy is almost certain to struggle mightily.
Mon, Oct 11, 2010 03:35:00 PM

Jaguars signed QB Brett Ratliff, OT Daniel Baldridge, TE Mike Caussin, WR John Matthews, and DT Ko Quaye to their practice squad.

The team is expected to sign three more players to the squad on Monday. Ratliff has bounced around (Jets, Browns), but hasn't seen enough regular season action to be ineligible for the eight-man practice team. The Jaguars decided to grab him rather than retain undrafted rookie Trevor Harris.

Browns waived QB Brett Ratliff and OL Scott Kooistra.

Ratliff had an open window with Colt McCoy struggling in the preseason, but didn't seize it. The Browns will stick with the third-round pick from Texans.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 09:42:00 PM

Coach Eric Mangini insists he and team president Mike Holmgren are not opposed to carrying four quarterbacks this year.

That's easy to say in early May, but teams rarely go with four quarterbacks on cut-down day. While Brett Ratliff is a Mangini favorite from their time together with the Jets, he's a longshot to make the final roster.
Sat, May 1, 2010 09:52:00 PM

In addition to Brady Quinn, the Akron Beacon Journal also believes QB Brett Ratliff is now expendable.

The Browns are expected to draft a quarterback, possibly in the second or third round. They won't carry four quarterbacks, and Ratliff isn't one of Mike Holmgren's chosen ones.
Sat, Mar 13, 2010 09:38:00 PM

Coach Eric Mangini reiterated that third-stringer Brett Ratliff is not a candidate to take over as the Browns' starting QB.

Mangini seems to be leaning towards staying with Derek Anderson rather than benching the ineffective passer. Ratliff showed promise in the Jets' 2008 preseason, but isn't getting consideration to take over during the bye.
Tue, Nov 3, 2009 09:25:00 PM

Browns coach Eric Mangini shot down speculation that ex-Jet Brett Ratliff could be next in line for the starting quarterback job.

"No, he really just gets the [scout] team reps, the bulk of them," Mangini said. Ratliff won't be starting any time soon, so Brady Quinn will get another shot when Derek Anderson fails.
Thu, Oct 1, 2009 08:28:00 PM

Beat reporter Tony Grossi believes that Brett Ratliff could be a serious candidate to start in-season for the Browns if Brady Quinn and/or Derek Anderson struggle.

It sounds like Ratliff could pass Anderson at some point of D.A.'s constant miscues continue. Ratliff is still picking up the offense, but he's seen some first-team reps in camp. He is not a threat to start on opening day.
Sun, Aug 16, 2009 01:43:00 AM

Third quarterback Brett Ratliff was sprinkled in with the Browns' first-team offense at Tuesday morning's practice.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer guesses that coach Eric Mangini was just "throwing (Ratliff) a bone," but the former Jet took the offense 71 yards in less than one minute. Still, it doesn't sound like Ratliff is pushing to start yet.
Tue, Aug 11, 2009 01:15:00 PM

Browns coach Eric Mangini spoke highly of QB Brett Ratliff following Saturday's trade.

"We like his work ethic, his intelligence," he said. "You saw the two TD passes he had against the Browns [in preseason last year]. He's made substantial progress and that's encouraging." Ratliff is currently sitting at No. 3 on the depth chart.
Sun, Apr 26, 2009 09:14:00 AM

Browns acquired QB Brett Ratliff as part of a draft day trade involving USC QB Mark Sanchez.

Ratliff garnered some hype after an outstanding preseason last August, but he had already fallen behind Kellen Clemens in spring practices. He'll fall to No. 3 on the Browns depth chart behind Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson, but a Quinn trade could open up a shot at playing time. Eric Mangini obviously saw something he liked last year.
