Steelers waived or released S Ross Ventrone, LB Brian Rolle, TE Jamie McCoy, CB Josh Victorian, DE Brian Arnfelt and LB Alan Baxter.

Most famous for yo-yoing on and off the Patriots' 53-man roster, Ventrone will look for special teams work.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 03:51:00 PM

Steelers signed S Ross Ventrone, OT Joe Long, OG Justin Cheadle, WR Derek Moye, WR Bert Reed and CB Isaiah Green to reserve/future contracts.

Most famous for being yo-yoed off and on the Patriots' 53-man roster in 2011, Ventrone didn't appear in a game this season. He's unlikely to do so in 2013.
Wed, Jan 2, 2013 04:18:00 PM

Patriots waived S Ross Ventrone with an injury settlement.

It clears the way for Ventrone to begin the year on the practice squad. Ventrone was waived and re-signed an astonishing five times in 2011.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 11:57:00 AM

Patriots S Ross Ventrone is expected to open the year on the practice squad for the third straight season.

Ventrone is known for being waived and re-signed by the Patriots several times, and was moved off the active roster for the regular-season finale to maintain practice squad eligibility. Undersized for an NFL safety, Ventrone's roster status is entirely dependent on his ability to contribute on special teams.

Patriots signed S Ross Ventrone, WR Britt Davis, OT Matt Kopa, DE Aaron Lavarias, LB Markell Carter, and LB Mike Rivera to reserve/futures contracts.

The Pat essentially re-signed their practice squad with an invitation to offseason workouts and training camp. Ventrone was the ultimate roster yo-yo in 2011 while Carter's contract was doubled to keep him away from a poacher in December.
Tue, Feb 7, 2012 05:27:00 PM

Patriots waived S Ross Ventrone.

Absurdly, this is the sixth time Ventrone has been waived since August. He's made two tackles in eight games between all the comings and goings. Perhaps one day the waiver wire will be renamed the "Ventrone wire."
Mon, Dec 26, 2011 04:27:00 PM

Patriots promoted S Ross Ventrone from the practice squad.

Another week, another promotion for Ventrone, who has tallied one tackle in six games while being shuttled back and forth between the active roster and practice squad. He's a good bet to be waived next week.
Sat, Dec 17, 2011 04:17:00 PM

Patriots waived S Ross Ventrone.

This is getting comical. It's the 17th transaction involving Ventrone this year. His roster spot this week is likely needed for offensive line help after LT Matt Light went down against the Chiefs.

Patriots promoted S Ross Ventrone and waived OL Donald Thomas.

Thomas wound up appearing in four games for the Pats, starting none. Ventrone figures to be active for Monday Night Football to play on special teams.
Mon, Nov 21, 2011 05:36:00 PM

Patriots waived S Ross Ventrone.

Ventrone has seen time on special teams in five games this season. He's also been involved in 14 transactions. As John Sarmento of 2 Mugs Fantasy Football put it, Ventrone has been released "more times than an undersized trout."
Tue, Nov 15, 2011 04:29:00 PM

Patriots re-signed S Ross Ventrone.

This is the fourth time since September 24 the Patriots have signed Ventrone. He's notched one tackle in four games this season. His signing could be an indication the Pats are worried about S Pat Chung's (foot) status.
Sat, Nov 12, 2011 03:41:00 PM

Patriots waived S Ross Ventrone.

This marks the third time Ventrone has been waived by the Patriots since August. He's notched one tackle in four games this season. As long as he clears waivers, he should be headed back to the practice squad.
Thu, Nov 3, 2011 04:25:00 PM

Patriots re-signed S Ross Ventrone.

A small drink of water at 5-foot-8, 190, Ventrone has been on and off the Patriots' roster all season. He'll cover kicks if he's active after the bye.
Wed, Oct 19, 2011 01:12:00 PM

Patriots re-signed S Ross Ventrone.

Ventrone was waived just last Saturday, but cleared waivers and was re-signed to the Patriots' practice squad. If he's active against the Jets on Sunday, he'll be making his NFL debut.
