Free agent Montee Ball was arrested Saturday night for violating his bail agreement.
It's a felony. Out on bail on domestic violence charges, Ball wasn't allowed to be drinking, but was spotted at a bar. When apprehended elsewhere, he was believed to be intoxicated, but refused a breathalyzer, prompting a blood draw. It's one more nail in Ball's NFL career. Apr 11 - 2:55 PM

Free agent RB Montee Ball was charged with strangulation, battery and disorderly conduct Thursday in connection with an alleged incident at a Madison, Wisconsin hotel in June 2014.

Ball's ex-girlfriend alleges he hit her with a phone and grabbed her throat before throwing her out of the room. The Patriots waived Ball last month after he was arrested for allegedly throwing his girlfriend into a table. Ineffective on the field and facing two abuse cases off it, it would be surprising if Ball ever plays another down in the NFL.

Patriots waived RB Montee Ball.

Ball wasn't believed to be on the roster, but signed a reserve/future contract on Feb. 1. He was arrested on domestic violence charges last Thursday. Largely out of the league last season, the 2013 second-rounder was reportedly overweight on the Patriots' practice squad. It appears Ball's career could already be over. He turns 26 in December.

Free agent RB Montee Ball was arrested Friday morning in Madison, Wisconsin following an altercation with his girlfriend.

Police were called to Ball's hotel around 3:40 a.m. after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend into a table. "The woman told police she had a dispute with her boyfriend," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. "She said he put his hands on her, picked her up and threw her." The woman reportedly suffered a cut that required stitches. Ball was taken to Dane County Jail on a tentative charge of "substantial battery." Ball spent time on New England's practice squad late last year, but didn't see any game action and was rumored to be significantly out of shape. It's quite possible Ball's NFL career is over.
Feb 5 - 2:22 PM

Patriots practice squad RB Montee Ball is reportedly heavier than 230 pounds.

When he worked out for the Packers two weeks ago, Ball was allegedly in the 240s. Ball came out of Wisconsin at 214, so he's considerably overweight. He's missing a golden opportunity with LeGarrette Blount (hip) done for the year. The Patriots may now be turning to street free agent Steven Jackson.

Patriots signed RB Montee Ball to the practice squad.

The news comes as LeGarrette Blount is on crutches with a hip injury. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the Packers were "unimpressed" with Ball's physical condition when he worked out 11 days ago. The ex-Bronco remains miles from fantasy relevance.

Free agent RB Montee Ball worked out for the Packers on Friday.

Ball has worked out for several teams since getting cut by the Broncos but hasn't found any takers yet. It's interesting timing after Eddie Lacy's mysterious benching Thursday against the Lions. Even if Ball signs, we'd still expect Lacy and James Starks to get most of the carries in Green Bay.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Bears are considering signing free agent RB Montee Ball.

John Fox is the only coach Ball has ever played for. He'd offer early-down depth while Matt Forte (MCL) rehabs. Even without Forte, the Bears have a crowded house at running back. Ball wouldn't be on the fantasy radar.

Free agent RB Montee Ball worked out for the Patriots Tuesday.

It's a noteworthy name, but we doubt a signing is imminent. Few teams are more meticulous about knowing the free agent market than the Pats. Bill Belichick is likely just updating his emergency list.

The Browns have interest in signing free agent Montee Ball.

Ball would be a logical fit for the Browns after trading Terrance West and showing interest in Ray Rice. He's reportedly considering offers from several teams. Ball would give Cleveland insurance for Isaiah Crowell.

Ex-Broncos RB Montee Ball went unclaimed on waivers.

It's a mild surprise, but speaks to how far Ball's stock has fallen. The Denver Post reports the diminutive third-year back has already drawn interest from multiple teams, including the Falcons. He'll likely crack someone's 53-man roster in the next week.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 05:45:00 PM

The Denver Post reports the Falcons have expressed interest in free agent Montee Ball.

Specifically, beat writer Troy Renck says the Falcons have "some" interest. Renck reports multiple teams have reached out. Ball would provide a rugged between-the-tackles element that Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman both lack, but has obviously been a plodder through his first two NFL seasons. At best, he'd be a part of a committee in Atlanta. It's possible he'd be little more than Week 1 insurance for Freeman, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

Broncos waived RB Montee Ball.

It was reported Saturday that Ball had survived the Broncos' cuts, but that was only true before GM John Elway went to work on the waiver wire. Elway presumably spent the past 48 hours exhausting trade possibilities on his 2013 second rounder. Ball has been a plodding disappointment as former UDFAs like C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson have surged past him on the depth chart, but there should be teams willing to take a flier on the running ability that made him a day-two pick. There's a strong chance he's claimed on waivers.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reported RB Montee Ball is not among the Broncos' final cuts.

Ball's roster spot seemed all but gone after a disastrous showing in the fourth preseason game, but Denver will keep the former second-round pick around for at least another couple days. Ball could still be cut once waiver claims begin this afternoon. The Broncos may also be holding out hope they can get something back for Ball on the trade market.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 12:40:00 PM

The Fort Worth-Star Telegram reports the Cowboys could have interest in Montee Ball if he's released.

The Cowboys should be smart enough to know Ball is very likely to be waived by the Broncos, whereafter they could acquire him without giving up a draft pick. The Cowboys are not interested in parting with compensation to acquire Ball. Ball remains likely to end up on another team's roster by Monday.
