Ross Ventrone DB PIT Jan 02 '13
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.

Patriots DB Ross Ventrone is expected to open the year on the practice squad for the third straight season.
Ventrone is famous for being released and re-signed by the Patriots several times last year, and was moved off the active roster for the regular-season finale, likely in order to maintain his practice squad eligibility. Undersized for an NFL safety, Ventrone's value 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.

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.
