Well, it has been a few weeks. And Ross Ventrone was likely getting restless. So, the Patriots accommodated him.
The Patriots announced today that Ventrone was promoted to the 53-man roster to fill a spot that opened up when they released DB Malcolm Williams. Ventrone was the choice, I’d think, for his special teams prowess and for what he can add at safety.
Patrick Chung stayed home with his foot injury, and Ventrone is insurance. He also provides more on special teams than Sterling Moore. For the human yo-yo, this is business as usual. Ventrone’s transaction total is up to 25 or so now.
Earlier in the month, Ventrone discussed his plight.
“To be bounced around like that, it is pretty unique,” Ventrone said. “Week-to-week I just look at it as hopefully I’m going to play. I’m going to prepare like I’m going to play. I don’t look at it any differently than I would if I was here the whole time, really.”
