Steelers Bring Back Ross Ventrone To The Practice Squad

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a practice squad roster move on Friday as safety Ross Ventrone was resigned and cornerback Brandon Jones was released. Ventrone was with the Steelers all throughout the offseason and the preseason, so this is a curious move to say the least. Jones had only been with the Steelers a short time.

Ross Ventrone Takes Part in 'Occupy Gillette,' Teammates Respond During Kenny Mayne's 'Mayne Event' (Video)

Patriots safety Ross Ventrone has been involved in 21 transactions this season, meaning his status typically varies week to week. That unpredictability was the subject of Kenny Mayne's recent "Mayne Event" segment. During the lighthearted ESPN skit, Ventrone set up an "Occupy Gillette" tent following his 20th transaction of the season. Mayne also sought the...

Bonus video of the day: Patriots yo-yo Ross Ventrone stars in the Mayne Event

The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl, and much of the attention will be on that. But allow us to divert a little bit. On yesterday’s pre-game show on ESPN, the much-anticipated Mayne Event feature starring Ross Ventrone aired. The human yo-yo, who has been cut and signed more than 20 times, comically sets up Occupy Foxboro with a tent and everything. Yeah, it’s pretty funny...

Ross Ventrone saga continues . . . yup, the Pats safety is gone again. But for how long?

The Patriots cut second-year safety Ross Ventrone.  As you know, we’ve already said that a few times this season. And we may do it again - and again - if he’s brought back in some capacity, which is usually the case. The human yo-yo has been bouncing between the 53-man roster, the practice squad, and the street. If our math is correct, that’s the 20th time Ventrone has been...

S Ross Ventrone cut again by Patriots

It's Wednesday, so it must be time for the New England Patriots to cut Ross Ventrone again. The Patriots released the safety for the seventh time this year, letting him go to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Donald Thomas. Two days ago it was the other way around: Thomas was released and Ventrone was promoted from the practice squad for Monday night's game against...

Patriots safety Ross Ventrone explains life as a human yo-yo

It’s become a running joke that each week the Patriots’ transactions are sure to include Ross Ventrone. The second-year safety could be signed to the practice squad, promoted to the active roster or released. But almost without fail, Ventrone is sure to find his name on the transaction wire each week. Ventrone has 21 career transactions, including 15 since Aug. 10. While it may...

Why Patriots S Ross Ventrone is an amateur when it comes transactions…

At this point, it’s a little funny. The Patriots, on a seemingly weekly basis, promote, cut, and/or activate safety Ross Ventrone. They did so again today, putting him on the practice squad and cutting Josh Victorian. People have asked if this is a record for transactions, since he’s been involved in ‘em on a non-stop basis. The answer? Turns out, he’s not even close. Compared...

The New England Patriots waive safety Ross Ventrone

The Patriots have waived 25-year old safety Ross Ventrone.  Ventrone played in 4 games for the Patriots this year and he had 1 tackle.  This is no loss for the Patriots and that’s really saying something considering  just how bad the secondary has been for them so far this year.
