Ross Ventrone is gone. Once again, he has been released by the New England Patriots. This is getting pretty ridiculous, isn't it?
Ventrone was set free for the seventh time this season, but really, we all know this isn't the end. Ventrone has been involved in close to 20 roster transactions since the start of this season, moving from the practice squad to the active roster and practically everywhere else.
However, the Patriots and Ventrone have an understanding, according to personnel director Nick Caserio, who said that the the team has informed Ventrone to be ready to come back at any time. And he'll be back, almost definitely.
Ventrone, a 5-foot-8 defensive back, is in his first NFL season and has played six games with the Patriots. While it's tough to see a hard working player like Ventrone come and go, you shouldn't feel too badly for him, as he's been making $8,820 per week to be on the practice squad - that's $458,640 year.
