New England Patriots Sign Safety Ross Ventrone (Yet Again)

Just when we thought he was gone for good, Ross Ventrone is once again a New England Patriot. On Saturday, the team announced to the public that they had once again signed the safety from the practice squad. We've honestly lost count of what Ross Ventrone transaction we're at at this point in time. (It's actually his 19th transaction to be exact)

With Patrick Chung officially out for the team's game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Ventrone could provide some much safety depth and could even get some playing time along with James Ihedigbo in the Patriots secondary. 

Ventrone, 25, has spent time on both the Patriots' 53-man roster and the practice squad. The second year safety out of Villanova University has played six games thus far for New England this season. For Ventrone, it's been a season full of bouncing around and a lot of uncertainty, something he seems surprisingly comfortable with.

"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." (via Boston Herald)
