Pats sign Ojinnaka, add Ratliff to practice squad
The New England Patriots have re-signed offensive lineman Quinn
Ojinnaka and added quarterback Brett Ratliff to their practice
The Patriots acquired Ojinnaka in a trade with the Atlanta
Falcons on Aug. 23 and released him on Sept. 30 before he played a
game for them. The Falcons had drafted him in the fifth round in
2006 out of Syracuse.
Ratliff was released from the Jacksonville Jaguars practice
squad on Sept. 27 after spending time with the New York Jets and
Cleveland Browns. The Jets signed him in May 2007 as a rookie free
agent out of Utah. He was on their practice squad that entire
season and their third quarterback in 2008. He was Cleveland’s
third quarterback for most of the 2009 season before being waived
on Sept. 4.
