The team announced Thursday that they have released veteran defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff and signed former first-round pick Ziggy Hood.
Ratliff missed the first three games of the season with a suspension and missed the fourth week with an ankle injury, but returned to start the last two games. He had eight tackles in those appearances.
Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Ratliff was escorted from the team’s facility by team security on Wednesday after an “animated exchange” with General Manager Ryan Pace. It’s unclear whether that happened before or after the team decided to part ways with him, but if it was the former it couldn’t have helped his chances of remaining employed.
“We felt moving forward without Jeremiah was in the best interest of our team,” Pace said in a statement on Thursday.
