Former Dallas Cowboys DT Jay Ratliff is making his rounds. He visited the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears and likely will visit another team before deciding where he would like to resume his career. The Bears and Chiefs evaluated Ratliff and he cleared their tests and he could be available to play in the next month or so. He could be back by December and throughout the playoffs.
The Cowboys released him after he and the team had a disagreement with his recovery from his groin injury. He underwent surgery for his injury last Decembet, but the team decided to release him after they had given him $18 million in guarantees. Ratliff also faces charges of driving while intoxicated.
Ratliff was seeing his own doctors and following the rehab assignments outside of the team. His doctors said that he would be out for at least 3 months. As soon as he was released, he was suddenly cleared to play football again. Some people believe that he didn’t want to play for Jerry Jones any more.
Who knows. Seems shady. Doesn’t seem to be a player that I would want on my squad.
