Teams showing interest in former Cowboys DT Jay Ratliff
Several teams are monitoring Jay Ratliff's progress, who could be healthy enough to help a team for the stretch run.
Ratliff's agent, Mark Slough, announced recently that the former Pro Bowl defensive tackle would not be able to play football in 2013 following his release by the Cowboys. However, that status has changed following visits with a specialist and Ratliff was informed he could be cleared to play in a few weeks.
Several teams are monitoring the situation closely and it's possible Ratliff could help a team for the stretch run. Ratliff's play declined in recent years and he battled off-field woes.
Ratliff also received $18 million from Dallas not all that long ago and was a regular Pro Bowler as a 3-4 nose tackle prior to the Cowboys switching schemes.
