Special teams standout Bubba Ventrone has reportedly been signed by the San Francisco 49ers. There he’ll re-join former Browns special teams coach under Eric Mangini, Brad Seely. It’s Cleveland Browns football, so talking about special teamers isn’t below us at all.1
Ventrone (and his flowing locks of hair) were a pleasure to watch on special teams over the last four seasons. He’ll also be re-united with Phil Dawson, who joined the 49ers this off-season as well as the recently hired consultant Eric Mangini.
No word on whether or not signing Ventrone was Mangini’s first bit of consulting as a member of the organization.
Our own TD has written multiple posts about The Core Four consisting of Jason Trusnik, Nick Sorenson, Ray Ventrone and Blake Costanzo. The “Tribute” is probably the most memorable.
