Quarterback Brett Ratliff is a professional football player who is presently a free agent in NFL. He played his college ball at Utah. In 2007, after not getting picked in the NFL Draft, he was signed by the New York Jets fourth on their depth chart.

At Utah, his passer rating was 137.8. He tossed 31 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His total yards through the air equaled 3,438 and his completion rate was 59.0-percent. After being waived on 1st September, 2007 by the New York Jets, he was re-signed to their practice squad after two days where he spent his entire season. By 2008, Brett was the third string quarterback for the entire season.

He got traded to the Cleveland Browns on 25th April, 2009 and played under Eric Mangini, the head coach. In 2009, he was also the third string quarterback for second consecutive season and got waived by the Browns on 4rth September, 2010.

The next day, the Jacksonville Jaguars team signed him to their practice squad, though he was released on 27th September, 2010. After a few days, on 7th October, he was signed to the New England Patriots squad. But four days later, he was signed off this team and traded with the Browns team. Eventually, he got waived from this team too on 16th November, 2010.

Ratliff, who stands six-foot-four and weighs 235 pounds, is good-sized for a NFL QB. He’s got a good arm and is able to connect readily on short range and intermediate routes. He’s not the most mobile quarterback and needs time to setup in the pocket. Ratliff is not a threat to run. He’s big enough to see passing lanes but needs to develop NFL smarts and understand pro schemes. He could become a number two passer.
