The Patriots’ release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots have signed quarterback David Greene and defensive back Ray Ventrone to their practice squad. Additionally, the Patriots have released offensive tackle Clint Oldenburg from their practice squad. The Patriots practice squad now stands at its limit of eight players.

Greene, 25, was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round (85th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft from the University of Georgia. The 6-foot-3-inch, 225-pound quarterback has not played in an NFL game and served as the Seahawks’ third quarterback for 28 of 32 games from 2005-06. He was Seattle’s backup quarterback for four weeks of the 2006 season while starter Matt Hasselbeck was injured. Greene was released by the Seahawks on Sept. 2, 2007. At Georgia, Green became the winningest quarterback in NCAA history, with his 42 career victories as a starter passing Peyton Manning’s previous record of 39.
