Bears cut argumentative Jeremiah Ratliff, sign Ziggy Hood

The Chicago Bears cut defensive lineman Jeremiah Ratliff and signed defensive tackle Ziggy Hood. Ratliff got in an argument with general manager Ryan Pace. “We felt moving forward without Jeremiah was in the best interest of our team,” Pace said in a statement released by the team. “We appreciate his contributions and wish him well.” Ratliff was suspended for the first three games of the season for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy stemming from a driving under the influence charge. aaron.wilson@chron.com twitter.com/AaronWilson_NFL
