(Anaheim) – The LA KISS have reacquired veteran quarterback J.J. Raterink, the League office announced today.
Raterink (6-2, 210, Wyoming) was traded by the Iowa Barnstormers to the Philadelphia Soul on Monday, completing future considerations from a previous trade, and then traded from Philadelphia back to LA to satisfy the future considerations portion of another prior transaction.
The fifth-year pro began the 2014 season with the KISS, completing 168-of-306 passes for 1,723 yards and 26 touchdowns with 16 interceptions in eight starts. He was traded to the Jacksonville Sharks in a deal that netted the KISS the AFL’s all-time passing leader, Aaron Garcia, in May. The Sharks subsequently traded Raterink to Iowa, where he saw action in six games, completing 101-of-163 passes for 1,320 yards and 22 touchdowns, with one interception and a quarterback rating of 118.7.
In addition to Raterink, the KISS also have Garcia and rookie quarterback Kenny Guiton currently on the active roster.
