Ex-Giant Aaron Ross Reportedly Signs Three-Year Deal With Jaguars

NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Giants lost a fairly big piece of the puzzle on Tuesday, as cornerback Aaron Ross has agreed to a three-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the New York Daily News.

ESPN has reported that the deal may be worth as much as $15.3 million.

Ross, 29, was with the Giants from 2007 to 2011. The first-round pick out of Texas endured some highs and lows in his Big Blue tenure, but played an instrumental role for the Super Bowl champs last season.

Ross suffered several injuries throughout his five-year career in East Rutherford, but managed to play all 16 games last season, picking off a career-high four passes. He is the first Super Bowl starter from last year’s team to depart this offseason, as Mario Manningham, who signed with the 49ers, didn’t start.

With Corey Webster, recently re-signed Terrell Thomas and a recovering Prince Amukamara currently on the roster and set to be ready for the start of the season, the Giants likely didn’t feel the need to overpay for Ross’ services.

Is this a big loss for the G-Men, or did the front office do a good job by letting him walk? Sound off with your comments below…

    He got his ring now he’s got his money , good luck Aaron . Not really a lost for Big Blue . This position has some young legs waiting to show there stuff . Use that money for the OF line .

  • Curly

    As dealing with cap goes this was a good move.

  • George Jorn

    Not a big loss for the Giants. Ross was often injured and only above average when healthy…not enough production from a 1st round draft choice.
    Prince will come on strong this year.

    What a waste of money.

    Ross was below average with his man coverage skills. There is no question we are better off with Webster and Thomas as our starters. I agree with Michael V. save the money for another position.

  • Michael Valenti

    NOT a big loss!! Thomas coming back, Prince going to play a bigger role, not mention all the other cornerbacks that got injured. Position is deep, save the $ for other positions.

    this is a big loss for the G-MEN!!!
