NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – After a 2-14 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012, cornerback Aaron Ross is ecstatic to be back with the Giants for this upcoming season.

“It feels like I haven’t missed a beat,” the former Texas Longhorn told reporters. “Like I always said, the guys and the coaches accepted me from day one when I returned. The playbook hasn’t changed, so it feels great to be back.”

Ross was a first-round draft pick — 20th overall — by the Giants in 2007. He spent five seasons with Big Blue before being signed by the Jaguars as a free agent in 2012. But last year, the 30-year-old had 46 tackles, zero interceptions and Jacksonville tied for the worst record in the league. Ross was clearly eager to return to the Giants, as he signed a one-year contract with Big Blue four days after being released by the Jaguars.

His return to the Giants’ defense has been noticed in camp so far. He pulled down an interception during Wednesday’s practice, showing he can improve the G-Men’s secondary.

“He’s doing pretty good,” head coach Tom Coughlin told reporters. “Boy, that interception yesterday was really good, really good, so I like very much what I see. He really enjoys being back, and he has a big smile on his face. He’s worked hard, I like it.”

Partner cornerback Corey Webster said it was like Ross never left.

“It happened so quickly, it seems like he’s been here the whole time,” Webster told reporters. “We never really missed him, always kept up with him, whatever he had going on. We have a really close relationship on and off the field, but I’m happy to have him back and hopefully we can pick up right where we left off and get back to playing that style of football.”
