Free agent CB Aaron Ross worked out for the Rams.

Ross spent 2014 on I.R. with a torn Achilles. His health status remains a question mark. Ross would compete for one of the Rams' final cornerback spots.
Jun 19 - 7:35 PM

Ravens placed CB Aaron Ross on injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon, ending his season.

It's a procedural move after Ross tore his Achilles' on a conditioning test earlier this week. He's done for the year and will struggle to attract interest next offseason as a 32-year-old coming off a major injury. Dominique Franks will compete for Baltimore's No. 5 corner job.

Ravens CB Aaron Ross tore his Achilles' tendon during a conditioning test.

He'll be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. Ross missed most of last season due to a back injury. Going on 32, he's nearing the end of the line. Ross wasn't a lock to make the Ravens' roster anyway, as he would have fought for a depth job behind Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson.

Ravens signed CB Aaron Ross.

Ross appeared in only four games for the Giants last season before landing on injured reserve with a back injury. He worked out for the cornerback-needy Lions in April, but had otherwise drawn zero interest in free agency. Going on 32, Ross is just a depth signing.

Free agent CB Aaron Ross will participate in Ravens minicamp on a tryout basis.

Ross worked out for the Lions in April. It's probably telling that corner-needy Detroit didn't sign him. Now going on age 32, Ross was a slot corner and punt returner in his prime. He's quite a ways removed from those years.

Free agent CB Aaron Ross worked out for the Lions on Tuesday.

It's Ross' first-known visit. Back with the Giants last season after a one-year sabbatical in Jacksonville, Ross appeared in only four games before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. He'd be a piece of veteran depth for the Lions' unsettled secondary.

Giants placed CB Aaron Ross on injured reserve with a back injury, ending his season.

It's a surprising move, but Ross was dealing with at least a multi-week back injury and the Giants couldn't afford to keep him on the active roster. CB Charles James is being promoted from the practice squad, while FS Will Hill has been reinstated from suspension. Ross, 31, will finish 2013 with four tackles and an interception over four games (two starts). He'll be a free agent again this offseason.

Giants CB Aaron Ross left Sunday's Week 4 game against the Chiefs with a back injury.

Ross is officially doubtful to return. He was doing a solid job on Dwayne Bowe for much of the day.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 03:42:00 PM

Giants CB Aaron Ross will get the start opposite Prince Amukamara this week versus Carolina with Corey Webster (hip, doubtful) likely to sit out.

Ross, 31, has 50 career starts under his belt, starting nine games for Jacksonville last season a year after registering 15 starts for the Giants. However, he's coming off a Week 2 loss to the Broncos where he didn't play a single snap. Ross then said he didn't know what his role was with the team. This is shaping up as a stellar matchup for Cam Newton and Steve Smith.

Appearing on NFL Network's NFL AM program Friday morning, Giants CB Aaron Ross said he signed with the Jaguars last offseason only for the money.

"It was a nice paid vacation to Florida," said Ross, who collected over $2.25 million of a deal alleged to be worth $9.75 million over three years. He was released on March 8. "So yeah, I’m very happy to be back with the Giants," added Ross. He's back with the G-Men on a one-year deal for the minimum salary.

Giants signed CB Aaron Ross, formerly of the Jaguars.

The Giants are bringing back the player they made the No. 20 pick of the 2007 draft after he spent one (unsuccessful) season in Jacksonville. Ross started 15 games for the G-Men in 2011, but may begin no higher than fourth on the depth chart. Going on 31, Ross had a rough go of it in coverage last season.

Jaguars released CB Aaron Ross.

The move saves over $3 million in salary cap space. Ross was just one year into the three-year, $9.75 million pact he signed last March. He started nine games in 2012, but wasn't effective. Ross was benched twice, and didn't start after Week 13. By releasing Ross, the Jaguars have just Mike Harris and Kevin Rutland under contract at cornerback. They could be ready to spend in a deep corner market, or perhaps even draft Dee Milliner at No. 2.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 01:04:00 PM mentions CB Aaron Ross as a candidate for release.

The Florida Times Union mentioned Ross' name as a cap casualty last month. Ross is set to count just over $4 million against the cap in the second year of a three-year deal. The Jaguars have just three corners under contract for 2013, and Ross could stick with coach Gus Bradley liking his corners tall and lanky.

The Florida Times Union mentions CB Aaron Ross as a candidate for offseason release.

Ross signed a three-year deal with the Jaguars last offseason, but he started just nine games as he battled various nicks and dings. He's set to count $4 million against the cap in 2013. The Jaguars could experience a complete overhaul in the defensive backfield. Three of their top four corners are free agents.
