Jaguars release Aaron Ross in secondary makeover

C.J. Spiller AP

The crop of available veteran cornerbacks keeps getting thicker, and the Jaguars secondary keeps getting thinner.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jags have released cornerback Aaron Ross, along with their earlier cut of safety Dawan Landry.

The 30-year-old Ross spent one year with the Jags, starting nine games. Along with free agents Rashean Mathis and Derek Cox (who are eligible to be tampered with at midnight), the Jags have a lot of holes to fill in the back of their defense.

The move creates more than $3 million worth of salary cap room for the Jags, who have plenty of uses for it.

    The Jags are horrible, they shouldn’t even be allowed to release players.

    Wonder if Dee Milliner is now in play at #2.

    Aaron Ross – Hot Garbage

    I feel bad for any team that signs that guy. He was outplayed last year by a third day draft pick that did not even start in college (Mike Harris from FSU).

    Hopefully they’re positioning themselves to retain CB Derek Cox.

    Milliner will now go to the Jaguars with their First round draft pick. I was hoping for him to drop to Buffalo at #8, but he is too consistent and talented to be passed by Jacksonville. I would have loved seeing Milliner and Gilmore back there with Byrd and Searcy though.

    When Ross was on the field last year he looked pretty lost and could not cover his own shadow. We all saw this one coming. Wish he had the speed of this gold medal winning wife.

    I don’t know much about the Jags roster but what are their plans? How do they expect to attract free agents if you cut them the next year or win a few games every year? I understand starting over but are they going to roll the dice with all rookies? Seems like the same logic is what got them here in the first place

    “Return to East Ruthorford?”

    Seconded, especially if the Giants don;t bring back Kenny Phillips.

    Why are my season tickets the same price after a 2-12 season AND losing a game to London?
