Jaguars release Aaron Ross in secondary makeover

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.
