Aaron Ross heading back to Giants

The Giants won a pair of Super Bowls with cornerback Aaron Ross on the roster and they’ll try to go for the hat trick in 2013.

Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that Ross will return to the Giants a year after he left the team for the Jaguars as a free agent. Ross was released by the Jags last week, one of several veteran defensive backs thrown onto the market as teams prepared for free agency.

Ross will join a cornerback corps that features Prince Amukamara, Corey Webster (who took a pay cut), Jayron Hosley and Terrell Thomas, who signed a new deal with the Giants after missing all of the 2012 season with the third torn ACL of his career. There are no financial terms known on the deal, although it likely isn’t that much based on Ross’ work in Jacksonville last season.

Because Ross was released by the Jags, he didn’t have to wait for the start of free agency to sign with a new — or old as the case turned out to be — team. He didn’t beat the clock by much on that front, but he did beat it.

    The Eagles determined that he may go elsewhere. We get what we want. You all get scraps.

    The latest DB who will get owned by Pierre Garçon.

    He was a critical component of our stout 2-14 team last year.

    FlavorDave you haven’t learned yet?

    Q: Who is Pierre Garcon?
    A: 3rd string WR at best.

    Wouldn’t make most NFL rosters, unless your the Redskins, then he is the no. 1 option for Kirk Cousins. (RG3 won’t make it past week 6)

    Brutal. The worst part is he’s probably better than Webster.

    Another DB who will get burned by RG3 and the Redskins WR crew next year. No one could stop the Redskins this year. Here come 15 years of Super Bowl dominance. The best franchise in NFL history is getting better and better all the time.

    Its a shame that many intelligent comments get censored for no apparent reason yet every blog entry apparently now begins with 2 troll posts.

    As for this move, smart. I said it last year that the Giants should have kept Ross over Thomas. Ross knows the system, started staying healthy and was fairly solid. Last thing any Giant fan wants to see are a bunch of “Johnsons” filling in for injured starters in the secondary.

    flavordave you are embarrassing the rest of us Eagles fans

    Ross, Thomas, Johnson and anyone else the Giants put back there will be burned by RG3.

    Rumors out of offseason owners meetings is that the Giants were pushing to cut games against division opponents from 2 per year to 1. John “Sore Loser” Mara is afraid to lose to the Redskins twice a year. The Cowboys and Eagles would love it too.

    The Redskins are going to dominate the next 15 Super Bowls. No reason to even bother with an NFC East schedule.

    He was decent in 2011, I welcome him back. He wasn’t lost in coverage as much that season ha.

    When will fans like you learn? Giants fans whined and cried after the supposedly disastrous 07 and 11 free agencies, and we won it all. This is an era of slow cap growth. All teams have to prioritize and be responsible with spending or you’ll end up with the NYJ and PIT salary cap situations.

    We won Super Bowls with Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard. Stop fretting and trust the front office.
