The Lions reportedly took a look at a former first-round cornerback on Tuesday.
Ross, 31, played four games for the Giants in 2013, recording four tackles and intercepting one pass. The Giants placed him on injured reserve with a back injury in October.
Ross (6-0, 190) was the Giants’ first-round pick in 2007. He has intercepted 11 passes in seven NFL seasons, making 52 starts in that span. He’s had a pair of stints with the Giants (2007-2011; 2013) and a one-season run with the Jaguars (2012). He played on both of the Giants’ last two Super Bowl-winning clubs.
