The Lions reportedly took a look at a former first-round cornerback on Tuesday.
Jason La Canfora of CBS reports free agent corner Aaron Ross tried out for Detroit yesterday.
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.
Chris Houston, Darius Slay and Bill Bentley are among the Lions’ primary options at cornerback.
