John Ross has found his second NFL home.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports Ross will sign a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with the Giants. The deal includes $1 million in guaranteed money.

The Bengals’ No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 draft, Ross never found his footing in Cincinnati. He dealt with various injuries over the last four years, playing only 27 games in four seasons. He registered 51 catches for 733 yards with 10 touchdowns. His most productive season was in 2019, when he caught 28 passes for 506 yards — averaging 18.1 yards per reception.

But in 2020, Ross played only three games, catching a pair of passes for 17 yards. The Bengals had already declined his fifth-year option for 2021 and Ross posted on social media in October, “It’s no secret that I have requested a trade.”

Now Ross gets a fresh start with the Giants.

  1. not sure what this….hopefully a sign we’re going to draft jalen waddle lol…

  2. Worth a shot at that price. This might be his last chance to get things figured out.

  3. Nothing like playing with Daniel Jones to lift up your stock as a WR right? Bad move by John Ross.

  4. Hopefully he can have a better career there then he’s had with the Bengals. When he was healthy and had his head in the game he seemed to do well.

  5. Giants have about 16M in cap space. Galloday remains possible. Van Noy would need more money freed up probably.

  6. The Giants have 17 mill in space WITHOUT factoring in Leonard Williams. Galloday is a pipe dream for the Giants. We need a guard and a DT now to replace Zeitler and Tomlinson and we need money for the draft picks.

  7. That is a lot of money for an epic 1st round bust. The guy can run, but has hands of stone and no ability when tightly covered. Probably only good for covering punts and kick-offs.

  8. His hands are made out of cement, but that doesn’t matter to the Giants because Jones will never throw him a catchable ball.

  9. Yeah Giants don’t have lots of cap room but I wish they didn’t get him. I am not really sure how passionate he is about football.

  10. if there was no such thing as the route tree or defenses, he might be a good player.

    but there is, and he’s not.

  11. This is a good signing by the Giants. John Ross was in coach Taylor’s doghouse and never came out. That guy had a solid final season with Andy Dalton as QB. Ross has speed and IF he can stay healthy will be a steal for 2.5 million

  12. If this were the Patriots we’d hear all the Kool-Aid drinkers talk about how this is a great move yada yada yada.

    This guy has been a major bust. He’s either injured or does nothing. The fact that he was inactive for thirteen games for the Bengals tells you what they thought of him. Yet he asked to be traded. For what, a wooden nickel? Nobody wanted him.

    I have a feeling this is his last chance. Whether he realizes that or not is on him. It’s not that much of a risk but this guy has shown nothing so far. If this doesn’t pan out he’ll be out of the league. Then he can complain all he wants. His biggest claim to fame in the NFL was running that 4.22.

    Good thing for the draft. BJ Hill should be in line to start. OG/C (depending on where Gates plays) will be addressed in the draft. Golladay and a pass rusher are on their current radar. Adoree Jackson may make some sense.

  14. Good luck with that bust Giants. Will be injured by week 4 and give up on every play weeks 1-3.

    Signed,

    Bengals Nation.
