Giants Roster Breakdown: Aaron Ross

Aaron Ross is happy to be back with the Giants - Jim Rogash

Aaron Ross is next as we continue our breakdown of the New York Giants' 90-man roster.

Aaron Ross is back with the New York Giants after a season of self-imposed exile with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Let's look at what Ross might bring to the 2013 Giants as we continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

2012 Season In Review

Ross bolted the Giants after six seasons in favor of the Jaguars for a fat three-year, $15.3 million contract. Ross made some money, but the Jaguars were awful, going 2-14. He had 46 tackles, no interceptions and a -6.2 Pro Football Focus score in 14 games. He was cut by the Jaguars after a season he called "a nice paid vacation to Florida.'

2013 Outlook

The Giants quickly brought Ross, 30, back into the fold. He agreed to a one-year deal for $780,000 -- a far cry from the big money he signed for in Jacksonville.

Ross worked as the team's No. 1 slot corner in OTAs and mini-camp, and will compete with second-year man Jayron Hosley and perennial comeback kid Terrell Thomas for that role. He will also provide valuable depth on the outside in the event of injuries or poor play, and his familiarity with the Giants' defensive scheme is also a plus as the Giants work to eliminate communication breakdowns in the secondary.
