Aaron Ross is returning to the New York Giants, getting 2013 NFL Free Agency off to a fast start.

Ross spent the first five seasons of his career with the Giants. He left for the Jacksonville Jaguars after the 2011 season, signing a three-year, $15.3-million contract. After one unsuccessful season with Jacksonville, the team cut him last Friday.

Various reports indicated that Ross will have to pass a physical with the Giants before the deal becomes official.

Ross played in 13 games for Jacksonville, starting nine. He had no interceptions, three passes defensed and 46 tackles.

In five seasons with the Giants, Ross, a first-round draft choice in 2007, had 10 interceptions.

He joins a secondary that will look very familiar with Corey Webster, Prince Amukamara, Terrell Thomas (if he is healthy) and last year's third-round pick, Jayron Hosley, at the corners.

Your thoughts, Giants' fans? Are you happy to see Ross back, or would you have preferred the Giants to have gone elsewhere for cornerback depth?
