Amidst a day of completely irrelevant news about the Jaguars and a player that shouldn't be mentioned as even a remote possibility for the team, the team actually made a move worth talking about. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars have reached a three-year deal with former Giants cornerback Aaron Ross worth up to $15.3 million.
Ross, 29, has spent his entire five-year career with the Giants after they selected him with the 20th overall selection in the 2007 NFL Draft, one pick before the Jaguars selected Reggie Nelson 21st. After making an early impact in his career, Ross was relegated to more of a reserve role in final two years in New York and started in 2011 only because Terrell Thomas was placed on injured reserve.
While the details of the contract have yet to be released, it can likely be assumed that the Jaguars have drawn up an incentive-laden contract for Ross, as they have attempted to do so for all the contracts they have agreed to this offseason.
