Aaron Ross calls season with Jaguars 'paid vacation'

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed cornerback Aaron Ross to a three-year, $9.75 million contract to play cornerback. Ross was an absolute disaster during the season however, playing soft and missing tackles. Ross was also routinely beat in coverage when playing on the outside.

He was quickly released after the start of free agency by new general manager Dave Caldwell.

Ross appeared on NFL Network's "NFL AM" show to discuss what went wrong during the 2012 season, but instead he let everyone know that he didn't try.

"It was a nice paid vacation to Florida," Ross said.

Vacation?

It might be a funny joke to Ross, but when players say those kind of things I don't think they realize how awful it comes off to the fans. This tells fans that you didn't care and didn't try. What are Giants fans supposed to think now? You'll suddenly try now that you got your paycheck?

Well, I hope Ross enjoyed his vacation. It was probably better than anything he put on the field in 2012.
