After releasing safety Dawan Landry earlier on Friday, the Jaguars continued their house cleaning in the secondary by cutting cornerback Aaron Ross in a move that was first reported by Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
Ross, who signed a three-year deal worth $9.75 million with the Jags before last season after spending five years with the Giants, started nine games for Jacksonville in 2012. Ross recorded 37 tackles in 14 games – nine starts – last season. In six NFL seasons since being drafted 20th overall by the Giants in 2007, the 30-year-old has recorded 197 tackles and 10 interceptions.
He also started for the Giants team that won Super Bowl XLII.
