Jacksonville Jaguars Sign Defensive Back Aaron Ross

The Jacksonville Jaguars have added some quality depth at the cornerback position.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jaguars agreed to a three-year deal worth up to $15.3 million with cornerback Aaron Ross.

Ross was a starter on the Super Bowl champion New York Giants last season, where he had 60 tackles and four interceptions.

At 29-years-old, Ross has spent his entire five year NFL career with the Giants, who drafted him in the first round of the 2007 draft.

Ross will be able to compete with Rashean Mathis and Derek Cox for a starting job, but with as fragile as the Jaguars cornerbacks have been recently his signing will at the least provide some much needed quality depth at the position.

The Jaguars still have needs that need to be addressed at the wide receiver and defensive end position before they take the field in 2012. Whether they will address those needs through free agency or will wait until the draft remains to be seen.
