Ex-Giants CB Aaron Ross Will Join Baltimore Ravens During Mini-Camp on Tryout Basis

Unlike his former teammate Terrell Thomas, who continues to struggle in his quest for NFL employment, cornerback Aaron Ross has been given the opportunity to earn himself a job as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

The former New York Giants cornerback and two-time Super Bowl champion will join his former defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo, during their upcoming mini-camp on a tryout basis.

Ross, a first-round pick of the Giants in the 2007 NFL Draft, spent two stints with Big Blue — first from 2007 until 2011 and then again in 2013. In 2012, after leaving the Giants via free agency, Ross was signed to a three-year, $15 million deal by the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he was released after only one season with the team.

In addition to Steve Spagnuolo, who currently coaches the Ravens' secondary, Ross will find some familiarity with former teammate Sam Madison, who will also be helping to coach Baltimore's defensive backs throughout mini-camp after being hired as a part of the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship.

In addition to Ross, the Ravens have also invited veteran cornerback Drayton Florence to tryout during mini-camp, while having put in a phone call to the recently released Brandon Flowers.

Ross had previously worked out for the Detroit Lions.

    Good luck to him.

    So while it’s easy to write Aaron Ross off as some sort of a bust, and the boobie prize we took because Revis was off the board … the bottom line was that we won two Superbowls with him playing a significant role … while Revis caused trouble, killed coaches, and came away with nothing. I hope he sticks with the Ravens.
