Looking for a playmaker at cornerback, the Jaguars reached a deal on Wednesday with free agent CB Aaron Ross. According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, the deal is for three years and will be worth up to $15.3 million with incentives.

Ross (6-0, 190) intercepted 10 passes in five seasons for the Giants. He started 15 games in 2011, recording 60 tackles, defending 12 passes and grabbing four interceptions.

Ross, 29, was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2007. He has made 41 regular-season starts. He was ranked No. 47 among PFW's top 100 free agents of 2012.

The way we see it

This is a solid move for the Jaguars, who were decimated by injuries in the secondary last season. With Rashean Mathis, 31, trying to return from a season-ending knee injury, Ross, a tough, versatile corner with plenty of starting and big-game experience, is a nice addition. When healthy, the Jaguars now have a strong CB stable, with Mathis and Ross joined by promising Derek Cox and dependable nickel Drew Coleman.
