Cornerback Aaron Ross agrees with Jaguars after visiting Redskins

Free agent cornerback Aaron Ross, who visited the Washington Redskins last week, agreed to a three-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, a person familiar with the negotiations said.

The deal could be worth as much as $15.3 million, the person said.

Ross visited the Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals last week. He’d spent his first five NFL seasons with the New York Giants, with whom he won two Super Bowls.

Ross, 29, had a career-best four interceptions last season while making 15 starts in 16 games. He had 10 interceptions during his Giants tenure, including three in each of his first two seasons.


The Redskins already have begun to remake their secondary. They agreed to a contract Friday with free agent cornerback Cedric Griffin, one day after adding free agent safety Brandon Meriweather.
