CB Aaron Ross Signs with Baltimore Ravens: Unrestricted free agent cornerback Aaron Ross has signed with the Baltimore Ravens. The Giants had no intention of re-signing their former 1st round draft pick who played with the team from 2007-2011 and then again in 2013 after spending one season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Ross was placed on Injured Reserve by the Giants in October 2013 with a back injury. Before going on IR, Ross played in four games with two starts, intercepting one pass. 

Because of this move, we have updated the Transactions, 2014 Free Agent Scorecard, and Free Agent Losses sections of the website.

New York Giants Sign RB Brandon Jacobs: The Giants have signed 31-year old RB Brandon Jacobs to a 1-year contract. Jacobs was drafted in the 4th round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Giants and played with the team for seven years from 2005-2011. He remains the fourth-leading rusher in Giants’ history with 4,849 yards. Jacobs played in two games with the 49ers in 2012.

“Whatever they need me to do,” Jacobs said. “Whatever role they want me to play, I’ll come in and do it. I know the offense. I know they’ve made some tweaks here and there, and I’ll do whatever I have to do. I look forward to teaming up with David (Wilson) and (Michael) Cox and Da’Rel (Scott) and Dre (Andre Brown) whenever he gets back and try to make everybody around us better. We want to be the group that leads the team to victory.

“The Giants have given me a great opportunity. This is where I wanted to be. These are the coaches I want to play for and I wanted to come back with my teammates. This is the place I love most. I’m ready to go. If I need to go Sunday, I can go Sunday. There’s no issue. I’ll be really excited. Now I just have to try to get Stevie Brown on the phone.”

S Stevie Brown is wearing Jacobs’ old number – #27. For now, Jacobs will wear #34.

The video of an exclusive Giants.com interview with Jacobs on his return to the Giants is available at Giants.com.
