Found August 01, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Aaron Ross' return to the New York Giants seems to agree with the veteran cornerback. The 30-year-old Ross is back after a one-year stint in Jacksonville and has been one of the early surprises at training camp. In the first week of camp, Ross has intercepted two passes, defended a couple of others and been a presence for a secondary that gave up 254.3 yards last season, ranking 28th in the league. The way Ross is playing, there is a chance that he could push incumbent Corey Webster for a starting job. Webster struggled last season and agreed to a $3 million pay cut for the final year of his contract, lowering his salary to $4 million. Prince Amukamara is set at the other corner.
