A person with knowledge of the deals says cornerback Aaron Ross and halfback Ryan Torain have agreed to contracts with the New York Giants.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Giants haven't announced the deals.
A first-round pick by New York in 2007, Ross signed with Jacksonville after the Giants won the Super Bowl in February 2012. The 30-year-old was cut by the Jaguars after last season.
Corey Webster and Prince Amukamara started for New York last season. Ross and second-year pro Jayron Hosley are now the team's other cornerbacks.
Torain was signed by the Giants in late November after Andre Brown broke his leg. Starter Ahmad Bradshaw was recently cut and second-year pro David Wilson will be the starter.
