After a one-year break to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars, cornerback Aaron Ross is coming back to New York.

The 30-year-old Ross, who was the Giants' first-round pick in the 2007 draft, is expected to sign with the Giants sometime in the next few days, according to two sources familiar with his situation. He will likely return to do battle with second-year pro Jayron Hosley for the Giants' nickel corner spot, playing behind starters Corey Webster and Prince Amukamara.

Terms of his deal were not immediately disclosed. Any agreement is pending a physical, which he is expected to take later this week.

The Giants had some interest in retaining Ross a year ago when he became an unrestricted free agent, but they let him go when the Jaguars offered him a three-year, $9.75 million deal. He played in 14 games for the Jags last season, starting nine. He did not have an interception.
