The Cardinals and Ross agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. After releasing Michael Floyd in mid-December, the Cardinals brought in Ross as wide receiver depth. Ross made appearances in the final two games of the season, the latter of which he hauled in all four targets for 37 yards and a touchdown during a 44-6 romping of the Rams. His likely ticket to sticking in Arizona is his return ability, as the Cardinals ranked 16th in average kickoff return and 30th in average punt return in 2016.
Ross signed a contract with the Cardinals on Wednesday. Ross' signing comes in the wake of Michael Floyd's release. He'll initially slot in as no more than the No. 4 or No. 5 receiver on the depth chart, but could provide utility on special teams given his return capabilities.
Ross was waived by the Jets on Tuesday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports. Ross was on his third different stint with Jets this season, resigning with the team two weeks ago. He served primarily as a return specialist, averaging 20 yards on six kick returns Monday against the Colts.
Ross signed with the Jets on Tuesday. Ross was released by the Jets over a month ago, playing in only two games primarily on special teams. He could challenge Jalin Marshall and Quincy Enunwa for a role as a returner. The Jets released linebacker Taiwan Jones to make room for Ross on the roster.
The Jets released Ross on Tuesday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports. Active for two games as a Jet, Ross wasn't targeted but returned a pair of kickoffs for 52 yards. As a corresponding move, the Jets have claimed Jeremy Butler off waivers from the Buccaneers.
