EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – It’s possible no player is happier to be here than cornerback Aaron Ross, who returned to the Giants after a season in Jacksonville in which the Jaguars went 2-14.

“It feels like I haven’t missed a beat,” Ross said. “Like I always said, the guys and the coaches accepted me from day one when I returned. The playbook hadn’t changed, so it feels great to be back.”

Ross intercepted a pass yesterday and was a noticeable presence in practice today.

“He’s doing pretty good,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “Boy, that interception yesterday was really good, really good, so I like very much what I see. He really enjoys being back, and he has a big smile on his face. He’s worked hard, I like it.”

Ross and fellow corner Corey Webster were inseparable before the former’s season in exile and both are excited about their reunion.

“It happened so quickly, it seems like he’s been here the whole time,” Webster said. “We never really missed him, always kept up with him, whatever he had going on. We have a really close relationship on and off the field, but I’m happy to have him back and hopefully we can pick up right where we left off and get back to playing that style of football.”
