CB Aaron Ross

Q: How's your leg feeling?

A: Last year, any sudden move, I was scared my hamstring was going to go at any moment. This year, I put in the work, I put in the time to get my hamstring healthy. I'm feeling healthy. Everything's going really, really good for me right now. I'm just ready to go.

Q: How are you adjusting to the new defense?

A: I'm loving it. The new defense, it seems like it fits me really well. I have a chance to get my eyes back to the quarterback and that's something I like to do. Make plays on the balls and coach Fewell, he's a DB coach at heart. I'm loving every moment of it now.

Q: Are you able to guess or make plays on the ball? You're able to play a little cat and mouse?

A: Exactly. You can gamble a little bit more in this defense. Last year's defense was more press, man-to-man in your face type. There wasn't too much gambling you could do. You basically just had to make a play on the ball. This year, you can sort of read route combinations and just go and be a DB and gamble.

Q: Do you have to know where the guys behind you are? You can't gamble that much, can you?

A: If you don't gamble you'll never make a play. That's something that I think they drafted me for. For being a gambler, making plays on the ball. That's what I'm going to keep doing.

Q: From a distraction standpoint there hasn't really been any this camp. Everyone's talking about the Jets a lot. Does that bother you?

A: No, not at all. We just have to worry about what we're doing. If we take care of our business I believe we will be a top notch defense in this league this year.
