Redskins to check out Aaron Ross

On Day 1 of free agency, the Washington Redskins appeared hell-bent on addressing the offensive side of the football.

On Day 2, it looks like the organization is starting to think about the defense.

John Keim of the Washington Examiner reports that the Redskins are scheduled to meet with free agent cornerback Aaron Ross on Friday.

Ross—a five-year veteran out of Texas—started 41 games for the Giants since entering the league in 2007 as the 20th-overall selection. During that time, the 6-0, 190-pound corner has amassed 200 tackles and ten interceptions.

It’s a bit unclear at the moment how much cash Washington has left to spend this offseason after signing wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan on Tuesday, but playing in a loaded conference like the NFC East that features quarterbacks Eli Manning, Michael Vick and Tony Romo, a team like the Redskins can never have too many capable cornerbacks.
