Former first-round pick John Ross is reportedly nearing a return to the NFL.
Ross, who’s widely viewed as one among the more disappointing first-round picks in recent memory, is near recovering from a knee injury he suffered last yr.
When cleared, Ross – who most recently played for the Giants, but spent the primary 4 years of his NFL profession with the Cincinnati Bengals – expects to sign with a team ahead of the 2022 season. He’s attempting to revive his NFL profession.
“Former top-10 pick John Ross plans to start meeting with teams for workouts or visits around Week 1, per his agent, Brad Cicala, as he’ll soon be healthy off last yr’s knee injury,” said ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. “Should discover a team shortly thereafter. Several teams have remained in consistent contact.”
John Ross skyrocketed up NFL Draft boards due to a sensational season at Washington in 2016. The Bengals wound up taking the previous college star with the No. 9 overall pick within the 2017 NFL Draft.
Nevertheless, Ross didn’t catch a single pass during his rookie season and played in just three games. In his total five NFL seasons, the speedster has 62 catches for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns.
This will likely be Ross’ last likelihood to prove he’s worthy of playing within the NFL.
