WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY) — Defensive tackle Jay Ross was released by the Green Bay Packers prior to the start of the 2011 NFL regular season. The former New Hanover Wildcat had worked out for three pro teams since his release from the Super Bowl champions: Tampa Bay, Miami and Oakland. He’s about to have another one. Ross is headed to Buffalo in order to have a workout with the NFL Buffalo Bills.
Ross played college football at East Carolina. The Wilmington resident spent the majority of the 2010 NFL season as a member of the practice squad for the Green Bay Packers.
