WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) - Last week when WWAY did a lengthy feature on Wilmington's Jay Ross, he didn't appear to be down in the dumps, but then again he wasn't thrilled to be cut by the NFL's Buffalo Bills.
Just one week later Ross received the news he was hoping for. The team wants the New Hanover High graduate back. Ross is expected to sign with Buffalo on Tuesday. They'll place him on their practice roster. Buffalo opens the 2012 regular season this Sunday on the road against the New York Jets.
Green Bay released Ross prior to the start of the 2011 regular season. The 6'3", 302-pound East Carolina product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with New Orleans in 2010.
Ross had 140 tackles in 52 college games for the ECU Pirates.
Buffalo originally signed Ross in October of 2011. He stayed on the Buffalo practice roster for the remainder of the season. The Bills cut the Wilmington resident August 26. Just over a week later, he's back.
