Attempting NFL comeback

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-28

Ross is set to participate in rookie minicamp with the Eagles on a tryout basis after announcing his retirement last year, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Ross announced his retirement at the start of training camp last year after initially signing a reserve deal with Kansas City. He was waived from the Chiefs' reserve/retired list in late November and became a free agent, and he now appears to be interested in reviving his NFL career. Ross' most recent action came in 2021 with the Giants, when he played in 10 games and recorded 11 receptions on 20 targets for 224 yards and a touchdown while adding one rush for 16 yards.

Set to become free agent

The Chiefs waived Ross from their reserve/retired list Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Ross now wants to return to the NFL after temporarily retiring back in July. He hasn't suited up for a regular-season game since 2021, but his unique speed could get him a second look.

Ross was placed on the Chiefs reserve/retired list on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The ninth-overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft has decided to call it a career after not appearing in an NFL game since 2021. Ross set the combine record for fastest 40-yard dash (4.22 seconds) and was named a second-team All-American in his final year at Washington. The speedster's most productive season was in 2019, when he caught 28 passes for 506 yards and three touchdowns. Injuries plagued his career, as he only appeared in 37 games for the Bengals and Giants over his five years on an NFL active roster.

Signed to reserve deal by KC

The Chiefs signed Ross to a reserve/future contract Monday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Ross landed this deal with Kansas City shortly after coming in for a tryout with the team Monday, according to Field Yates of ESPN. The 2017 first-round pick did not appear in a game during the 2022 regular season, as he went unsigned for the duration of this campaign. While the Chiefs are set to play during the divisional round of the playoffs, this deal for Ross will not go into effect until the team's roster size increases beyond the 53-man limit this offseason. Ross last appeared in 10 games for the Giants in 2021, recording 11 receptions (on 20 targets) for 224 yards and a touchdown, and the speedster should compete for a role as a vertical threat heading into the 2023 campaign.
