Draft Scout Victor Cruz News
05/25/17 - WR Victor Cruz has agreed to a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears, ESPN reported Thursday. Cruz, 30, spent his previous six seasons with the New York Giants, and he had big seasons in 2011, 2012 and 2013, catching 241 passes for 3,626 yards and 23 touchdowns in 46 games in those three seasons. But his production has decreased in recent seasons, largely because of injuries. He had 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown in 2016, when he appeared in 15 games, including 12 starts.
02/20/17 - WR Victor Cruz, released by the New York Giants last week as a salary-cap casualty, made a visit with the Carolina Panthers over the weekend. According to Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, the 30-year-old Cruz met with the Panthers and general manager Dave Gettleman, who used to work for the Giants. Cruz finished the 2016 season with just 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown in 15 games after coming back from major knee surgery.
02/13/17 - WR Victor Cruz was released by the Giants on Monday in a salary-cap move. The 30-year-old Cruz finished the 2016 season with just 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown in 15 games after coming back from major knee surgery. Cruz would have counted $9.4 million against the team's salary cap in 2017. The Giants will free up $7.5 million in cap space with his release.
12/23/16 - WR Victor Cruz went down a long road coming back from a knee injury that wiped out his entire 2015 season, and it wasn't lost on him that he was back at Lincoln Financial Field, where he was injured. That was why the touchdown he scored during Thursday's 24-19 loss to Philadelphia was such a memorable one. "It was an emotional moment, obviously, going back to where my injury first happened about two years ago," he said. "I just went to that corner of the end zone (where he was injured) and reflected on that moment. I went back to that same timeframe and how it felt and kind of wanted to just pay my respects to that moment and then move on."
11/17/16 - WR Victor Cruz (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's walk-through practice. Cruz is hoping to return to the lineup this weekend.
