Draft Scout Victor Cruz News
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."
