Before Odell Beckham jumped on the scene, Victor Cruz was the man on the New York Giants.
Cruz was a true Cinderella story. The Paterson, New Jersey worked his way from the practice squad to a starting wide receiver spot on the Giants. He dominated in the early part of his career, but has been hampered by injuries the past two seasons.
No Cruz is at a critical juncture in his career, as the Giants are looking for him to take a pay cut. If not, they may let him go.
The Giants are in negotiations with agent Tom Condon regarding Cruz, who has been told he will be released unless his contract is renegotiated, the source said.
The combination of a healthy Cruz and Beckham could be one of the best wide out duos in the NFL.
He could be the star on a couple teams, (49ers, Rams, Titans come to mind) the question is: Does Victor Cruz want to start over in another city at this point in his career?
