On Thursday the Giants' released WR Brandon Marshall and the general speculation immediately was that the team might try and pursue ex-Cowboys WR Dez Bryant.
Well, there's another receiver that has noticed the opportunity. Free agent WR Victor Cruz tweeted that he heard there was an opening in New York.
I heard there's a job opening at wide receiver in New York.. 🤔- Victor Cruz (@TeamVic) April 19, 2018
Cruz, 31, played five seasons for the Giants and amassed back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns in 2011 and 2012 and missed a third consecutive 1,000-season by two yards in 2013, despite playing in only 14 games. Cruz suffered a torn patella tendon against the Eagles on Oct. 12, 2014 and missed the rest of the year and the entire 2015 season. He returned in 2016, totaling 586 receiving yards in 15 games. Cruz finished his career 10th on the Giants' all-time receiving list with 4,549 yards.
Cruz signed with the Bears before the 2017 season but was released on Sept. 2. Even though he missed the entire season for the second time in three years, he's still not ready to call it quits.
"I'm still training to play," Cruz said via Tom Rock of Newsday in January. "I definitely want to give it one more shot and see what football has in store for me. ... I just want to make sure that football is completely out of my system before I hang them up."
