Victor Cruz was once one of the biggest names in football, now his teammate Odell Beckham Jr. has surpassed him. That is because Cruz has been bitten by the injury bug. Well Cruz has really dropped off since his stellar season in 2012 when he earned a nod to the Pro Bowl.
The former undrafted free agent that signed with the Giants after getting axed by the New York Jets out of UMass, is very confident he will be back in New York salsa dancing this year.
Victor Cruz remains optimistic he’ll be with #Giants this season. Puts his confidence level at “80 percent.”
That number’s not a coincidence

The Giants gave Cruz a monster contract, and then he was struck by the injury bug. Cruz has since struggled to get on the field.
