Giants release Victor Cruz but Eagles shouldn't sign him

NY will free up $7.5 million in cap space with his release.

Cruz, 30, was due to count $9.4 million against the cap next season and $8.5 million in 2018.

Cruz was released by the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

An already well-populated wide receiver labor pool in free agency just increased its population by one today as the New York Giants released Victor Cruz.

Cruz and his salsa dances following touchdowns were favorites of fans since he broke into the league in 2010.

Cruz's production has diminished since back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2011 and 2012. Cruz tore his patellar tendon after six games in 2014, which forced him to miss the rest of the season and all of 2015 after also suffering a calf injury as well. "I did some great things there".

In a season opening victory against the Dallas Cowboys, Cruz caught the game-winning touchdown. He followed that up with a 10-touchdown, 1,000-yard campaign the next year.

Kremlin says Turkey provided intel for 'friendly fire' strikes
A joint Russian, Turkish, and Iranian group was set up in Astana on February 6 to monitor the current ceasefire in Syria. Pahon also said that Turkish and US authorities have been exchanging views regarding al-Bab for months.

Cruz would bring championship experience and a professionalism that head coach John Harbaugh might like to see in his receiving corps.

"I pretty much grew up in front of the eyes of this entire organisation", Cruz said in a statement released by the team.

The soon-to-be 32-year-old running back lasted three seasons in the "Big Apple" after originally making stops with both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders along the way.

Cruz wore No. 3 that first training camp - also his college number - but switched to No. 80 once he made the team and could no longer wear a uniform number restricted to quarterbacks, kickers and punters.

It isn't to say that Cruz wasn't productive, just that the Giants' youth movement at wide receiver certainly foreshadowed that 2016 would be his swan song in Giants blue.

But I do think this is at least an option the Titans should consider. "I'll definitely be searching and looking for work as the time comes".
