Former New York Giant, Victor Cruz, is getting frustrated as the wide receiver still remains a free agent after the Giants cut him after 6 seasons. Cruz went on 105.1 claiming the Giants deliberately kept the ball away from him last season to cut him:
“I felt it all year long.
Halfway through the year I’m ballin’, the other half I’m not getting the ball. And you’re just like, ‘what’s going on?’ It was like ‘ok, I see what’s happening. They don’t want me here anymore.’ A lot of people probably don’t know this, . . . Let’s say I played well – was a 1,000-yard receiver last year – it would have been more difficult from a fan perspective to cut me. . . .
If I am a 1,000-yard guy, they’re like ‘why are you cutting Cruz? He just 1,000 yards and five or six touchdowns. That doesn’t make sense.’ But if I have 500 yards or whatever the case may be, it’s a little easier on the fans.”
Cruz won a Super Bowl with the Giants and was their top receiver until injuries and current star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
