The salsa dancing sensation that briefly took the New York football Giants by storm has found a new home in Chicago. Victor Cruz, the veteran receiver that was cut earlier this offseason by the Giants, signed a one year deal with the Chicago Bears today. This news pretty much came out of nowhere and would've been a bigger deal if he wasn't just a shell of himself last season. He blames the Giants for that. Yes, what do you know a former stud player that doesn't get what he wants from the Giants and then starts bitching about them. Tiki Barber knows a thing or two about that.
Basically, all Cruz said was the Giants conspired against him to not get him the ball so they wouldn't have to pay him incentives. He also said it'd make him easier to cut since he didn't produce as much. Fact of the matter is Cruz just isn't the receiver he used to be. He couldn't get open quick enough, he wasn't a red zone threat, and it just so happened they already had two better receivers on the team. Cruz can say what he wants, but it just isn't true. It's sad he feels that way. I wish him the best in Chicago and I know he'll always appreciate New York, however those unnecessary shots aren't going to sit well with the fans. Anyways, this is how we all found out Cruz would be playing in Chicago.
Cruz joins a force of veteran wide receivers that joined the Bears this offseason in an effort to replace the production of Alshon Jeffrey. Cruz looks to be the most elite receiver on their roster now besides for Kevin White, although no one knows if White is any good because he hasn't really played. Cruz should be able to put up big numbers this year since he'll be a top target, so we'll really get to see if he is the receiver he still thinks he is. That'll put an end to this debate that the Giants stopped giving him the ball, if he puts up big numbers than it's more likely to be true, if not he's just salty.
