New York GiantsÃ‚Â wide receiverÃ‚Â Victor CruzÃ‚Â cashed in this offseason with a huge contract extension, a six-year, $45 million contract extension.
Now, he’s intent on proving he’s worth the money
Cruz caught a touchdown pass against theÃ‚Â Pittsburgh Steelers, celebrating in the end zone with his trademark salsa dance.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yeah, you kind of feel good,Ã¢â‚¬Â Cruz told New York reporters. Ã¢â‚¬Å“You kind of feel like youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re still in the swing of it, you kind of still have your footing, you kind of still understand this offense. So it feels good to kind of be in, I guess, somewhat midseason form so early on.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã‚Â And the Giants’ receiving corps ofÃ‚Â CruzÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â Hakeem NicksÃ‚Â should spell trouble for opponents.
Just ask Cruz: Ã¢â‚¬Å“As long as we get out here and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all healthy, and on the same page, a lot of teams will have some decisions.Ã¢â‚¬Â
