Victor Cruz Player Overview

The former Giant missed the entire 2015 season with a torn patellar tendon. He came back in 2016, but wasn't the same player. The Giants cut Cruz, but he found a new home with the Bears. Even with a horrid receiving corp in Chicago, Cruz is not a lock to make the team. He’s only played 21 games in the past 3 seasons. Plus he’s on the wrong side of 30.
