Victor Cruz reportedly visiting with Jaguars
Victor Cruz’s old boss may have interest in working with him again, as the free agent wide receiver is scheduled to visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tom Pelissero of USA Today first reported that Cruz will meet with the Jaguars on Thursday, but another report claims the visit is not taking place until later in the month.

Yes, Victor Cruz will visit Jacksonville & Tom Coughlin.
But the visit is May 23, I'm told.

Either way, it sounds like new Jaguars head of football operations Tom Coughlin is willing to give Cruz a look. Coughlin coached the 30-year-old veteran with the New York Giants.
Cruz has battled injuries in recent years, though he appeared in 15 games last season. His production, however, was down quite a bit, as he caught just 39 passes for 586 yards and a touchdown.
While there has been very little interest in Cruz since the Giants parted ways with him, he recently took to social media to assure fans he has given zero consideration to retiring. A young team like the Jaguars would make some sense for Cruz.
