Victor Cruz says he has zero plans to retire

Victor Cruz

There has seemingly been very little interest in Victor Cruz on the free agent market this offseason, but the veteran wide receiver is not letting that rattle his confidence.

In a video he created for Bleacher Report’s Uninterrupted on Thursday, Cruz made it very clear that he is not going to be forced into retirement.

“I just want to clear up one thing. There’s one thing I’ve been seeing everybody saying on my Twitter, Instagram, whatever — I’m not retiring,” Cruz said emphatically. “This ain’t no retirement party. I’m playing football. I’m a football player. I want to join a team this upcoming week, God willing, and be a part of an organization to help win football games and ultimately win a Super Bowl. That’s my only goal.

“This ain’t over. It just started. It’s time to get back to it.”

Cruz will turn 31 in November and has battled a number of serious injuries in recent years, though he did appear in 15 games for the New York Giants last season. However, he was hardly as explosive as he was earlier in his career, catching just 39 passes for 586 yards and one touchdown.

We heard rumblings that one Super Bowl contender might be interested in Cruz earlier in the offseason, but nothing ever came of that. With the draft having come and gone, now is his best chance to sign with a team, likely for the veteran minimum.
