Victor Cruz‘s playing career might be over, but that doesn’t mean the former New York Giants wide receiver is done with the NFL.

A multitude of injuries derailed Victor Cruz’s career as one of the NFL’s most explosive—and entertaining—wide receivers. After getting cut by the Chicago Bears just before the regular season began and with no suitors for his services, the 30-year-old is now focusing more on the entertaining part of his profile rather than the explosive one.

Peter Schrager, one of the hosts of “Good Morning Football” on the NFL Network, announced on Twitter that Cruz would not only be joining that show, but some of the NFL Network’s other weekend studio shows as well.

In fact, we’ve already gotten a preview of what Cruz on GMFB is going to look and sound like:


One of the more affable and relatable players in recent history, Cruz always seemed destined for a job in sports media once his playing days were over. Now we’re left with just one question: How long before we see Cruz salsa all over the studio?
