Victor Cruz is feeling the itch.
As teams have gotten their offseason workout programs underway in the past month, the former New York Giants receiver is getting antsy as he awaits his next landing spot.
Cruz has no plans of retirement and expects to be in the league next season, but the wait has become a bother.
“I just want to play,” Cruz told Zach Braziller of The New York Post on Tuesday. “I’m just anxious to get on a team, anxious to play some football, and anxious to see where I end up.”
Cruz spent the first seven years of his career with the Giants after going undrafted in 2010. He dealt with a torn patellar tendon that hampered his production and playing time over the last three seasons.
The Carolina Panthers brought Cruz in for a visit in February and the receiver has had other teams show interest since, but nothing has come of it.
One team that may be interested is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who currently employ Cruz’s former head coach, Tom Coughlin, as their vice president of football operations.
“Any time you know someone and you know a coach like Coach Coughlin and you know his pedigree and what he’s about, for him to be on another team, you’re always for that opportunity,” said Cruz.
