JOINS ESPN AS AN ANALYST.
Veteran wide receiver Victor Cruz made it official today that he is retiring from the NFL. Cruz, 31, last played in the league in the 2016 season as a member of the New York Giants, where he spent all six seasons of his career before being released last February.
Cruz made his retirement announcement today in UNINTERRUPTED and revealed that he’ll be joining ESPN as an analyst.
“As I officially close one chapter of my life and begin another, I could not be more thrilled to join another championship team at ESPN,” Cruz said in a statement. “I’m excited to get started and share my insight and analysis with the viewers and fans of the NFL.”
After being released by the Giants, Victor Cruz signed with the Chicago Bears, but was released by the team last September and didn’t play at last season.
Cruz is expected to make his ESPN debut on Wednesday.
