Wide receiver Victor Cruz announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday and is joining ESPN as an NFL analyst.
Cruz made the announcement in a video on UNINTERRUPTED.
He was a force for the New York Giants from 2011-13, a time span in which he caught 241 passes for 3,626 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Just saw that Victor Cruz is retiring. (And joining ESPN.) Congrats on a great career! NY Giants fans in particular thank you! I'd do a salsa as a tribute. But I can't dance. So this will suffice. pic.twitter.com/3Qrdee4dNU

He also had a strong playoffs after the 2011 season: He had 21 receptions for 269 yards in four games and caught a touchdown pass in the Giants’ 21-17 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. He’s really best known for his SALSA Style TD Celebration. That put him on the map. Congrats on retirement.
