Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz cut by Giants-- Mon Feb 13 2:00 pm --
Giants clearing cap space
The team released popular wide receiver Victor Cruz, the team announced Tuesday, marking the end of one of the more entertaining and improbable careers in Giants history.
The team also released running back Rashad Jennings. Cruz was due to earn $6.4 million in base salary in 2017 and $7.4 million in 2018 on his contract with the Giants.(Newsday)
FF Today's Take:Cruz had a limited role in the Giants offense last season (30 rec, 586 yds, 1 TD)... his first season since tearing his patellar tendon in 2014. He'll hit the free agent market looking for a No.2 role but will likely have to settle for something less. Jennings saw his snaps decline to rookie Paul Perkins towards the end of 2016. Perkins as the inside track on lead RB duties for the Giants next season.
