| Victor Cruz has not played in an NFL game since 2014 as a result of a torn patella tendon which was then followed by a torn calf while rehabbing the patella injury. After bursting on the scene as an unheralded second year player in 2012 (82-1536-9), itís been a steady decline for Cruz and the feeling among the Giantsí brass is that anything they get from him this season will be a bonus. The talk is optimistic about Cruz returning for the start of training camp, but itís hard to imagine that heíll ever be the same player again. If he does regain his health, Cruz should see most of his playing time in the slot, a place where he has shown to be effective in the past and where he would not need to be as explosive.
|Brandon Marshall set to join Giants|
Two-year $12 million

|Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is done with the Jets, but he'll reportedly still be playing his home games at MetLife Stadium. According to multiple reports, Marshall has agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal to join the Giants as a free agent. (ProFootballTalk)|
FFToday's Take: With Victor Cruz a free agent the Giants will sport a receiving corps of Odell Beckham Jr., Marshall and Sterling Shepard. Marshall will give Eli Manning another viable weapon on the outside and provide some much needed relief for Beckham. Marshall is coming off his worse season as a pro since his rookie year but will be valued highly by fantasy owners as a rebound candidate.
|Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz cut by Giants|
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)|
FFToday'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.
