Giants’ Victor Cruz has firm grip on success

It would have been easy for Giants receiver Victor Cruz to fall into the same trap that a lot of young athletes do when they go from anonymity to stardom seemingly overnight.

Undrafted in 2010, the University of Massachusetts product barely made the Giants out of camp in 2011 as the fourth receiver. Then he exploded for 82 catches, 1,536 yards, and 9 touchdowns in the regular season. Cruz had another 21 catches in the postseason, including a touchdown against the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
