Victor Cruz expected to sign with Bears

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Chicago Bears and free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz have agreed to terms on a one-year deal on Thursday. However, the deal may not be signed for "a few days."

Fantasy Impact

Cruz, who spent the bulk of the offseason in search of a new suitor after being released by the Giants, agreed in principle to a deal with the Bears Thursday. The oft-injured wideout has a realistic opportunity to find himself in a prominent role in Chicago for the upcoming season as the Bears need help at receiver. Expect Cruz to open the 2017 campaign as one of Chicago's top three receivers if his health remains intact.

Victor Cruz will visit with Jaguars

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz will visit with the Jacksonville Jaguars on May 23.

Fantasy Impact

Along with Jacksonville, Cruz is reportedly linked to the Ravens as well. Both teams and the free agent wideout have a "mutual interest" in each other. The oft-injured Cruz is expected to land with a club in time for the start of training camp in July. From a fantasy football perspective, Cruz will have greater value if he signs with Baltimore as there is a need at wideout in the wake of Steve Smith's recent retirement.

Victor Cruz receiving interest from Broncos

ESPN Broncos senior writer Jeff Legwold reports that the Denver Broncos have already expressed interest in free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz was released by the Giants only two days ago, so Cruz should be feeling optimistic that a team is expressing interest in him so quickly. He has a lengthy lower body injury history and appeared to be sap of his explosiveness last season, so it's fair to wonder how much he could contribute with another team.

Victor Cruz cut by Giants

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports the New York Giants have released wide receiver Victor Cruz on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz, 30, has been cut by the Giants Monday. The injury-prone wideout attempted to rejuvenate his career last season, but he struggled on a Giants offense that features both Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard ahead of him. If Cruz can continue to maintain his health, he'll likely sign an incentive based contract this offseason with a new club with the hopes of extending his career.

Victor Cruz could be released this offseason

James Kratch of NJ.com reports "there's a very strong possibility" that New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz becomes a salary cap casualty this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

With Sterling Shepard taking over as the Giants' No. 2 receiver behind Odell Beckham, Cruz could be released in the offseason to open up salary cap space. Beat reporter James Kratch cites the veteran wideout's inability to play special teams as a reason for his possible release. If he is indeed cut, the Giants will save $7.5 million against the cap.
