Victor Cruz tells TMZ Sports he still feels the itch to make an NFL comeback “to this day” … and says he’s confident he’s still got the skills to be a successful wideout in the league!!
“I still wake up thinking about it,” Cruz said of a possible return to the NFL. “I’m still in good shape. I can still run, jump and do all those things. Absolutely.”
Of course, 32-year-old Cruz hasn’t played a down in the league since 2016 … and he knows a comeback ain’t exactly probable.
But, Victor was one of the best receivers in the game for a few seasons … piling up 303 catches, 4,549 receiving yards and 25 TDs from 2011 to 2016.
So, could he REALLY make a run at a return?!?!
“Obviously, I know where I’m at in my life right now,” Cruz tells us. “I gotta pay the bills a different way.”
We also spoke to Cruz about the Giants, Jets and Bills … and he tells us why he’s putting the brakes on Josh Allen‘s claims that Buffalo is now New York’s team.
