The Giants just released veteran wide receiver Victor Cruz in a salary cap saving move. While Cruz is past his prime, he says via the team’s official website that he still has a lot left in the tank.

I think I have a lot of good football left ahead of me,” Cruz said. “I think there is still a lot of miles left on this body. I’ll definitely be searching and looking for work as the time comes.”

The Giants freed up $7.9 million by releasing Cruz. New York also cut running back Rashad Jennings that saved another $2.5 million. Cruz did catch 39 passes for 586 yards and a touchdown last year and could conceivably return to the Giants at a reduced rate. If this is the last game Cruz has played for the Giants, He sounded incredibly thankful for his time in New York.

“It’s been an amazing journey,” Cruz said. “I pretty much grew up in front of the eyes of this entire organization. The Giants fan base, the community, my hometown, my family. I grew up there. It’s very much a family atmosphere and it’s very much like leaving your family. That’s what it feels like. I did some great things there. There are so many experiences, times and moments that I shared in that building with that team in that jersey. Those can’t be replaced or forgotten. I’m happy I have those moments to look back on.”
