NEW YORK (WFAN) — Victor Cruz is eager to show off the Giants’ new offense.
But that doesn’t mean it was easy watching former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride exit East Rutherford.
The wide receiver admitted to WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Tuesday that Gilbride’s retirement “was definitely something that was hard for me to swallow.”
“It was a tough thing for me to hear,” Cruz said. “He was a guy who believed in my ability early on. Coming in as a rookie free agent, you have to have some guys that are in your corner, and he was 100 percent one of those people that really went out on a limb for me day-in and day-out, and really taught me how to play the game properly as a professional.”
