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.”
