Giants release Victor Cruz after 7-year run, Super bowl ring

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants said goodbye to Victor Cruz after a seven-year storybook run during which he developed into one of the NFL's most feared receivers and a fan favorite, helping the franchise to a Super Bowl title before being slowed by injuries.

The Giants announced the parting Monday as they released the 30-year-old Cruz and starting running back Rashad Jennings in moves that will save the team roughly $10 million in salary cap space.

The moves came about a month after the players helped the Giants get back into the playoffs for the first time since playing in the Super Bowl in 2012.
