“This is just another step to getting where I want to be at the end of my career,” said Cruz, who is 26. “I love to do well for my team and do well each and every year and continue to prove myself and not feel complacent and not feel I’ve done enough. I want to continue to have catches and yards and touchdowns and help my team win and get to the playoffs and get to the Super Bowl. To do that in such an early part of my career was outstanding, but you want more, you want to continue to feel that. The work is just getting started for me. It’s a whole new window of opportunity, a whole new world for me after this contract.” – Victor Cruz yesterday on signing a multi-year contract extension through the 2018 season (WATCH: Victor Cruz talks with Giants.com)
