Veterans Rashad Jennings and Victor Cruz say goodbye to teammates. Could either player help the Tennessee Titans?
After forming a brotherhood with the New York Giants, running back Rashad Jennings and wide receiver Victor Cruz separated from a family on Monday February 13, 2017. Cruz and Jennings were released by the team. It’s fair to wonder if Cruz might be an option for the Tennessee Titans.
It has been an emotional past few days as Giants teammates prepare to go on without two key players. Former teammates Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard graced Cruz’s exit with heartfelt messages. The three were close and made a dynamic trio that only the New York Giants offered.
There is no doubt about the level of greatness these two players own. They have accomplished a lot for the team. Apparently the numbers did not add up, leading to the two players getting cut.
Despite Jennings being the leading rusher of 2016, Paul Perkins managed to outshine the incumbent starter. Jennings only played three seasons with the Giants. His career total equals 3,772 rushing yards and 25 scores.

Cruz, however, had been on a roller coaster ride during his time the Giants. He entered as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Cruz played six seasons with New York. He missed some of the 2014 season and all of the 2015 season due to injuries. Cruz finished his career with the Giants with 303 regular season catches and 25 touchdowns.
In 2014, Cruz tore his patellar tendon and missed the last 10 games of the season. He also missed 2015 football season due to a calf injury that required surgery. Fortunately, Cruz was able to return to play 15 games in the 2016 season.
So what’s next for these two players? I think two experienced players would be appreciated at the Tennessee Titans. That would not be the first time that the Titans have searched out experienced players. Remember the Chris Johnson debacle? Sometimes seasoned and experienced is just as beneficial as young and fresh. With the dedication and passion both players bring to the game, they would be excellent additions to Tennessee.
