When New York Giants WR Victor Cruz tore his patellar tendon last October, he vowed to return before this year's training camp. There wasn't "any doubt in [his] mind" that he'd return better than ever.
Cruz recently sent a video to Bleacher Report, showing him performing a pool workout. Regarding his current state of mind regarding his return, he said, "In order to succeed . . . you gotta put that work in. I have to. No one else will. No one's going to do it for me."
It's clear that Cruz is feeding off any negativity thrown his way and turning it into motivation.
