The New York Giants found a hidden gem in wide receiver, Victor Cruz, this season. Cruz, who is now an unquestionable fan favorite, is ready to tell his tale via a book deal, courtesy of Penguin USA publishing company.
Mass Live reports that Cruz received the book deal but the contract details have yet to be finalized.
Cruz has been enjoying his newfound high celebrity status following an incredible 2011-2012 season. His touchdown dance has become an NFL staple and only helped garner more attention to the young stand-out. In fact, Cruz turned down ABC's, Dancing With The Stars, something that athletes such as, Hines Ward and (as of this coming season) Donald Driver have taken part in.
Cruz is joining his quarterback, Eli Manning (who Ralph Vacchiano wrote about following the 2006-2007 season and Super Bowl championship) and David Tyree as recent Giants who have been had books written about them in recent years.
The story of Victor Cruz should prove to be an interesting one, though, coming to be an NFL receiving leader after a slow and troubled college career. Giants 101 will provide more details as information about the book continues to emerge.
