The New York Giants have reportedly parted ways with veteran wide receiver Victor Cruz. A memorable run has come to a heartbreaking end.

The New York Giants entered the summer of 2016 with one of the most polarizing decisions in franchise history in front of them. General manager Jerry Reese and wide receiver Victor Cruz have expressed a mutual desire to continue his tenure, but acknowledged the hurdles in making that happen.

On Monday, Feb. 13, the final verdict was revealed: the Giants have decided to cut the 30-year-old wide receiver.

Cruz was active for five memorable seasons during his time with the Giants. He had an unforgettable rookie season in 2011, during which he produced elite numbers and helped New York win its fourth and most recent Super Bowl.

According to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network, the Giants have parted ways with one of the most accomplished wide receivers in franchise history.

That’s a heartbreaking development, albeit one that was expected to transpire.
