Found March 18, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Indianapolis Colts have been tied to wide receivers this offseason, and one of their expected targets was New York Giants restricted free agent Victor Cruz. However, team owner Jim Isray told reporters, including Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star, that Cruz is not on the Colts’ list. #colts owner Jim Irsay to media at owners' meetings:‏"it's not (Victor) Cruz, no". So that's one name to cross off the list. — Mike Chappell (@mchappell51) March 17, 2013 Speculation began when Isray tweeted Saturday that the Colts had been working on a deal for five days, adding they were “very close” to finalizing the acquisition. He went on to add that the target was a wide receiver, and later called the unnamed player a “whopper.” After Dwayne Bowe re-signed, Anquan Boldin and Percy Harvin were traded, and Mike Wallace, Wes Welker, Danny Amendola and Greg Jennings signed elsewhere this offseason, there are few available names remaining on the open market. This led to rumors that Indy was targeting Cruz, who is expected to receive significant attention despite being tagged with a top tender.
