Coming off a record-setting season for the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, Victor Cruz isn't on `Cruz' control. Far from it. The only thing that one of New York's most popular players has tempered is his celebratory salsa-dancing. It's a bit much for training camp. What hasn't changed is Cruz's approach to football. He's all in, and that has never been more evident that at the first few days at the University at Albany. In Thursday's practice, Cruz ran a route across the middle and his feet went out, sending him sliding to the grass. Still, he managed to raise his chest, reach back and catch Eli Manning's pass. It was a great catch by a young man who came out of nowhere to become a star.

Hakeem Nicks Chills On The Sidelines

I’ll be there week one Juan… Hakeem Nicks is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, but is built like a China Doll. The Giants and Nicks have both stuck with a week one return, but I have reservations about where is conditioning will be. If he slips too far in drafts, he will have great value though.
