It’s the end of an era. Today (Feb. 13), the New York Giants released wide receiver Victor Cruz

Reports CBS New York:

The team released wide receiver Victor Cruz, Kim Jones of WFAN and NFL Network first reported. The Giants also cut running back Rashad Jennings.

Cruz, 30, had two years left on his contract and was due to count $9.4 million against the salary cap next season. His release will save the Giants $7.5 million in cap space.

After missing the better part of two seasons with injuries, Cruz returned to the field in 2016 and caught 39 passes for 586 yards and one touchdown.

Once the star of the Giants’ receiving core—Cruz was integral in the Giants winning a Super Bowl in 2011. However, Cruz fell out of favor after injuries and the arrival Odell Beckham, Jr., who quickly blossomed into an NFL superstar.

Surely the New Jersey native will be able to find work with another NFL squad.

Cruz took to Instagram to offer his goodbyes to the fans.
