New York Giants fans were crushed last season when star wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a torn patella tendon against the Eagles but were quickly reminded that his replacement, Odell Beckham Jr. could get the job done.
The two star in a Footlocker ad playing off supposed turmoil within the locker room. With fans being excited for Beckham’s youthful exuberance, is there any room for Victor’s seasoned talent?
