NFL Free Agency: Panthers kicking the tires on Victor Cruz

Could a reunion with Dave Gettleman be in the cards for the recently released Giants WR? According to league sources, former Giants executive Dave Gettleman has brought in a familiar face from his former team.

Why does Cruz to the Panthers make sense? First, because Carolina GM Dave Gettleman was still a member of the Giants’ personnel department when Cruz broke in with the Giants back in 2010.
