WR Victor Cruz

**

Q: [Jerry Jones] made a comment about kicking some Giant ass on your next visit to Cowboy Stadium…**
A: (Laughs) Did he really?

Q: …What do you think about that?
A: I don't have any thoughts. Obviously, we have to line up and play the game. I'm excited to do that. I'm excited to line up and play a game against the Cowboys twice this season, and we'll see what happens.

Q: Did you rehearse that a little bit?
A: Yeah, I kind of practiced it on the way in.

Q: You do the salsa in the end zone. You can't celebrate with other players, how about doing the tango with the football?
A: I don't know how well that will work with my grandmother, but we'll see what happens. We'll see what we can come up with.

Q: How different is this camp for you, where you were still flying under the radar a little bit?
A: It's a little different.  Coming in, obviously, I did some good things last year, and I just need to come in and be somewhat of a leader in the receiving corps.  Obviously, we have Hakeem sidelined a little bit with his foot.  I just have to show what this receiving corps is all about for the young guys and keep my production high and keep doing what I was doing last year.

Q: It seems like a very different approach though from last year I would assume?
A: I agree.  Definitely a different approach. It's something that's sort of fallen onto my shoulders. It is what it is. I was fortunate enough to come in last year and have an opportunity to play, and make some big plays and some plays that helped my team win some ball games.  Now I'm at a point now where I need to continue to do that, and I have become somewhat of a leader in the receiving corps.

Q: When the news sort of trickles to you guys about Terrell, what's the mood?  Does it change right away and how do you feel about it?
A: It's unfortunate, man. He worked so hard to get back. I workout with him; we work at the same facility in Jersey from time to time. Seeing him come in working hard and doing what he wanted to do to get back healthy and stuff like that, and seeing him go down again with that injury, it hurts. It's painful. At the same time, it's part of the game. It's unfortunate.  You just need to hold everybody accountable, make sure all the other guys that are backing him up, know their responsibilities, know their plays, and are able to fill that void that T2 left behind. Wish him a speedy recovery.

Q: You've run some one-on-one stuff against Prince. Even on Monday you guys went at it a little bit.  What's your impression of where Prince is today where Prince is today versus where he was last year?
A: I think it's a big difference. I think last year he was a little tentative in wondering what the NFL was really all about, being that he missed a couple games early on in that season, but he's doing well.  He's doing good. He's physical.  He definitely has great footwork. He has great hands and stuff off the ball. This is good to see him getting his … and getting his footing back and just want him to keep that up.

Q: Have you had a lot of time to practice with Rueben and if so, how is he doing?
A: I've had some time to practice with him. I haven't had some alone time, but just stuff on the field. He's doing well. He's getting the offense, he's picking it up pretty quickly and he's definitely moving at a good pace right now. I'm excited for him and hopefully he can continue his success.

Q: And what about David Wilson?
A: That's my man there. He's one of the most explosive guys I've seen in a while and I talk to him all the time, just to keep his head on right, and he's going to make some big plays for us this year.

Q: Do you see him performing…?
A: I think so.I think he has all of the attributes. He's a different player than Jacobs. He's more explosive. He can go inside, outside at the drop of a dime. I'm excited to watch him play, personally.
