Victor Cruz feels he has something to prove after signing with Bears

The Chicago Bears might be getting an extremely motivated Victor Cruz this season.

Cruz still feels like hes got something to prove after knee and leg injuries wiped out most of two seasons of his career. While Cruz managed to return and play in 15 games last year for the New York Giants, he feels there is more to accomplish.

Every day (I have something to prove), Cruz said, via Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Even after a Super Bowl or after an injury-riddled two years, I always feel like I have something to prove. Ill always strap up my laces and helmet and have something to prove, because you do.

Youre only as good as your last catch, your last game, your last year of production. That is what youre marketed as. That is what they categorize you as, whatever your last showing is on the field.

Cruz sustained a torn patella tendon in his knee in 2014 and missed the rest of the season. Continued issues during recovery and compensatory injuries led to Cruz missing all of the 2015 season as well. Finally able to return to the field last year, Cruz caught 39 passes for 586 yards and a touchdowns with the Giants. He signed with the Bears as a free agent in May.
