Earlier Monday we told you Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was involved in talks to produce a reality television show. Might want to pump the brakes on that one.
Cruz himself was quoted by the New York Daily News discussing the reality show (or at least discussing something in the realm of a show, it seemed). But later Monday he tweeted he is "never EVER doing a reality show" and isn't talking about it.
You'll also notice the hashtag on Cruz's tweet. That's a shot at the New York media, in case you can't read.
What's interesting about the decision to send that tweet is Cruz probably doesn't want the New York media on his back right now. He's hanging out, not signing his RFA tender and having reportedly turned down about $7 million a year from the Giants.
But even if he manages to get the media riled up and ready to look for his missteps, by avoiding the reality show he's doing himself a favor with fans.
