Victor Cruz is just like you. The former NY Giants wide receiver started his first day on a 9-5 job at ESPN after retiring from the NFL earlier this week.

Cruz, 31, announced his retirement on Tuesday during an interview with ESPN's UNINTERRUPTED. He posted a clip from the show on his Instagram.com page.

"First chapter of my life was amazing.. the next should be even better. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. See y’all very soon!!"

Cruz started his job as a sports analyst on Wednesday, during the 9 a.m. ET hour of “SportsCenter”.

His job duties include appearing on a variety of ESPN programs and radio, as well as contributing to “NFL Live” and “Get Up!”.

Cruz will now have more time (and less cash) to spend with TV personality Karrueche Tran who is best known for dating troubled singer Chris Brown.

  • Rayne

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I doubt it. She wants to get knocked up by a millionaire baller, not a retiree on a sports analyst salary. ?

  • missmiami305

    He is cute! Sn, I binged watched Claws a week ago. I had no clue it was sooooo good. Ktran seems to have found a good gig.

    She wants to get knocked up by a millionaire baller
    ______________________________________________
    For what and be One of Many? If she wanted that, she coulda did that with CB. I think she wants a good man and a good career for herself, even though she started out like the rest of these thots, she seems to be doing well. Claws season is over until next year, she got shot in the season finally so I don't know if she is returning to the show.

  • DETROITTOATL

    They make a cute looking couple. I the first pic she looks like a Young Chili. KARRUECHE (in my Chris Brown voice) I see you Gal.

  • Fred G sanford

    They’re holding hands in every pic...that can get to be annoying even for a woman

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Sandy, how much is less cash?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She is such a cutie!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Some people never tire of courting.

  • missmiami305

    If she’s smart she wants a man out of the limelight

  • TriniHarlem

    He's been retired unbeknownst to him so smart move. I stopped checking for him when he got smart at the mouth about Colin so there goes that ?

  • Tiffany Miller

    I wonder why she didn't get knocked up by Chris. Could be one of those Cassie type things

  • Scorpio

    Claws is the show. Seasons 1 and 2.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I thought she did and had an abortion?

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Fiance, I think. But, yes, she put him on blast with all the cheating texts messages. I think whilst she was pregnant too.

  • sjames

    soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!

  • WhoKnew

    I'm glad Karrueche finally looks happy and has a man that seems down to earth and doesn't go ham on her. It's amazing what not getting your ass whooped every day can do to increase your self confidence, put pep in your step and a positive glow on your face. You go, K.

  • SpillyNillie

    Victor so sessy...I see Kameltoe loves a crop top and wide leg set...they're a cute couple and what not...

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Something to the effect that Colin was making the NFL look bad by kneeling....

  • TriniHarlem

    What she said below

  • guest

    Good for him! He probably got a NICE contract with Espn, And, more importantly he doesn't have to worry about concussion injuries.

  • Rayne

    Still has more money than her ?

  • R in NYC

    Sandra I thought you said Karruche was personae non grata on this blog. Or is this some shade I'm missing?.... lol. Pics of her are ok just no posts about ber?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    He’s a clown

  • missmiami305

    Details lol

  • missmiami305

    ?

  • missmiami305

    ???????wish I had found out sooner. I ended up binging on Hulu last weekend. I was like dayuuuuuuuuum niecey lol

  • Ronnie Hill

    With his lil ASIAN TRANNY in tow!

  • Dollface

    Love their pairing. I wish them both well. I'll take happiness over money any day of the week.

    As far as his cheating, I read a quote the other day that went something like "different women get different results out of men, it's not guaranteed what he did the other he will do with this one"

  • Renee26

    Sometimes it happens naturally... They both smiling big so it's all good in this case

  • Renee26

    Nah...she smart. Bet she wants to be married first

  • Renee26

    He's goofy looking to me

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Cute couple...

  • Wreckognize Game

    I like that quote.

  • what?why

    Can't they find anyone respectable to fill this job?

  • Karen Brady

    I thought that was Duane Martin in the first pic.

  • Rayne

    She’d better.

  • Alextra Ballard

    These two still going strong!!! I'm happy for Karrueche. She appears content. Ol pencil pe (en) Chris Brown really put her through at one time.

  • Carmen Harrison Johnson

    I really like VC he's looks HAPPY and so does Karreueche :-)

  • davine puddin

    Gosh spoiler alert!

  • Prettybrowneound35

    Paid advertisement?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I really love his demeanor. I love them as a couple as well.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn't know Victor Cruz was dating this woman. They look good together - both of them are easy on the eyes. ... I think he is going to slay on television...

  • Toni Madison

    He is handsome!

  • Jussjess25

    Me too

  • Jussjess25

    ? really?

  • Jussjess25

    There is nothing tranny abiut kay kay. Dont even try it ??

  • Jussjess25

    And a liar !

  • Jussjess25

    I will never like this dude for how he betrayed his kids mother. She rode for him then he just bounced on her.

  • missmiami305

    Just finished the finale of season 2 and I am so ?

  • free

    she was never his wife.

  • starryeyed

    yup and I'm thinking he'll dog Karruche eventually too. Once the novelty wears off. Cause the baby mother was the same girl sending mass text messages to all the girls he was sleeping with. Karruche has a thing for emotionally unavailable men. You would think she learned her lesson by now but...anything to stay in the headlines.

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    Well damn.......guess I don't have to watch it now!!

  • Dainese

    I'm mad that I read that comment too..like damn.

  • Dainese

    Come on now.. how you just knocking us over the head with spoilers. You know we read the comments. Lol

  • Coco_Butter

    Yes I’m still shocked she didn’t cave in and go back to Chris. I guess him having that baby on her was her last straw

  • teather

    He did? What happened after that? You mean he cheated on her or left her? What happened? They make a good looking couple but that means absolutely nothing in the scheme of things.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly, she was there for him all throughout highschool and they had a child together. They were engaged he dogged her out so bad she had to let it go. Kay kay is cute and all but he ditched his long time girlfriend for what??

  • Kimocha

    They actually look cute together...

  • kekeb

    I think Karrueche is adorable! They look happy. Congratulations to them!!

  • kekeb

    Yup. But we got 40 something songs on the HOAFM album!!! I hate Chris feels this way, but I love the album. I think she will get back with him in about 5 years after he goes to/completes rehab and cleans his life up. I'm scared for him. The brother misses her and needs HELP

  • kekeb

    Pray for Chris. I really think he's not going to get over this break up in a healthy way. He's too talented to permanently self destruct

  • Misslaydj

    never knew he had kids or an ex fiancee. had to google all of that. fiancee was super cute too.

  • Jussjess25

    Yup for the most part they all do

  • Jussjess25

    Yup poor girl gave up everything to be him smh
