Victor Cruz turns down 'Dancing with the Stars' chance

Victor Cruz has no interest in becoming the next big football star on the dance floor.

The New York Giants wide receiver celebrates touchdowns with a little salsa dance in the end zone, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to find him in another competition soon. Cruz told the New York Post he has turned down an offer to be on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” a show other football stars have had success on previously.

Cruz told the Post he is consumed by his day job.

I just want to be focused on football and focused on what’s to come,” Cruz said. “And I’m just not at the point in my career where I feel like I need to do that.”

A representative for the show declined to comment on the casting rumor.
