Video: Victor Cruz shows off speed at Family Fest practice
Victor Cruz's speed was on display over the weekend for the Chicago Bears.
Victor Cruz was at one time known as one of the NFL's top play makers at the wide receiver position, and over the weekend at Soldier Field he gave Chicago Bears fans hope he can revert to old form in 2017.

In the video above, Cruz can be seen getting loose in the middle of the field and scoring a touchdown on a pass thrown by second-string quarterback Mark Sanchez.
"The play was designed for me to go across the middle to split the two safeties," Cruz said, via Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune. "I broke open. And Sanchez saw me. A little later than I would hope. But he saw me down the middle and I was able to get into the end zone."
Injuries plagued Cruz in 2014 and 2015 following three-straight impressive seasons with the New York Giants between 2011 and 2014. He returned to play 15 games last season for the Giants and ended the year with just 39 catches for 586 yards with one touchdown.
Cruz is expected to play out of the slot for Chicago in 2017. If that catch and run is any indication of things to come, Cruz may be doing his signature salsa dance in the end zone at Soldier Field plenty of times this season.
