Victor Cruz Turns Down 'Dancing With The Stars'

Saturday January 7th, 2012

Victor Cruz, who has caught the attention of many with his “Silk City Salsa” touchdown dance, reportedly won’t be bringing his dancing talents to primetime.

According to ESPN, Cruz’s agent got a letter requesting that the wide receiver appear on ABC's hit show “Dancing with the Stars.” Cruz reportedly declined the offer.

"I just wanna be focused on football and what's to come," Cruz told ESPN. "I'm just not at the point in my career where I feel like I need to do that."

"Maybe in a couple years down the line, if it ever comes back up," he said.
