Carlos Rogers Mocks Victor Cruz's Touchdown Dance

Victor Cruz has apparently arrived. We have seen NFL players mock Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow by doing his touchdown celebration this season. Now, Cruz has seen a defensive back mock his salsa-dance touchdown catch routine.

San Francisco 49ers defensive back Carlos Rogers did just that Sunday after intercepting an Eli Manning pass that was intended for Cruz, salsa-dancing right in front of the New York bench. That apparently did not make the Giants very happy.

"Some of Giants players I know told me, ‘Don't come on our sideline doing his dance," ' Rogers said flashing a larger-than-life smile.

"Victor Cruz, every time he scores he does that dance. So, once I got the pick on him I just did it right there. Surprised I didn't get the flag," Rogers said laughing loudly and noting that the Giants players' calls were all in good fun.

The bad news was, of course, that the interception hurt the Giants in their 27-20 loss. The good news for Cruz, an undrafted free agent out of UMass, is that it shows that people around the NFL know who he is now. Can an invite to 'Dancing With The Stars' be far behind for Cruz?
