Tim Tebow made his return to the NFL official on Thursday morning when he signed a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars as he attempts to make a comeback nearly a decade later, this time as a tight end.

With news of this, it has other players thinking about making a comeback, and former Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is one of them.

In an Instagram post from the official NFL account about the Tebow signing, Cruz comments that it might be time for him to dust off his old salsa shoes. This, of course is a nod to his signature salsa touchdown dance.

This was pretty clearly a joke by Cruz, but given the way his career was somewhat abruptly ended by injury, you can imagine he's definitely had the itch to try and make a comeback at times since then. And that's a comeback that probably a lot more people would be a fan of.
