Victor Cruz is accustomed to perfecting his craft, but this offseason he's honing his storytelling skills. The New York Giants wide receiver will release his memoir, "Out of the Blue," in one week. Cruz will stop by NFL Network studios on Tuesday to talk about his story and the Giants' chances for a repeat.

Here's what else is on tap for Tuesday:
