Tom Coughlin said Wednesday that he was incredibly proud of New York Giants' wide receiver Victor Cruz for spending time this week with the family of 6-year-old Jack Pinto, one of the victims of the mass killings in Newtown, Mass. last week.

"That family will remember that all their days. Hopefully, at least some of their grief may temporarily be spent in being able to embrace Victor Cruz," Coughlin said. "The fact that he went and did that speaks volumes about what he has in him, inside."
