That season, Victor caught 42 passes and scored 19 touchdowns. Victor attended the University of Massachusetts, but struggled to balance both his football career and academic studies. He was sent home twice over poor grades and only became eligible to play for the team in 2007. Despite these initial problems, Victor went on to have a good career and graduate with a degree. In 2010, the New York Giants signed Victor to the team. He played three games in his rookie season before he was sidelined by a hamstring injury. Victor continued to be an asset to the Giants offense and the team signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension in 2013. In 2014, Victor suffered a torn patellar tendon, ending his season.
