Last night he became a Super Bowl champ and this afternoon a model.

According to The Hollywood Reporter New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has just signed a multi-year contract with IMG Worldwide.

We're sure the deal was based on his amazing athletic abilities, world champion status and all-around good looks--but it's his touchdown celebration dance that makes us swoon. (Even Madonna can't resist the urge to cha-cha like Cruz.)

But smooth moves aside, the 26-year-old superstar who is currently earning the league's minimum salary is now positioned to become one of the top earning players in the NFL.

The IMG Clients Division will represent and manage Cruz when it comes to endorsements, licensing, speaking appearances, literary opportunities and even fashion projects.

Does this mean we can look forward to a steamy underwear endorsement a la David Beckham for H&M? Or maybe a sexy salsa workout video to play up his smooth moves? Whatever the New Jersey native ends up doing we're sure it'll be hot.

IMG also represents stars like Heidi Klum, Julianne Moore, Venus Williams and even New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's wife Gisele Bunchen (awkward!)

"I'm very pleased to be represented by IMG," Cruz said. "They have a great reputation around the world. They have represented some of the most iconic athletes across a myriad of sports and I am honored to be among them."
