This may be a foolish question, but if a team offers Cruz a contract does that mean he has to sign it or take it? Like, say the Rams offer a deal but Cruz doesn't want to play for them, does their offer alone bind him or the giants into a corner?

Cruz doesn't have to sign anything he doesnt want to, he's still Giants property.

+1 He has the option of doing nothing with any offer sheet(s) he might receive.

If he doesn't like the team or the offer he can turn it down, just like a regular free agent. The difference is that we have the option to match and get compensation if we don't.

word has it that Wes Welker turned down more $$ from Tennessee to sign with Denver. As a free agent they can sign any contract as long as it fits in the general parameters set by the union contract (can't sign for less then veteren minimum, etc)
