  • Victor Cruz Focusing on Game, Not Tiny Giants' Contract

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...iants-contract

    Excerpt: "Guess what? Victor Cruz isn't going away.

    The New York Giants receiver leads the team and ranks third in the league with 50 receptions through seven games. He's on pace for 114 catches, 1,433 yards and 16 touchdowns in just his second season as a starter.

    These numbers don't align with his puny contract. Cruz is making just $540,000 this year, and there's little talk -- beyond hints from the team -- of a new deal. He becomes a restricted free agent in 2013.

    "I just kind of want to block it out," Cruz told Bob Glauber of Newsday on Monday. "I feel like if I start thinking about it, it will start consuming me, and I don't want it to get that way. I just want to block it out and focus on football, and I think I've been doing a good job of that." Read more...

        Victor will get a fitting reward. Hopefully from Jerry Reese.

            I believe JR will find a way to keep Nicks and Cruz. If it comes down to only being able to keep one of them, and Cruz continues to play as he has and maintains his durability, I think Reese may keep Cruz over Nicks. Victor's numbers through 25 games is pretty impressive and put him in some top flight company.

                What was it the Redskins gave Haynesworth?

                  Hoping they give him a new contract during the bye week and lock him up for a few years...

                    I wouldn't be surprised if he's not working on it as we sit here

                      I wonder if Cambells pays him more?

                        Endorsements tend to outpace salaries for the truly elite players. I would think Eli brings in more through his endorsements

                            Keeping Nicks and Cruz in Eli's stable for the foreseeable future would be in the best long term interests of the team. Who to release/re-structure is going to be critical to make it happen.

                              We should of locked him up last offseason. Anyone who watches football knew he wasn't going to be a 1 year wonder.
                              WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:
