    And that's just off the top of my head, and not counting overpaids that are on the way out like Osi...

    That said, Cruz is worth 7-8M or so...

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

      Still thinking 7 year for $7mil/year for around a $50 million dollar deal.

        I think this move will come down to our current depth between the outside and slot receiver positions. If you can only keep one (and I sadly think that will be the case) do you trust Jernigan to replace Cruz or Randle to replace Nicks? Usually the tall men with elite speed (Megatron, Julio Jones, A.J. Green, etc) get the big bucks because of how they dominate with their raw athletic ability but those guys also aren't constantly dinged up or have someone like Cruz in the slot competing with them for a long term contract. It's going to be interesting.

          Those guys are at the end of multi-year contracts... Unfair comparison.

            Cruz! plays too small for me to warrant him a 8-10 mil a year contract, and what i mean by small is he really is scared of getting hit over the middle. Times i have watched him catch the ball and drop to the floor if he doesn't have a clear break away.
            What i love about cruz, he is a smart route runner, great speed, can play all three wide out positions, great personality a true giant; classy.
            I just don't think he plays big, if he does that then i would agree he is a 8-10 mil a year guy.
            I honestly don't know what playing "small" means and while I don't agree he's the next Jerry Rice, he's had back to back 1,000 yard games. The first season he had Nicks to take some of the pressure off. The second season he didn't and only dropped by 400 yards. I'm not saying that's worth $10M here, but it's not beyond belief to see some team coming at him with that offer.

              We got a bargain on Tuck's contract. At the time when the Giants gave him an extension he was a top 5 defensive end in this league

                No one was complaining when those contracts were entered into.

                  REMINDS me...im not saying he is. but cruz honestly does remind me of rice in how just running routes gets both open over n over. not the biggest or fastest could be ascribed to both, i dunno. they both wear 80...lol cruz does remind me of him. a lot.

                    CRUZ IS N OT MAKING THAT DEMAND, that is the writer's uneducated guess

                      After seeing what happens when Nicks is hobbled, I really don't think the team can afford to let him go. Sad thing is, they can't really afford to let him stay, either...

                      Knowing Reese he'll probably give him what he wants and then restructure the hell out of the contract.

                        i'll be absolutely stunned if his contract is $6-$7 million a season. STUNNED.

                        the 8-10 is an uneducated guess, but its based on multiple contracts for elite WRs in the NFL.

                        hard to argue that Cruz isn't an elite WR.

                        i've been saying this for 2 years, we can't pay both WRs in the 8-10 range, and our QB $20 a season, so whatever Cruz gets will largely cast the die of what the giants plan on doing with Nicks.
                        I think Cruz may have knocked himself off the "elite" status with his crucial drops and teams better able to counter his getting AS open with a year of film and documented tendencies behind him. His home run TD YAC catches went down to from the previous year.

                        Sure all receivers drop balls - and im not saying its fair, but he had some big drops IMO that probably could make the difference of $2mil or so a year.

                        I want him to be a Giant for life, but I dont see it for more than a 7&7 for about 50 mil.

                          and its why i can argue that the diff. from 6-8 mil, or even 6 to 10 mil, is worth it when ur getting what cruz will give us every year. what he gives us wont suddenly go away, we didnt even have another true outside guy much of the year and cruz still did his thing. give him a healthy nicks and watch out...im torn. i can see both sides.
