  • Like I said. Giants put a limit on what they are willing to pay for Cruz. Cruz wants considerably more.

The original proposer says well then we want the sun and the stars, and the other side say we'll consider the sun and half of the stars....... Each side knows going in the line they will not cross. When that point is reached by either side, sabres rattle.

      It's a process, it takes time, they have time.
      That describes my marriage of 30 years too !

                    Yea. And Cruz will get tagged next season. And play under it. Then move on to some other team after that season.

                      I get what ur sayin...but people don't realize when a team pays a player that much money they don't have enough money to get other quality starters.

                      Larry Fitz Cards...team sucks with decent defense
                      Mario Williams...team sucks
                      Calvin Johnson....team is decent at best
                      Mike Vick 13.9 Mil....team sucks
                      Tambi Hali...14.5 Mil...team sucks
                      Phillip Rivers..15.3 Mil....team sucks
                      Sam Bradford 15.6 Mil...team sucks

                      and the list goes on and on....

                        I doubt it very much.
                        He will test the market (if they don't agree first). He won't get what he thinks he should. (because no one wants to pay him AND give up a 1st round pick) We will then do a deal. Its in his interest to do so. Careers can end in a heartbeat in the NFL and he knows it.

                          Cruz might take his talents to South Beach.

                            It's possible. But it didn't work for the steelers with Wallace.

                            • Wallace has no hands..he will burn the DB and be wide open for a TD and drop the ball

                                There is plenty of time to get a deal done. But, if a tender is placed, I agree with Slip as I can't see Cruz coming back in 2014 becasue he's going to lose an estimated (mine) $5M -10M in 2013. Like him, hate him, he is entitled to fair compensation.
