        Plus, seeing as how the trend is with Giants ready to cash in, Cruz will probably tear an ACL or have a terrible knee injury. Weird stuff.
        Let's not be asking for trouble lol

        I agree they will work on a deal through 2013, but if Cruz has a lights out season, the leverage changes. Cruz accepts the tender, whcih he has to, and he should then just wait for UFA. The tender will make him underpaid for three season in a row.

        • I think it just the Giants trying to lock up Nicks at a bargain price. He's coming off an injury prone year his value is a lot lower then lets say he has a pro bowl year next year where you may have to break the bank. This way you can get him locked up for 4 to 5 years at 1/4 of the price. Rather then Cruz who is coming off a pristine year who would be valued higher and require more money upfront. Also if a team wants to tender Cruz we would get a first rounder out of it. Its just the Giants being business like.

            "Business like", I like that.
            No one remembers who came in second.

              True. If Cruz puts up another 1300 yard season, multiple touchdowns, and the Giants have a lot of success because of it, we should give him 10-12 million per year.That's market value for a dominant receiver.

              If Nicks tears it up too, then we've got a tough decision to make.

                We should lock Nicks up, and the sooner the better. Preferably a contract that wouldn't cripple us in the event that we have to cut him.

                  We have to look at what MM's play along with Nicks. .

                      • not sure I agree,,,no doubt when nicks is healthy he is unstoppable,,the problem is he has demonstrated that he is not able to stay healthy year after year and it killed the O this year. at what point do his injuries become a major problem? no doubt I want him back,,but priority over cruz? not sure about that.

                          Agreed, Nicks absence killed the offense this year.

                          Now why should we pay a guy 12 million dollars (as an example figure) who can't rejuvenate the offense when Nicks isn't in the line-up?

                            kinda hard to rejuvenate when he was constantly doubled due to the lack of nicks and another quality receiver. what will nicks do with out cruz? probably the same results cruz had this year. so we are damned if we do damned if we dont.
