    I second this, Wallace was the closest to ever get play last year and it wasn't that close. I've heard more teams are interested in Cruz then last year with Wallace.
    What teams are lining up to give up a 1st and pay Cruz?
    Mood: WOOF!

      Basically the way I understand it is that some around the league/media think there is a wink wink deal between teams not to mess with each others RFAs. In the current climate with crazy cap rich teams and spending floors, that if anyone would create interest it would be Victor Cruz. Otherwise, it would be proof of a hush hush deal between teams.

        I agree with this, and my opinion is just that I'd rather get something for him this year then lose out on him next year for nothing. I understand both sides, I just know the GMen won't be able to spend big money on Nicks and Cruz, which also....sucks haha.

        I'm just thinking long term.

            By the time Cruz is UFA, Reese will sign him long term

Nicks is ALWAYS hurting with nagging injuries, Randle is somewhat still unproven, but I think he could fill Nicks spot. I honestly, truely can not fathem what some of you say on this board sometimes.

              Cruz, Eli, JPP are all worth well more then just a lat first round pick, which is what the Giants would get.

              If we lose Cruz, we might as well start rebioulding IMO. Cut Rolle, Webster, Snee, Tuck, anyone over 30.... Cause if Cruz leaves, we wont be able to replace him. We got EXTREMELY lucky he emerged after we lost Smith. Cruz IMO is a top 10, if not top 5 WR in this league with a HUGE impact on the offense.
              I totally agree with you 100%!!! now im not saying to break the bank on him but give Cruz a great offer. Stop me if i'm not right but the 2011 superbowl run......would it have had happened without Cruz? think about it how many games he saved for us. Cruz is worth the money.

                Well we know the Patriots don't play that game = Ballard

                  The cap space for the Giants actually looks great for us in 2014. We should be able to resign a lot of our guys that offseason.

                      I've heard the Rams make the most sense, but again, no team can publicly claim they're interested until FA starts.

                            If Cruz doesn't want to settle for anything less then top-5 WR money (supposedly), might as well get a first round pick for him before we lose him and get nothing in return

                              Have read numerous articles that teams are supposedly lining up to make Cruz an offer once FA starts. Public knowledge indicates the GMen will put a first round tender on him so if a team makes him an offer we don't match. We get their 1st round pick. Because the Rams have 2 first round draft picks, I've been hearing they very well use one of those picks to make Cruz a substantial long term offer.

                              Obviously tampering allegations would be enforced if a team publicly expressed the interest to make an offer to an RFA prior to the FA period, so this all could be a smoke screen being produced by Cruz's agent to create some urgency from the Giants FO, so no one really knows. But the past 2 days I've been hearing more and more of this.

                              Personally, I would love to give Cruz up for a 1st round pick. He's 26 years old, we have Nicks and Randle is looking to break out this year. We could lock down a stud OL and LB/CB with 2 picks in the first round, get considerably younger and have more cap space to sign Nicks to a long term deal. If Cruz does indeed leave for a 1st round pick, 3 picks within the first 2 rounds would do wonders for us. Just my opinion, but with Eli at the helm, he makes everyone around him better. And with a beast, young OL and running game, Eli will have even more time to pick apart defenses. And if Cruz leaves, I can't see him having the success he has had in NY elsewhere....because of Eli.
                              Links?

                              I would love to see the list of teams that are lining up to give us a first round draft pick AND pay Cruz $10M per year. My guess is that the list, if there even is one, looks like this:

                              Raiders
                              Jets

                                It was Hakeem Nicks who was unstoppable in that play off run.
