  • Big Blue’s bracing for offer to WR Cruz

    PHOENIX — The Giants don’t think they’re out of the woods just yet when it comes to losing Victor Cruz.

    In fact, Big Blue co-owner Steve Tisch said yesterday the team is bracing itself for what he considers a “probable” offer from another club for the Pro Bowl restricted free agent wide receiver.

    Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

          yes i do think he will get an offer and a team would gladly give up a first rounder on someone they already know can produce at the nfl level. back to back 1000 yards is nothing to sneeze at.

            Still, a step up from the NY Times!

              So far, every team mentioned has faded into the background. Now that Codon is on board, I'd be surprised if Cruz doesn't sign a long term deal here.

                I think its very unlikely that he will get an offer. That's a very steep price and all the potential players with a need seem to be gone.

                  Best case scenario!

                    i dont think its the draft pick but yeah the dollar amount is steep i agree. i guess we will see. i know i wouldnt mind losing a mid or late first rounder on a guy i know. suppose that first rounder doesnt adjust to the nfl level its a gamble.

                      Its both, but its mostly the pick. If he was unrestricted, he'd be on a team by now. He's an outstanding player. A first round pick is a huge price when you have to pay the kid as well.
                      I am actually more convinced that he will sign a deal with us once its clear that the restricted nature of his standing in the FA market is keeping him from getting an offer.

                          I'm not sure what team they think an offer will be coming from. It seems like all the potential suitors are gone.

                            Anything is possible, but it really does seem like this is very remote

                              I've asked this in another thread, why would you pay him more than Welker?
                              Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.
