      "Add New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning to the number of people who have absolutely no idea what the future holds for wide receiver Victor Cruz.

      While making the media rounds on Wednesday morning, Manning said that Cruz switching to agent Tom Condon, who also represents the Pro Bowl quarterback, will only help the ongoing negotiations. He also said, jokingly, that he text Condon to "make sure" the situation works out.

      One interesting point Manning did make was how well Cruz fits into the Giants' offensive system and how he'd be taking a chance to seek a similar fit elsewhere.

      "He fits very well into our offense. … You never know, if you go to another offense, maybe it doesn't fit as well," Manning said.


      But does Easy-E, who has already begun his 2013 workouts, truly believe Cruz will be back this season and beyond?

      "I do. I think that's what I have to and want to believe," Manning said.


      Finally, Manning also said he's open to restructuring or re-working his contract if it meant helping the organization, but admits he's not yet been approached to do that."

        He should take a pay cut to keep Cruz? An actual pay cut?

          I hope the last person they restructure is Eli unless if involves an extension

              Since they are reporting (quoting) what Eli said, I think we can accept it for what it is.

                Correct. It doesn't benefit the Giants in the long run. It only benefits them right now.

                    It's illogical. I'm not the biggest Eli fan, but he is entitled to every dime included in his contract. Now if you mean he should "restructure", that's a different situation but I'd still be against that unless it involved an extension (like Brady's) so that we get CAP relief now and down the road. Eli's CAP hit every year is now at $20M, we can't take that track again, making it rise even higher.

                      Eli has to have thought about what happened to Brady... Brady most likely took that massive paycut specifically to keep Welker, and then Belicheck lowballs him all the way to the Broncos. What would happen if Eli took a paycut to keep Cruz, and then JR uses it to resign John Q. Dip**** the free safety while letting Cruz walk?

                        Brady did not take a "paycut."

                          whether or not he took a paycut from what he was making previously...he took much less than his market value.

                            Agreed. Eating 20 mill cap salary money per year is enough to see it just go up with another restructure.

                              exactly. I think we're waiting as long as possible before we extend eli. Learned our lesson the hard way.
