    Nicks is not getting $12m. Ugh!
    Good Article and it sounds like Reese it getting ready to move on without Cruz if he isn't signed by the draft.....and he won't be. We can still hope some team rushes in tomorrow and gives the Giants a first round pick, then they can try to sign the dancing slot receiver who thinks he should get "Mike Wallace" money.

      He sure is, Reese made it clear he is ready to move on now that Cruz is holding out.....good move by Reese.

          Wow....Thanks. Holding out would piss me off enough to turn my back on him,,,,,,but I don't believe he will. It had to open his eyes a little bit to see no one step up and offer him better. He belongs here, and he knows it.
          I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

            Technically, we can reduce the tender on June 11 (or somewhere around there). I really don't see us doing that unless things get uuugggglllyyyyy. If he misses out on the first few days of camp because they're pounding out the final details, I won't be too upset. But, if it's contentious I will definitely lose some respect for Cruz.

            And it isn't even like no one would want Cruz. No one wants to part with a 1 and then give Cruz a contract. Look at Wallace. He didn't get any bites as a RFA, but then got a $12m/yr contract.

            • Good to see that Reese isn't waiting on Cruz any longer....the Giants have been more than patient with him and have tried to negotiate in good faith for over 8 months......and he just blows them off. It's time to move on now and it is clear by Reese's answers that he is.

                Because both terms in their context were used just as poorly.

                    I think it's June 17th and I agree they probably won't reduce it "just because they can." While Cruz's options are few, they aren't non-existent. Holding out, it seems to me, would not be productive. If it comes to that, I would rather they agree to the tender and get the team to agree not to apply the franchise tag in 2014.

                      Can't argue with that.
