    VICTOR CRUZ: "I FEEL LIKE I DESERVE TO BE PAID MORE MONEY AT THIS POINT"

    "Last year, Victor Cruz
    earned $450,000. In return, the Giants received a franchise record for
    receiving yardage, with 1,536 yards.


    Next year, Cruz is due to make $490,000. He believes he should get more.




    Appearing on a special non-live edition of PFT Live, Cruz talked
    about winning the Vizio Top Value Performer Award, which goes to the NFL player
    who does the most for the least money. I told Victor that, several weeks ago,
    finalist Matt Forte said
    hed prefer not to be nominated for the award, because it means hes underpaid.
    So I asked Victor if he thinks hes underpaid.




    I think I was paid, you know, relative to where I came in this year and, you
    know, I came in as a free agent so thats the salary I was on, so I dont feel
    like I was underpaid, Cruz said. I mean, I feel like after my performance
    this year, you know, I feel like I deserve to be paid more money at this point.
    But thats something Ill let my agents and those people take care of and Ill
    just go out there and play the game.




    Hes right. And he has every right to speak his mind. Undrafted and
    strapped in 2010 with a three-year deal that pays minimum base salaries, he has
    now earned much more than that.




    That doesnt mean hes destined to become a diva. Ive interviewed him
    multiple times now, and Cruz seems like a kid who genuinely appreciates what has
    happened, understands how he got here, and wont forget where he came from. But
    the Giants need to reward him for what hes done, and for what theyll
    undoubtedly be expecting him to do especially if the team lets Mario
    Manningham
    leave via free agency.




    The full Cruz interview will be showing up soon in the right rail, by
    clicking the PFT Live box. The interview also will be posted on
    iTunes."

          I was wondering when this was going to come up.

            It's hard to argue the logic of his position.

                I feel like I deserve to be paid more money at this point as well, and if anyone asked me I would answer the question the same way. So I don't blame any player for answering that way.

                  I just hope they do whatever it is they need to do behind closed doors.

                    He is a stud, but I don't understand the money thing! I thought they got keys to the city! What do they need money for? /s

                      He deserves more, and hopefully he's true to his words and lets the agents/FO work it out without any public (newspaper) drama. We know Reese will be smart and not fork over too much/too long for a guy with one season under his belt.

                      But I'm sure they'll do something, although renegotiations always set a bad precedent (Osi is watching closely).

                          Guy had a great year...I'd like to see him do it another year before money starts getting thrown around.

                          Nicks should be given money before Cruz.
