    Possibility of not being able to resign BOTH Nicks and Cruz



    With Cruz only making about 550K next season, and then being a FA, if he has another season like last he would be looking at a huge contract from someone as a #1 WR. Also, Nicks rookie contract will expire the following season in 2013. Both have real low contract numbers for the amount of contribution and impact they have on this team.




    The Gmen already have their backs against the wall with the cap. It might not be likely that they can resign both, especially if you consider the fact that JPP will land a MONSTER deal if he continues at his pace.




    So, which would you rather the giants keep, and which would you think we try to replace in the draft in the future?

    Nicks & JPP are #1 priorities.




    Cruz still has to show he can me more then a flash in the pan. But I feel he will have another solid season and the Giants will have to make a decision on what to do with his contract being up.




    If the Giants take the risk of not paying Cruz before next season is over and he has a monster year they may not be able to resign him. Unless the Giants franchise him, and it is clear the Giants don't use it unless they plan on giving a long term deal. Ex Weatherford and Jacobs.




    All in all I trust Reese and his staff. He will do whatever he can to help the team and keep the young talented core together.

    The cap is projected to go up that year so we shouldn't have much to worry about.

    The cap isnt expected to go "up" until 2014. So thats a year after Nicks contract is up and 2 years after Cruz. By the way, we are not sure how much we will get. I read somewhere that Robert Kraft said he believes teams relying on the cap increase will be in trouble in the future.

    Moot point. Barring a serious Cruz injury both WR's will be #1 priorities. Eli will restructure and the Giants will make whatever cap casualties necessary to obtain enough money to sign both players.

    [/quote] Giants need to consider drafting a Safety or DT early to clear Canty and Rolle. Phillips is a FA as well.
    Drafting a WR in the first Round so they let him walk if he wants to much

    Can't rely on Eli restructuring all the time, all that does is bump up his already massive cap number at the back-end of his contract.

    It's not the time to worry about it. They are under contract right now
