    I understand the money many of these players get is obscene but that's not the players' fault. If we didn't exist to buy their jerseys, pay PSL's and annual season tickets, etc., there would be no football. I hope they can come to an agreement with Cruz. It will be too much money no matter what it is but the real question is can he help us get into the playoffs. I think he can.

    They are going to spend their CAP as they always do. Better on someone who has proven he can get the job done.

    Don't know how much he is really worth, but as far as Nicks goes, he has never stayed healthy for an entire season. What if Randle is the next Nicks? Don't think they are done with JJ. They may even draft another WR.

    THIS THREAD IS ABOUT VICTOR CRUZ!!!

    Do you actually believe I would refer to our 5th or 6th WR as a great player?

    You must be friggin crazy. Barden has done less than Steve Smith for God's sake and he doesn't have a horrible injury to use as an excuse.

    Actually, the question is "who's the better value"? You have the draft, 8 -10 million saved, an extra 1st and a 3rd. If i had a choice between Cruz and a good Oline, I'd take a good oline any day of the week and take my chances with Nicks, Hixon, Randle. It's all a risk though. But isn't that what football is? All one big calculated risk.

    But Cruz isn't going anywhere. If we put a 1st round tender on him, i doubt teams will touch him.

    But a draft choice doesn't guarantee a good player. And a draft choice certainly doesn't guarantee a good offensive line.
    Draft choices are prospects. Sometimes they work out, sometimes they don't. Victor Cruz may not have been drafted, but he has become a player who is worthy of a first round standing. He's actually done it on the field in the NFL and is still a young player.
    I would not make the trade off of a known (and outstanding) quantity for an unknown pick in this case.

    I know it's hard to understand, but the $8 - 10 MM figure was an uneducated guess made by the author of the article that started this thread. We have absolutely no idea what Cruz is asking for. We can sign Cruz and take care of the lines as well.

    I hope that fool doesn't want too much money. He did things on his own and Nicks was a big reason why he did very well. Nicks when healthy is a number one receiver.

    Why is Cruz a "fool"?
