    Loyalty only goes so far in a business. Guys put their bodies on the line and expect compensation. If they can get the most that is offered then it is in their best interests to take it. Loyalty is usually not loyalty in a sense that they are their for the organization or team but for what are their best chances to win a championship and raise their value. That is why so many players want to renegotiate contracts after Super Bowl wins or statistically superior seasons.

    I don't blame any player for taking the money and running. Just say good things about your team and move on.

    All that being said, no one but the Giants, Cruz and his agents know what has been offered. But, look at recent events and cuts and I think that besides the fact the Giants need to have money to sign rookies this year, the other reason Reese is cutting salary like a mad man is to be able to sign Cruz. Like I said in another thread....I would be surprised if you see Cruz in anything other than a Giants' uniform this year.

    A good receiver Cruz, bad receiver right now, Braylon Edwards. Look at productions from last year.

    I'd love to keep both, but not with a cap because money needs to be spent elsewhere as well.
    The team and Eli are better with both Nicks and Cruz on the field. I think they get them both, back loading one of them

    Yea. He is getting tendered this year and walking away next year.

    Reese puts a value on guys and doesn't over pay them. Sorry Cruz.
    U cant pay a slot receiver 10 million no matter how explosive he is. Draft Stedman Bailey from WV he will give the Giants similar production on a rookie deal. I think they can almost plug and play a slot receiver in this offense.

    Seriously, wouldn't it be better to just delete entire threads than just mashing them together?

    I think so. Should put a stop to duplicates immediately

    I agree.. As much as i love Victor Cruz, i think alot of his skills and production hinder on our Oline and ELI"s arm.. Meaning, u put a solid WR on this offense, theres a chance hes gonna do very well, being we got a pocket passing QB and usually a solid pass blocking Oline..

    Theres plenty of WR's out tehre, that could run a solid slot for us, while we put Rueben Randle on the outside along with Nicks... Robert Woods perhaps?

    You have a link in your very own thread with the headline "CRUZ WANTS BIG RAISE"! What does that mean if not a big contract extension?
    BIG RAISE sure as hell doesn't mean home team discount!

    There's no way of knowing with any certainty, however history would suggest he might miss a game or two

    Don't forget about JJ. He was just drafted 2 seasons ago. Maybe they see him a replacement should Cruz leave.
