You are really struggling with this aren't you.

If a player believes he will continue to do well that money is absolutely there for them to earn.
Just like I showed with Webster boley or Eli.
The total number is absolutely 100% important. That is money the player can earn.
You keep saying a player can be released and not owed any of it.
A player could get hurt and not earn any of his "guaranteed" money too.
But when a player like boley earns nearly double of what he was guaranteed I would say that is far from being meaningless.

No need for that, Jerry has JJ in the wings. He was drafted for the slot. if for some reason we can't resign Cruz a WR in the first would be a head scratcher with Jernigan already on the roster.

If a player gets hurt he gets the guaranteed money.

A lot of times they have some crazy baloon payment in a contract that gets included in the total of the deal, and they all know that it won't get paid.
I'm telling you, in any other sport you would be right. In the NFL its the guaranteed money and the total years (from the clubs perspective) that matters.
And the money is NOT there for them to earn if the FO decides to void the deal. And the player can't do anything about it. He could be playing great but if the team doesn't think he's worth it, he ain't getting it. Period.

No...you're right. That amount would be more like a 4 year deal.

Seriously don't see him not signing here. The real issue will be signing Nicks next year.

Some Victor Cruz news.. John Mara just made some comments
Bart Hubbuch @HubbuchNYP John Mara tells me he wants Victor Cruz back but wonít break the bank for him. Mara says his agentís current demands are way too high.
Jenny Vrentas @JennyVrentas
Mara said Cruz "is a high priority, but he's not our only priority." Mara said they have a year -- they would tender him if no deal struck.
Yep. Just what I figured, Cruz probably wants top 5 receiver money, but the Giants don't want to pay him as such
