    Perhaps, but playing in the largest media market in the world is very different from, say Cleveland. Cruz has already benefited from commercial exposure that would dry up in most other markets.

    i know u weren't. And if there was a megatron junior in this years draft we should trade up. This a weak WR class, you are right

Think about it, there is a possibility that we lose Cruz and Nicks, they both are gonna command big contracts. Even if they stay where is the depth behind them?

    Nicks, Cruz, Randle, Jernigan..only receivers currently signed for next season..who is our #5 and # 6 receivers? Barden most likely will not be re-signed and Hixon also might not be re-signed even though i think he has been a good player for us. We need 1 or 2 receivers no matter what way you look at it
    Nicks needs to stay healthy this year or he'll have no leg to stand on. No pun intended.

    Cruz is a restricted FA its very unlikely he is going anywhere. And very few teams would be willing to give up a 1st (Assuming that's his tender) plus the huge amount of money he will get. Teams can always find guys that can catch the football.

    True, but I kind of think the Salsa is really what made him a household name. Not so much playing in New York.

    The exposure is what he benefits from and it's like nowhere else. He wouldn't be the poster boy for Campbells' Soup in Carolina, as an example. Plus his business interests in clothing are also in the fashion capital of the world. He's already done a lot to assure his and his family's future. John Maras "sales pitch" touched on that.
