    Nah, a good agent gets the best deal for his client (and himself) - look at Flacco's guy going at it.
    Cruz needs the NY market, plus the Giants have the option to tender him. Cruz has little leverage.

    Victor Cruz - Lets Be Realistic!!

    Hey I would love for him to be a long term Giant BUT
    a player is one injury away from being retired in this league.

    The only way I see Victor Cruz as a long term Giant is he
    decides to take a lot less money.

    Meaning he really wants to be a Giant but his agent is
    gonna push the envelope like they all do.

    I would be very surprised to see him a Giant and I don't
    blame him at all for going after a huge pay day.

    This is what the league is and it's his time and I would
    do the exact same thing as probably many of you would too.

    Be realistic it is what it is! $$$$

    If it were loyalty the Giants would have kept Bradshaw !
    Loyalty is not gonna keep Victor Cruz.

    Don't be surprised if he's gone.

    All sane or insane comments welcome!! : )

    The Bradshaw release had nothing to do with loyalty.

    From the layout I was expecting each line to end in rhyme.

    Every player is one injury away from being retired in this league.

    Why are you posting this like an Edgar Allen Poe poem?

    If Cruz stays the way of Big Blue
    Twould be so glorious,
    With Nicks Eli and Randle
    We shall be victorious,

    Seriously though, Cruz deserves money more then Nicks and anyone else on this team for his performances that past 2 seasons. Pay the man. He is a special talent in the slot.

    What's a "lot less money"? What is he asking for? You think they should have kept Bradshaw out of loyalty?

    Sounds like he needs to do something about his Agent as most people are not going to differentiate between what a player is saying and what his agent is saying. Football more than any other sport has immense endorsement and marketing deals that can be extremely lucrative if you play your cards right. Victor will have a very comfortable life if he just goes along and remains the good guy that everyone wants to root for. He does not need Joe Flacco's agent.

    injury plays no factor with a player who isnt injury prone or coming off an injury
    If Cruz really wants to be a Giants he should take a lot less money?? wrong. He may take a "little" less
    Loyalty has nothing to do with CRuz or Bradshaw
