    Putting this to bed. We all have problems and the confessional is closed at the moment.

It sounds way to much like a bluff to me. The salary cap is real for everyone, not just the Giants.
    His agent's phone can't start ringing until March 12th. There are several teams with significant CAP space

    Giants prioritize Hakeem Nicks' deal

    Interesting. This is feeling more and more like the Steelers situation last offseason.

    Yes, indeed it is. Although, if they cannot reac an agreement with Cruz I can see him being tendered. I do not see the Giants slapping Cruz with the franchize tag.

    Inteesting and appropriate that Nicks is our first priority at WR.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Considering that Nicks contract next year would likely use the Cruz contract as a starting point, this makes sense. Lock up Nicks now, maybe use the new contract to clear up some space and use that to try to sign Cruz. In the end, if you have to choose one or the other, I think Nicks is the right choice, as much as I would like to see them retain both.
    My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

    wow, heres a curveball situation i kinda just thought of; could it be possible and make more sense fiscally to actually get nicks deal done now, and then cruz's next season/offseason???

    As I have been saying, Nicks is more valuable to this offense than the slot guy is.

    Slot guys are almost plug and play in this system and you can get a 900+ yard guy.

    The outside receiver that forces double teams and STILL gets open? Incredibly hard to find.
