    John Mara Hopes Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz Are Both Giants "For a Long Time"

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...m_nicks_v.html

    Excerpt: "Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks often speak about working best in synergy, one receiver opening up big-play opportunities for the other. If the Giants can work it out, they'd like it to be that way for a while.

    But it won't be easy. Cruz is a restricted free agent this year, and Nicks is due to be an unrestricted free agent after next season. The Giants must determine if they have the resources to award new contracts to both players in a year's time -- with a salary cap expected to be relatively flat, no less.

    "They’re both priorities for us. They’re both terrific players," co-owner John Mara said today between meetings at the NFL Scouting Combine. "We hope they’re both Giants for a long time."

    An ESPN report earlier this month said the Giants have prioritized Nicks, their first-round pick in 2009, over Cruz, the former undrafted free agent who posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and set a franchise record for single-season receiving yards in 2011.

    "I don’t know where that came from; that’s not true at all," Mara said. "They’re both priorities for us." Read more...

    Since we're in cap hell if we don't cut both Diehl and Webster they probably both won't get long term deals until next offseason.

    If Mara is sincere with having them for a long time then maybe he will make sure that certain cuts are made so we can sign them.

    Goes to show that BSPN can make up stuff to make a story sometimes. All those "Don't need Victor Cruz" threads just took a backseat.

    They will do what's right for the team, long term. I think Mara is as sincere as he can be. That doesn't mean they can get both signed. A lot depends on Nicks and Cruz and what they want and will accept.

    yep, if they both are willing to give a bit to stay together and do beautiful things, than it could be possible. If both want top dollar, it most likely will not work out.

    It's always a good sign that the boss wants you back. Hope they can do it.

    He's doing what an owner should do; staying out of the fray and speaking to the fans as a fan. If we can work it all out that would be great but NOT at the expense of having the $$$ to fill out the roster starting with reloading the OL.
    No one remembers who came in second.
