    Teams lining up for Cruz

    Have read numerous articles that teams are supposedly lining up to make Cruz an offer once FA starts. Public knowledge indicates the GMen will put a first round tender on him so if a team makes him an offer we don't match. We get their 1st round pick. Because the Rams have 2 first round draft picks, I've been hearing they very well use one of those picks to make Cruz a substantial long term offer.

    Obviously tampering allegations would be enforced if a team publicly expressed the interest to make an offer to an RFA prior to the FA period, so this all could be a smoke screen being produced by Cruz's agent to create some urgency from the Giants FO, so no one really knows. But the past 2 days I've been hearing more and more of this.

    Personally, I would love to give Cruz up for a 1st round pick. He's 26 years old, we have Nicks and Randle is looking to break out this year. We could lock down a stud OL and LB/CB with 2 picks in the first round, get considerably younger and have more cap space to sign Nicks to a long term deal. If Cruz does indeed leave for a 1st round pick, 3 picks within the first 2 rounds would do wonders for us. Just my opinion, but with Eli at the helm, he makes everyone around him better. And with a beast, young OL and running game, Eli will have even more time to pick apart defenses. And if Cruz leaves, I can't see him having the success he has had in NY elsewhere....because of Eli.

    I've heard quite the opposite, because he's a UFA and the Giants will likely put a first round tender on him..teams aren't going to go for that. Adam Shefter said it was highly unlikely.

    Cruz is RFA. It is highly unlikely, but it could happen.

    If he were UFA we could be in trouble

    I saw the same late last night. And Adam is never wrong.

    If we are talking about Cruz, he's a Restricted Free Agent now. He won't be an Unrestricted Free Agent until 2014.

    Yes, Adam said it is unlikely any other teams make a move for him, given his 1st round tender.

    Historically, that has been the case so I think he's right. What does concern me is other teams may believe this is the only shot they will get at Cruz as Reese will ink a long term deal before Cruz is UFA in 2014. Could one or more be CAP set enough and WR poor enough to make the plunge?

    It was Ian Rapoprt who said the opposite. He's not as good as Adam but he has good sources too.
