I miss Red Hook!
Here's the question...
Do you think Cruz is a #1 WR?
If so then he could go. If not, he goes no where.
If a team drafts a WR in round #1, surely they expect that WR to be a #1 WR on the team. Who would draft a WR in round 1 to be there # 2?
So if Cruz is tendered a #1...
Either way the Giants win.
On the Giants' offense, who had a great year in 2012? Over two years Cruz is the #5 receiver. As for holding Reese hostage, how could Cruz do that as a RFA? Reese has all the leverage. Now, if a team were to offer Cruz a contract based on his two year performance and Reese decided Cruz isn't worth whatever the offer is Cruz leaves. That's how free agency works.

How long do we have to place the first round tender on him?
The Giants sit in the cat bird seat! Look, I love Victor, but after the hit in the Steeler game, WOW! His arms got sooooooo short, man. Think about it. 4th and 5 need to convert for an opportunity to kick a winning FG. Who do you want across the middle to pick it up? Cruz or Bolden, Welker,etc!!! He has made a spot for himself on this team just like Steve Smith did. Look what happened! I hope we keep him. Tender a first round and roll the dice! Go Giants!
Cruz still had a great year and to even think he could reproduce the numbers he had the year prior...without a healthy Nicks to alleviate some of the pressure is just ridiculous. The guy is probably one of the best slot receivers currently in the game and needs to get paid more than he is currently making. I am sure that it is a priority of Reese to lock him into a contract that benefits both sides wihtout crippling the Giants in the future or locking up other free agents they feel they need to sign. The thing is that if it comes down to it and the contract is not done in a certain time table they probably have set then they'll probably table it until after this season.
