I think Cruz is still an enigma to a lot of the teams in the league. Is he the 1,500 yard 10 touchdown guy; or is he the guy who had some really poor games when Nicks was injured? Are the drops, the taking plays off, and the getting smacked up side the head by Amhad Bradshaw for not blocking questions weighing on people's minds? I think they are. He's had some big games, and gotten a lot of press for those games, so he's going to get attention; but is he going to get marquee receiver money? I don't know. I see him as a guy who could go to the wrong team and be a total flop. I think there are teams out there with that concern too. We can speculate all day long, but in the end it's about money vs risk; and I don't see Cruz as a slam dunk with a lot of the teams out there.

I don't like the idea of letting Cruz go...at all. Randle seems like another Toomer, Cruz is that guy that will get you out of jams with the quick slants, he's also good at kick returns.
I just don't get it, the guy has proven himself and people are still doubting him. The media really can brain wash people. If Cruz' contract was no longer up for debate, not many would be doubting him. It's like when I said we really need to get rid of Bradshaw this past season, people said I was a fool..then the second we do, people understood my reasoning.
You don't get rid of a player that has been consistent two years in a row, especially one that's in sync with Eli and if you do, you better be sure that his replacement can play up to par with what Cruz offered or better.
This years draft isn't rich with WR's, the free agency is out of the question because this is the worst year for FA. So if we can't offer Cruz a better contract, don't expect us to pursue anyone else like Wallace, etc from the FA.
