    That's not exactly a huge amount of time though, so let's not act like a tendered player hasn't been taken in the past 100 years.

    It will or won't happen .... the Giants benefit from any scenario here short of Cruz being hit by lightning.

    At my age, 10 years is a long time

    I think they are all working to get the same result.

    10 years is actually to long a sampling time. The league has changed tremendously since then. The cap is hyper-tight on a lot of teams right now.
    Get well soon 80.

    I agree with that. This is a whole new ballgame and the dynamic is changing rapidly. Look at how salaries are collapsing and the large number of one year contracts. It is always true the past doesn't guarantee the future but in the NFL and right now that is especially true.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I would not be surprised if they don't lock Victor up soon. Condon knows is way around the NFL and should be able to determine if there are going to be any offer sheets coming his way . It's to his benefit to have one or two but even without any, he can get Cruz a decent long term deal just based on what Mara and Tisch have said publicly.

    I have to think Reese almost exploded about Tisch saying Cruz would get more than Welker UNLESS their current offer is already more than Welker signed for.

    It sure seems to be heading that way this year.

    I'd say Eli, Nicks, and Cruz deliver for each other and the team.
