Why would Cruz sign now?? The last paragraph of the article is the main point. That offer is on the table. A good agent would tell his client to wait it out until April 19th. What if another team comes along and says...ok...we will give you more than Wallace? What if a team comes and says we will give you $30 mil gauranteed and give the Giants a 1st round pick? There is no rush for Cruz to sign anything. He will likely wait until close to the deadline and if nothing better comes along....he will probably sign.
whatever just sign cruz

When the first report came out about $7M for 3 years I said then that's not long term enough. If I were Cruz/Condon I'd want a 4 - 6 year deal but would have to have a strategy to get that long term a deal. I might counter the original offer with a higher guarantee request to get the contract extended out. We are getting other peoples' thoughts on what's going on behind closed doors.
Condon negotiated Eli's contracts and if you don't think these same issues were negotiated back and forth over a period of time you would be wrong.

of course im a Giants fan and want Cruz on the team but how can someone in their right mind turn down that much money guaranteed?
hopefully the Giants and Cruz can come to a happy medium but if hes set on the additional 6 mil im with the Giants in denying it!
this guy is trying to break the bank already.
being greedy has its consequences!
