All the talk about Cruz not being an outside guy, not being a #1 WR, only being good in slot comes from what? The fact that he's only an inch shorter than Nicks? C'mon! Cruz has the skill set and pure natural ability to play inside or out, pick your poison.
I never really compared the profiles of Cruz and Nicks until now. It baffles me that people are making such a big deal about Cruz only being a slot guy. Yes, in the recent years we've had some monster guys at wideout in the NFL putting up big numbers but does it mean you only get paid big money if your 6'4 6'5. I think its completely ridiculous. Cruz deserves to get whatever he's asking for, and if we cant pay him I'll be happy if he got it from someone else, the guy deserves every single penny.
