The Giants reportedly have extended an offer to Cruz worth $7 million annually with more than $20 million in guarantees.
Roc Nation will have to bridge a sizeable gap, as Cruz expects a much bigger pay day. The Daily News reported Wednesday that Cruz's last request under former agent Tom Condon was closer to the $10 million to $11 million range per year.
Cruz wants to be paid the going rate for a No. 1 receiver entering his prime while the Giants are offering elite slot-receiver money.

I dont know, Im losing interest in this whole thing. He was supposedly a nobody from Patterson, now he's rocking all this bling and fashion-wear and joining Jay Z's agency? This doesnt really affect my opinion of him as a player, but it does make me lose a little respect for the guy as a person, which trickles a tiny bit to my overall view of him. My advice to Cruz would be to keep it simple and remember where you came from and what this organization has done for you.
