    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.

    Where are you getting "FORMER AGENT" from? I do not see that anywhere. My understanding is that roc nation is going to handle non football interests and Condon will handle the football side.

    See what I mean?
    No, I really don't. Who doesn't want "more money." Do you think Eli accepted the first offer he got in his last extension?

    That's because you actually bothered to read what was written.

    Those are facts, not speculation.
    Not hard for someone to go off him after watching this play out. It's been going on since the beginning of last season, remember.
    He has until the 19th. Would you not wait to see what, if any, other offers come? There is nothing wrong with what Cruz is doing or has done. NOTHING.

    That's my point ... he wants more money and not specifically from the Giants.

    And Eli did sign a new contract with the Giants long before they had to start with this tendering bull****.

    He still has til the 19th. Are you saying the Giants are not going to try and match an offer if one should happen to come?

    Has Cruz or even anyone in the all knowing media said he won't sign the tender?

    Nothing wrong with it at all.

    Just points to the fact that Cruz might be a bit more interested in his next contract than with staying with the Giants.

    Eli was never a RFA
