Dwayne Bowe was my favorite WR ever since Ja Marcus Russell was throwing to him @ LSU. To me he's been in the league for quite a while and deserves his pay. Cruz has been sensational but i wouldn't pay over 8 mil a season for him, as much as i love him.
I wish people would stop overreacting and realize this is normal in a negotiation process. Cruz has handled himself with class on and off the field.
And to answer a previous poster I'll take Cruz over Plaxico in his prime. Plax's "routes" and constant push offs every route were cringe worthy. I'll take "alligator arms" every day of the week! With that said I don't think Cruz gets signed for more than 7-8 million with the Giants but I'm sure he can get more somewhere else.
I'm not sure what you mean by "turn of events." CAA (TomCondon) and Roc Nation (Jay-Z) are affiliated. Do I think Cruz knew that when he changed agents? Of course he did.
