    I can just imagine what it will be like If he were to miss camp.

    Missing camp would definitely not help Cruz with his reputation. Hell it could possibly even cost him more in lost $$ through lost off field opportunities than it makes in contract $$$.

    I know for me personally that is the bridge that I don't want to see him cross.
    Why assume he's going to miss camp? He's negotiating a contract for his livelihood and it could be the last time he gets the chance to get the best deal he can. So far, there has been no public acrimony. Fans see "ugly" under rocks. Cruz's endorsements rely on his playing football in many cases, not how he handles his contract negotiations which some think he is entitled to do.

    This is an environment where the teams have all of the leverage in terms of releasing players at any point during the term of a contract. Tom Condon will get a deal done with Jerry Reese.

    The little dancer still refuses to report......he thinks he should be paid more than REAL number 1 WRs...time to move this clown and get a football player......the Giants don't need a dancing prima donna with Alligator arms.

    Yeah I do realize that, but it is also for strength and conditioning and you know as well as I do, that he'd be there if there were no contract issues. The major theme of my post refers to his stubbornness in not signing a very fair and generous contract offer from the Giants. He wants 10 mil a year minimum, and he's not worth that.
    I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it......truly elite receivers don't drop passes the way Cruz still does.
    Sign the contract Victor!

    I agree with you. He is not worth 10 mil but 5 to 6 mil is right. That is a good contract for a player who is sarounded by othe talents that need to be signed.

    Giants have a lot of needs and 10 even 7 mil is too much for one player. Football is not a one man show so sign contract Cruz.

    Just as well Chris Snee and Antrel Rolle count for a combined $20 million this year, then.

    So are you saying we should dump Eli too? How about Nicks when his contract is renewed next year?
