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.
Past tense huh?
Reese referred to Cruz in the past tense when he told reporters: “It’s all about the team for us. He was a nice piece to what we were doing. We’ll see where it goes with respect to his contract. When we get ready to play when the season starts, we’ll have some good players out there. I’m not sure if Victor will be out there or not. I don’t assume anything. If Victor is not here, we have other receivers.”
Thus far, this hasn't been ugly on Cruz' or on the organization's side. Any fan getting up in arms right now over the situation is just being impatient, immature, and, if I dare say, an imbecile.
Cruz a cancer? Wow! The guy is handling his business without so much as making a peep other than saying don't believe what you hear unless it comes from him, his agent or those directly involved. The guy hasn't said a bad thing about the organization. Even if the Giants cannot come to an immediate contract compromise and an offer is not made by another team, Cruz is the type of guy to go out there and still play without saying anything negative. If anything the guy has shown nothing but class.
Everyone just needs patience and let this thing work itself out.
