To somewhat piggy back this thread, Cruz not returning is a possibility. I don't really care, I'd rather Nicks be the one not returning. But why does it seem like the Giants are always in cap trouble every free agency period? My perception is that your front office is able to bring in talent, but struggles with the cap aspect. What gives? Is this just an incorrect perception, or what's wrong with Big Blue?
A few short years ago we were re-signing guys at a bargain by extending them early while they were on the upside. That appears to have ended. I'm shocked they didn't do this with Cruz and Nicks.
