There are countless examples of "Giants Greats" that did similar or worse than what Cruz is doing. Let it go folks. Cruz is an excellent WR that is committed to this team.
    Fine, if we can't talk about that .... what are you wearing right now?
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    Especially when no such offer even existed!!

    I honestly don't know if that's a given. He is rooted in family, his comments make me think his mother is not about to move far away from where her life has been for decades and his endorsements/off field interests, already in bloom, can certainly flourish in the media capital of the world.

    I take people at their word until they prove I can't.

    The family aspect is overstated. Players can go home for the off season. Nicks lives in Atlanta right?

    Every player's agent is going to use the contracts of UFA when negotiating for ther RFA client but that isn't reality.

    Now if VC wanted to sit out the year or sign for the tender offer AND bear the risk of injury the whole thing would be different.

    I think we landed in the right spot for both parties.
    +3, nobody was offering Cruz jack spit. Hence, his "its tough to take less money" (albeit 8mil a year is less money? HAHALOLROFLMAO) statement is false. just not based on a real situation

    The family aspect depends on the individual. We are never going to know who's right since he's signed until 2018. If he produces as he has until then, he'll be invited back and then we may find out.
