Victor Cruz says Giants have agreed to framework of new deal

Victor Cruz, Bruce Carter AP

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz seems to move as quickly in contract talks as he does when he gets behind a defense with the ball in his hands.

One day after saying that contract talks were moving in the right direction, Cruz said during an interview on WFAN that his camp and the Giants have agreed to the structure of a deal that will keep him with the team for years to come.

“From what I hear, they’ve just agreed on the structure right now,” Cruz said. “And that’s all I’m at liberty to say.”

With a salary of $540,000, Cruz is probably the biggest bargain in all of football. His desire to get a new deal done now has been spun as a desire not to hold out this offseason, which is probably less true than the risk that he blows out his knee this Sunday and finds that he doesn’t get the financial reward he’s earned for the Giants over the last two seasons.

Either way, it doesn’t appear that there’s going to be much need to keep spinning things for too much longer. One of the more logical contract extensions in the league looks like it is close to being signed, sealed and delivered.

    Very smart decision by the Giants, they did not let this get messy. The NY Football Giants are a classy top notch organization for sure.

    And the song to that music? “Scoreboard….dear oh sweet scoreboard. Scoreboard, lit up by the reflection of my ring”.

    That’s the spirit! Good to know all you Dallas folks will be listening to music instead of sitting on your couch when your team misses the postseason. If you insist on following a team that just can’t win in January, let alone even see February, it’s a good idea to have hobbies.

    Like it or not, the rookie and the new guy have shut that offense down. I didn’t say Dallas was a better team, because they aren’t, but given the fact that Cruz didn’t do anything against them this year, this isn’t the worst thing for Dallas.

    Gmen just keep on keepin on … Choosing exactly the right young men worth keeping around as both players and people. Makes me think about why DJax is still with the Eagles … good player wins out over being a decent human in Philly I guess

    I reported this last night. How is it that I consistently beat these guys for stories concerning New York teams?

    Sure, if you consider safety help is perpetually less than 10 yards away, and they weren’t called for a SINGLE defensive holding, illegal contact or pass interference in EITHER OF THE TWO GAMES OF THE GIANTS, then you can keep telling yourself they shut the Giants’ WRs down.

    If Victor Cruz signing is music to Cowboys ears, then I guess Stevie Brown and Jpp will be Freddy and Jason to the Cowboys.

    Last season the giants torched them. What’s the difference this season? Oh new refs! Got it. HAHA clown Giants. If you had played a good team last Sunday, the would have stomped your teams head in.

    Probably. And Romo not being the qb anymore will be like Aikman coming back.
