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.
