Victor Cruz expects Giants to address Hernandez case early in camp

Victor Cruz, Bruce Carter AP

There were plenty of Giants fans and likely more than a few people associated with the team worried about how wide receiver Victor Cruz’s quest for a new contract would impact the team during the coming season, but those worries were put to rest on Monday when Cruz signed his extension with the team.

Now it’s time to think about other worries and we’re not talking about Hakeem Nicks‘ expiring deal. The arrest of Aaron Hernandez on murder charges has put the issue of off-field behavior in the spotlight and Cruz believes that the Giants will be addressing that issue with a meeting early in training camp so that no one goes down the same road as the former Patriots tight end, who Cruz somewhat charitably describes as someone that “made kind of the wrong decisions.”

“Knowing us it might be a full fledged meeting on security, the things we can do or decision-making,” Cruz said during an interview on WFAN, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “We take that stuff seriously, especially in the inner-city area where you never know what could happen.”

The Giants probably won’t be the only team addressing what Hernandez is accused of doing once they get together this summer. How much impact those discussions will have is anybody’s guess, but you can bet the rather large elephant in the middle of the room will be addressed far and wide as teams ramp up for the season and, as we’ve already seen, there will likely be other reactions to the fallout from Odin Lloyd’s murder.

    “Don’t shoot people.”

    Tom Coughlin better get that message across to his players before something bad happens.

    Being a serial killer is definitely making “kind of the wrong decisions.”

    Tom Coughlin: Don’t kill anyone and if your on time, you’re 5 minutes late.

    Does “kind of wrong decisions” mean, not disposing of the body better, trashing your cell…things like that?

    What a clown organization, bro.

    Would you please look up the word serial killer!!!

    Serial killers don’t do drive by killings or execution style killings, with other people present.

    Every team will address this. It’s a given.

    They should at least discuss it. The Giants have been at the top of the list in STAR PLAYER convictions over the years — Megget, LT, PLAX, Bradshaw, etc….I know overall they are at the bottom of the list for # of arrests, however, the convictions have been far more severe than most. Mara better wake up…this isn’t the 80’s when the Mara’s were able to turn a blind eye to LT blowing lines, beating people up, raping women (YOUNG & old), carrying guns, etc….the Mara’s lack of effort in that department is beginning to put a black eye on the franchise. Small back eye right now, but it appears to be getting bigger awfully quick…

    I actually agree with you on that, but “homicidal sociopath” doesn’t sound any better…

    The Bengals have never had this kind of talk with their players. What does staying out of trouble mean?

    I’ve been a Giants fan for many years but I’ve got lots of concerns about the team. Between Plaxico shooting himself, LT and his son both being charged with rape, Christian Peters being signed some years back, Shaun Rogers hanging out with a prostitute-thief, Dave Diehl wrecking some cars and getting convicted of DUI and Dan Connor getting arrested carrying weapons at an airport and lots of other stuff, I’m very concerned.

    I forgot about Ahmad Bradshaw and his sealed conviction and jail term, and current prisoners Dave Meggett and Mark Ingram.

    There’s something rotten about the Giants and I feel cheated.

    Yeah, serial killers are a little scarier I think. They target someone completely innoccent who is just too trusting. And most times it is compulsion that drives them.

    If you need your boss to tell you not to act like Aaron Hernandez then your already screwed because common sense and decency tells you how to act.

    Maras are a legendary football family. I understand fans of other teams being jealous of the Giants at times.

    The clowns on this site that trash the Giants wish they had our standards, trophy case, and front office…

    dunno why the simpletons keep posting about the coughlin 5 minute rule. i played for joepa back in the 80s. his rule was always 10 minutes early is on time. for some reason this has never been mentioned. yep, that’s right. joepa had a ten minute rule. couglin’s is kid stuff.

    I must have arrived now that I have a bizarro. In any event, he doesn’t beat spedman for anti giants posts. That dude rocks!

    For playing a stones throw from NYC, the giants and jets for that matter have been pretty good at staying away from trouble. Other than the 5 yr old plaxident, I can’t think of another major criminal misstep.
