Eli Manning will throw to Victor Cruz for several more years after Cruz signed a long-term contract with the Giants this week. Manning is glad for that, but he may be even more glad that he doesn’t have to talk about it anymore.
Manning answered a question from the New York Post about the situation by saying he’s happy to be done answering questions about the situation.
“It’s going to be nice to not have to answer any more questions about Victor and his contract status with the team,” Manning said.
Manning also allowed that he’s glad he’ll have Cruz in the huddle this season and for many more seasons to come.
“It’s great to get Victor signed long-term and before the start of training camp,” Manning said. “Obviously, he has been a big part of our offense. He has worked really hard on the field to become the player he is and I look forward to continuing our work together.”
And as they continue to work together, the questions Manning gets about Cruz will focus on football, not contracts.
