New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was hoping that his workouts with both Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks at Duke wouldn’t have been the last time he’s seen them.
“I was just really hoping (the Duke workouts) would be a little starter course to the spring, not a substitute for what we’re doing on the field right now,” Manning said, per the New York Daily News. “This is stuff where we’re getting to go against cornerbacks. You get to work your technique.”
Manning would like to spend time with Cruz and Nicks to help them continue to refine their skills.
“They’ve run these plays hundreds of times before, so they’ll be able to get in the flow of things,” Manning said. “But you’d still like them back here just to work on things that we didn’t do as well last year. They know what they’re doing. It’s just a matter of improving how they’re doing it sometimes.”
This is certainly the business part of the NFL and unlike Manning, both Cruz and Nicks are waiting to get their big contracts.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the deadline for Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz to sign a new contract is June 17th.

Accoriding to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network, the feeling around the New York Giants locker room is that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will show up for next week’s mini-camp.
The sense in NYG locker room is that Hakeem Nicks will attend mandatory minicamp which begins Tuesday.

I would truly be shocked if Nicks didn’t show up...
It's very rare that you find Eli Manning wearing his feelings on his sleeve but it doesn't mean the New York Giants quarterback won't express disappointment with just a few words.
That's the notion teammates are getting after neither of Manning's favorite targets — Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks — have shown up for any of the Giants' off-season workouts...
Hey Eli, do me a favor and either smile or take a damn sip of that iced coffee that we are pretending to tell people that you like it. Thanks.
