The New York Daily News is reporting that Giants wide receiver is in an Empire State of Mind, that’s from a management point of view, and the type of contract he is pursuing.
The newspaper is reporting from two NFL sources close to the situation that Cruz is set to join Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency.
Cruz, the Giants’ salsa-happy star receiver, is expected to soon become the next high-profile New York athlete to join forces with Jay Z’s new sports agency, according to two NFL sources familiar with Cruz’s plans. He will likely join Yankees slugger Robinson Cano in the new Roc Nation Sports stable, which was founded by Shawn (Jay-Z) Carter and is associated with CAA.
Cruz fired Malik Shareef last month and joined CAA and Tom Condon. The firing of Shareef came after he spent almost a year and a half going back and forth with the Giants about a new deal.
Sources say even after Cruz joins Roc Nation Sports, Condon will still be the point guy on contract negotiations with the Giants.
