New York Giants owner John Mara are echoing the words of his general manager Jerry Reese in believing contract talks with receiver Victor Cruz are moving along.
Mara says big contract negotiations go through many dragged out scenarios before getting hammered out.
While Cruz is balking at the $7-8 million offer the Giants have on the table, Mara feels a deal will get done in time, ad this is the process that both sides have to go through.
“I’m pretty confident that we’ll end up reaching a deal with (Cruz),” Mara said, via Marc Sessler of NFL.com. “This is not that atypical a situation. Player contracts, particularly with star players like Victor, can tend to drag on from time to time.
I think we’ll get it done. This is the right place for him to play. He’s a star in this area, he’s an important part of our team, and I think we’ll eventually get a deal done, but it’s just a process that you have to go through. And we’re going through it right now. There’s communication, and it’s slow but steady, and I think at some point we’ll reach a deal.”
