The talk around the New York Giants has been about the team signing restricted free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz to a long-term contract, but the Giants are putting more emphasis on getting a new deal signed with wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Giants view Nicks as the No. 1 receiver and want to sign him to a long-term contract.  He has one year remaining on his current deal.   Nicks, 25, dealt with a knee and foot injury in 2012 and failed to record a 1,000 yard receiving year for the first time since 2009. In 2010 and 2011, Nicks averaged 77.5 catches, 1,122 yards and nine touchdowns. The Giants would also like to keep 26-year-old Cruz, but Giants co-owner John Mara has said he wants Cruz on the team but only for a reasonable price.   "We certainly want him back, but like with any player, there's a limit to where we're going to go," the Giants' co-owner told reporters Friday. "He's been a terrific player for us, he's a fan favorite, he does a lot for our franchise, but there is a limit." Cruz has averaged 84 receptions, 1,314 yards and 9.5 touchdowns in the past two seasons.
