Found May 15, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Giants WR Victor Cruz has lowered his contract demands from previously $10 million to $11 million per season, to “payday much closer to what the Giants are offering,” which was around $8 million per season. This is a considerable development as Cruz’s asking price was holding up negotiations and the possibility of the two sides reaching an agreement. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network also reported earlier that the Giants do indeed value Cruz as more than a slot receiver which gives the Giants a viable reason for offering this substantial of a contract. Cruz has arguably been one of the most effective receivers the past two seasons.  At age 26, Cruz can continue to be effective for several more seasons and actually improve his skills since he has only started 23 games in his career.
