New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin wants to keep restricted free agent receiver Victor Cruz onboard but he stated on Tuesday that he’s not a fan of the process of doing so.
More times than not this is the only time of the year that NFL head coaches feel somewhat helpless.
The business of the game is clouded by agents, general managers and lawyers that are all pushing for the best thing for their agenda.
In most organizations, the process is not as simple as the coaches would like it to be.
This brings us back to Coughlin who told NJ.Com all about how he feels about everything pertaining to the salsa man Victor Cruz.
“I like to think that I can control everything, and that I can have something to do with making sure that something gets done that I think would be beneficial to everyone,” Coughlin said. “And certainly I believe that about Victor. We want Victor to be a Giant until the end of his career, but obviously he and his people, his agents, they’ve got to make that call. It’s a little bit frustrating in that you’d like to have it done, that’s all.”
Coughlin very rarely speaks to players through the media.
So I doubt that is the case here.
He went on to state that he spoke to Cruz two week ago “about a lot of things, not just about (his contract).”
When asked if he told Cruz how he felt, Coughlin stated ”well, in my own terms, yes.”
I wonder if shades of the old Coughlin dictated those terms or if it was the kinder, gentler Coughlin that spoke.
Either way, regardless of how frustrated the coach may be, it’s doubtful that the Giants will let Cruz hit the street this year, next year or anytime in the near future.
