One of the most tenuous contract negotiations of the off-season finally came to an end Monday when the New York Giants signed wide receiver Victor Cruz to a 5-year extension worth $43 million. As long and drawn out as the talks were in the end it was Cruz that folded because he was tired of all the "back and forth."
Maybe after he listens to Jay-Z's new album his new agent can explain to him how he let the Giants get the best of him because this deal could not favor the Giants anymore than it does.
Most folks will look at this day and think that Cruz did just fine getting a deal worth right around $8 million a season. What they may be forgetting is that Cruz wanted $10 million/season.
Now to you and I it may look like this guy is making a killing either way; he should be grateful for the deal that he has. As a restricted free agent he wasn't due any more than his tender which was less than $3 million. This way he has a guarantee...
