There were a few rumors that Victor Cruz might have gone elsewhere since the Giants did not meet to the Pro-Bowler’s demands when contract talks first started. Now it seems that Cruz will be doing the salsa dance for the Giants for some time. NFL.com and other sources are saying that Cruz is working with the Giants’ front office to get a long term deal done before he reports to training camp at the end of this month. The Giants and Cruz did come to terms with his first-round restricted free-agent tender that is worth $2.879 million. Now other sources are telling ESPN that both sides are coming to terms on a contract that could make a Giant for the rest of his career. Last night, Cruz tweeted: “Good things come to those who wait.” That could mean that his contract could mean big bucks for the long term. Earlier this year the Giants looked to sign Cruz on a multi-year deal worth around $8 million per year. Cruz wanted more money and felt that he was worth it. That was one reason why people thought Cruz might have been looking elsewhere. Back in February Giants owner John Mara wanted Cruz back, but not willing to overpay for the Pro Bowl wide receiver. Mara said back in February, “We certainly want him back, but like with any player, there’s a limit to where we’re going to go. 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.” It seems that the two sides are able to meet in the middle. For Cruz he is fortunate to have a great quarterback in Eli Manning to help keep up his Pro Bowl numbers. That is probably one reason why Cruz is looking to stay in New York.
