ESPN’s Adam Schefter strongly believes that not one NFL team is going to sign Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz to an offer sheet. Strong belief: There’s as much chance a team will sign Victor Cruz to offer sheet as there is one will deal for Tim Tebow. Neither happening — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21, 2013 While I believe Cruz is one of the best overall receivers in the NFL, many people disagree with me and believe he can only be productive out of the slot. It seems like people forget that when Cruz had his break out season in 2011, he played on the outside only because he didn’t know how to play the slot.  As the season went on he got a hang of it and has flourished ever since.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
