New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz wants to stay in New York, but could it be for all the wrong reasons?
Cruz has been a shooting star, his story is made for television, and he’s even has his mom in on the act doing soup commercials.
Rapper turned sports agent Jay-Z and his Roc Nation sports management company wants the talented wideout to stay in New York because he has more earning potential in the city than if he were to go somewhere else.
According to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, the big city of dreams is where Jay-Z and Cruz wants to stay, and make the most money.
"[Cruz] told his agents not to sign him with another team because he wants to work with Jay-Z," a source told Yahoo!. "There might have been a couple of teams interested, but he didn't want to go anywhere."
‘Restricted free agent Victor Cruz seems unlikely to report for the New York Giants' strength and conditioning program without a new contract next week. That doesn't mean that he's hoping another team steps up with an offer sheet, though.
Cruz has told at least two people that he plans to stay with the Giants long-term, reports Yahoo! Sports. Now that Jay-Z's Roc Nation is handling Cruz's business and marketing opportunities, the wide receiver sees staying in the Big Apple as his wisest career move.’
