It’s no secret that Victor Cruz wants a raise in his next contract from the New York Giants. Most fans will agree that he deserves one. His comments got many players around the league suggesting he make a bold, dramatic mid-season move to get what he wants in his new contract. But thankfully for us Giant fans Victor promises that a mid-season holdout “will never happen.” “I want to continue to help my team win. I want to win championships. I want to win football games,” Cruz said Wednesday. “I’m not just holding out because I want to worry about a contract, and the team’s going to panic if I hold out. That’s not me.” The Giants owe Cruz over a half of million dollars for this season so he can become an unrestricted free agent. His schedule unrestricted free agency would begin in 2014. The 25 year old breakout star expressed back in February he wanted a new deal from the New York Giants after winning the Super Bowl with his team. He promised the team during the off season he would not hold out in training camp for a new deal. He showed up this season in shape and ready to play. Since he’s a man of his word he hopes that the Giants will repay him with a new contract.     Read More Here!
