New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is one of the best bargain's in the NFL. But that's all about to change after the season as Cruz is set to become a restricted free agent.
Cruz will make $577,000 this season. If the Giants cant make a deal with Cruz, other teams will have the chance to sign him. The Giants will have the right to match any offer from other teams.
"I'm just in a position right now where I'm just focused on football," Cruz said during his radio spot on WFAN (via The Star-Ledger and NFL.com). "I have people, my agents and things like that, to worry about that stuff. But as a human being, you obviously want to -- you hope you get it done before the season's over, obviously.
"My team and my agents, my team on my side, we would like to get it done before the season's (over)," Cruz said. "We don't want to drag it along, and become something that blocks the team in the offseason, and something that is in the media every day.
"We don't want it to get like that. We want to just knock it out halfway through the season, or during the season at the very least, and put it behind (us)."
