According to Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com, reports coming out of the Victor Cruz camp say a training camp holdout is a very real possibility.
Cruz will sign his one-year, $2.879 million restricted free agency tender in hopes of getting a long-term deal done.
Cruz stayed away from OTAs and mandatory minicamp, but now that he’s under contract a holdout could be quite costly.
Since Cruz is now under contract, he will be subject to fines in the amount of $30,000 per day if he doesn’t show. But he potentially would have lost $2.289 million if the Giants had rescinded the restricted free agency tender on Monday and replaced it with an offer of $590,000. At $30,000 per day, Cruz can afford 76 days of fines before he’d rack up $2.289 million.
