PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants
According to the NY Daily News, Victor Cruz is ready to lower his salary demands for a new deal. It’s obvious to everyone that the talented slot receiver would prefer to stay with the Giants and this is what he needed to do. The Giants are as frugal as they come and weren’t going to shell out the reported $10-11 million a year Cruz was looking for. Slot receivers just can’t command that type of change yet. But the culture in the NFL is shifting and in a couple of years, that number might be feasible. But for now, we know from sources that the Giants were looking to pay around the $8 million dollar a year range. The hope is, that the new number Victor is shooting for will get a deal done in time for him to show up to all camp work. No matter what though, Cruz should still be considered one of the better fantasy options in football.

Dwight Freeney’s father says his son would love to play for the Giants but “they’re broke”

Dwight Freeney’s father Hugh was on SiriusXM NFL Radio and said his son would love to play for the New York Giants, but “they’re broke.” Well the Giants could afford to pay Freeney, but he would have to accept a contract that’s worth the veteran minimum and I don’t think he’s going to do that.
