There’s been plenty of talk over the last couple of weeks surrounding the New York Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz considering the two parties have surprisingly been unable to negotiate a new long-term deal. With everything he’s accomplished over the last two seasons, there’s no question Cruz is worthy of finally being paid like some of the other top wide receivers in the league.
Luckily for him, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin seems to be confident enough that a deal will be coming at some point–it’s just a matter of when.
Coughlin recently discussed Cruz’s situation in an interview and made it a clear point that he hopes his wide receiver remains with the team for the rest of his career. Over the last two seasons, Cruz has developed into one of the league’s most dangerous wide receivers as his speed makes it difficult for any opponent to cover.
What’s even more unique about the situation is Cruz wasn’t even drafted into the league and signed as a free agent with the Giants back in 2009 and it’s safe to say the other 31 teams in the NFL regret not taking a chance on the talented wideout. The longer these negotiations drag out, the more nervous Giants fans are going to be about losing their wide receiver, but if Coughlin’s recent interview is any indication–there’s really no reason for any panic just yet as the head coach seems confident the organization will do whatever it takes to make sure he’s around for years to come.
