New York Giants, Victor Cruz Reportedly Reach a Deal: Who Will Benefit Most From Contract?
A tad underrated, Victor Cruz has produced at a very high level for each of the last two seasons. The NFL is a pass-first league, so it has plenty of wide receivers that can get the job done, but Cruz is a particularly exceptional talent. The New York Giants‘ faithful were pleasantly surprised when the undrafted wideout made the Pro-Bowl in 2012, yet they had to know that No. 80′s payday was coming.
Well, after an offseason full of pondering on both sides, the Giants and Cruz have reportedly reached a long-term agreement. Finally, the wide receiver can report to Giants camp and stop crying about his contract — for a 26-year-old male, Cruz handled this offseason saga like a teenage girl.
Eli Manning is probably the one happiest about this news as the Giants’ quarterback is at his best when hitting No. 80 on a regular basis. Cruz reeled in 86 passes last season which was the most of any Giants’ wide receiver and by a long shot. In fact, the 2011 season saw him do some remarkable things as well: Cruz’s led the team in catched with 82 and his 1,536 receiving yards also was a team high. Plucking Cruz out of New York is a lot like yanking Wes Welker right off of the New England Patriots roster as they both have a huge impact on any offense.
While the phrase “Long-term deal” often causes fans to cringe, the Giants had no choice but to lock up a guy who has perfected the slot position.
