"I was excited to hear this weekend that contract talks are moving in the right direction," Cruz said. "I heard there was some progress on the structure."
As we noted last week, Cruz represents the best bargain in the NFL. In exchange for $540,000, the Giants get one of the most explosive playmakers in football.
Cruz set a team record last season with 1,536 receiving yards. He has become a fan favorite thanks to his propensity for timely scores and signature salsa dance.
The Giants are too smart to let Cruz hit the market as a restricted free agent. After all, what's more predictable than the massive offer Cruz would receive from the New York Jets if given the chance?
