According to sources close to the situation, the New York Giants and star wide receiver Victor Cruz will have a long-term contract in place prior to the start of training camp on July 26th. No obstacles are expected as negotiations between Cruz and the Giants finally have an end in site. Team sources say that the parameters of the deal are in place, with just final contract language needing to be finalized.
Cruz, a native of Paterson, NJ, came out of nowhere two seasons ago to shock the football world, and help lead the Giants to their second superbowl victory in the last 5 seasons. During the last 2 seasons Cruz has produced 168 catches for 2,628 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Cruz seemed optimistic about the new deal last night, Tweeting, “Good things come to those who wait”. I think it’s safe to say New York Giants fans would agree.
