According to Rotoworld.com, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported on NFL 32 that the New York Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz are currently at a stalemate with their contract negotiations.
“The issue here is that Cruz is one of the dominant slot receivers in football,” Werder explained. “But none of the slot receivers in the NFL rank among the top-salaried receivers. It’s all outside receivers. So he’s put in a situation with his agent Tom Condon, they’ve gotta convince the Giants that he should make more money than say, Wes Welker.” Welker is making $6 million a year in Denver. Cruz is believed to be seeking at least $8 million annually.
This is how contract negotiations go some times. One minute things are going great and the next minute, they’re going nowhere.
