“I’m pretty confident that we’ll end up reaching a deal with (Cruz),”  Mara said, per the New York Daily News. “This is not that atypical a situation. Player contracts, particularly with star players like Victor, can tend to drag on from time to time. I think we’ll get it done.”

Mara says it’s important to the Giants to get a deal done.

“This is the right place for him to play,” Mara said. “He’s a star in this area. He’s an important part of our team, and I think we’ll eventually get a deal done.

“But it’s just a process that you have to go through. And we’re going through it right now. There’s communication, and it’s slow but steady, and I think at some point we’ll reach a deal.”
