ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Live today that the New York Giants expect to sign Victor Cruz to an extension before camp opens up.
Rotoworld.com has the story.
Mortensen stated on NFL 32 last week that he’d be “shocked” if no deal was in place before camp, and an agreement could go down within the “next ten days.” Mort took it a step further Monday. “Everybody I’ve spoken to expects that deal to absolutely get done,” he said. “To a 100 percent degree of certainty, that Victor Cruz will have a new contract by the time the Giants open training camp.” It sounds like negotiations are hot and heavy. Cruz is believed to be seeking $15-18 million guaranteed and around $9 million per year.
Training camp opens up in just over three weeks, so we’ll see if anything happens before then.
