According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz hasn’t been signed to an offer sheet by any of the other 31 NFL teams and isn’t expected to be before tonight’s midnight deadline.
A football tweet: No offer sheet from an opposing team for Victor Cruz at this point, and there isn't one expected tonight. Not surprising.

Cruz will now have three options going forward.
- Sign his restricted free agent tender.
- Sign a long-contract extension
- Hold out.
I believe Cruz will end up holding out at least until training camp.
