Report: Giants, Victor Cruz “on the 2-yard line”

Earlier today it was reported that a deal between the New York Giants and Victor Cruz is imminent.  It sounds like they might be close though.

According to Lenn Robbins of the New York Post,  the Giants and Cruz aren’t too far away from getting an extension done.

A source told The Post that Cruz and the Giants, ‘are on the 2-yard line,’ in successfully completing their lengthy negotiation on a new, lucrative long-term contract.

“Both sides just need to give a little bit,” said the source. “But it’s going to happen.”

It could be that both sides are really close to getting something done, or it could be a move to create more leverage by pressuring the the other side into making a deal.
