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.
