Report: Patriots were going to make a run at Victor Cruz

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, some sources told him that they believed the New England Patriots would make a run at Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, even though they’d have to give up a first round pick.

Several sources believed the Patriots would make a run at Cruz, but that was prior to Cruz changing agents recently and going with Tom Condon, who the Pats generally don’t do business with. While in the past, in general, restricted free agent activity has been limited some teams are aggressive and looking to make moves to add to the offense, and there are no shortage of teams with abundant cap space.

Even though the Pats never work with Condon, I don’t think you can rule anything out.  They need a deep threat and Cruz is exactly what they’re looking for.
