“It has to be a concern because when the restricted free agency period is over, you would hope that things would move fast. What we want is exactly what I said the other day. We want a win-win. We want Victor to be proud to be a New York Giant, proud of his contract,” Coughlin said, via the New York Post.
Coughlin says the Giants really want Cruz back.
“The New York Giants want him back as badly as we’ve ever wanted anybody,” Coughlin said, “And so we like the thing to be settled and over with and we wish it would be that way so that he could be in here working with the quarterback in the offseason. And the sooner it gets settled, the better off we will be.”
Giants general manager Jerry Reese isn’t as concerned as Coughlin.
“I’m not sure,” Reese said when asked on ESPN New York 98.7 how he thinks Cruz’s contract situation will play out. “Victor has options. He is weighing all of his options and he is allowed to do that. And he should do that.”
Reese says it’s all buisness.
“We are not mad at Victor,” Reese said. “Victor is not upset with us. It’s just business. And we are hoping things work out.”
