New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was a guest on Pro Football Talk on the NBC Sports Network as he continues his book tour. He made it clear that he wants wide receiver Victor Cruz to never play for another team.
”We want Victor Cruz to be a Giant, want him to be a Giant forever,” Coughlin told Erik Kuselias. “We have to have some patience here, everybody has to understand the circumstance. Victor is a restricted free agent, so there may be further negotiations to get to the point that both sides want to get to. We have to show some patience but we all want him to be here and I think he wants to be here. It’s a great story, he’s a great young man. It’s a wonderful circumstance that he brings to our team an undrafted player that makes a difference in this team’s performance and helps by virtue of a great year for us to go forth and win Super Bowl XLVI.”
Coughlin and the Giants know how important Cruz is to their team and I believe they’ll end up working something out. You can argue that without him, the Giants wouldn’t have had a shot at winning Super Bowl XLVI.
