New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was showing off the new Giants Nike uniforms in Brooklyn on Tuesday, and he stated that he doesn’t plan on holding out for more money.
Cruz said that a hold out is “not in my vocabulary.”
“I’m not frustrated at all. I just want to go out there and play football,” said Cruz. “When I was young, it wasn’t about the money. It wasn’t about the fame and fortune. It was just going out there and playing football. Regardless of how short-term this career can be, I just want to go out there and play. And all that stuff will take care of itself.”
After setting the Giants single season record in receiving yards in 2011, Cruz is only schedule to make $540,000 in 2012. He’ll be a restricted free agent next offseason and that’s when I expect the Giants to lock him with a long-term deal.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
