Victor Cruz not expected to attend this week’s minicamp

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to report to this week’s minicamp since he’s under contract, but Victor Cruz z isn’t expected to show up since he’s not under contract.

The good news is Nicks will likely be at the Giants’ mandatory full-team mini-camp next week – at least “I would expect that he would,” Coughlin said. If he doesn’t, the Giants can fine him up to $66,150 — $11,025 for the first missed day, $22,050 for the second and $33,075 for the third.

Cruz, though, “is a different category,” Coughlin said. He can’t be punished for not showing up because he’s unsigned. In other words, Cruz will almost certainly not attend unless he decides to sign his one-year, $2.879 million tender or receives a long-term contract extension by then.
