After signing his contract extension today, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told the media that he never considered playing this coming season without a contract extension.
Victor Cruz said he never considered playing this year under one-year tender and taking his chance as an unrestricted free agent next March.

Part of why Cruz didn't want to play under one-year tender? He said he didn't want to face questions abt contract every day from media!
