IFWT_Victor Cruz

Victor Cruz’s salsa dancing in the end zone has become a distant memory as Giants fans welcomed a new dancer and star receiver in Odell Beckham Jr.  But I’m sure fans would like to see both men on the field.  Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon in 2014 that cut his season short then missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing calf surgery.  Now if he wants to return to the field as a Giant at all, he must agree to their terms.

Cruz has previously said that he is willing to accept a pay cut in order to remain with the team and now he will have to do just that.

The Giants are in negotiations with agent Tom Condon regarding Cruz, who has been told he will be released unless his contract is renegotiated, according to a source for ESPN.

With free agency scheduled to begin Wednesday, the Giants and Cruz consider this a priority and are working toward a resolution. It is not known how much the Giants are willing to pay Cruz, who hasn’t appeared in an NFL game in 17 months because of injuries.

Cruz, who turns 30 during the 2016 season, is scheduled to make $7.9 million in 2016 with a cap hit of $9.9 million. That would be the second-highest total on the Giants’ roster, behind quarterback Eli Manning.
