Sources say the Giants’ offer to Victor Cruz exceeds $7 million per year, with a sizable amount of guaranteed money in a long-term deal that would still leave the 26-year-old Cruz time in his career to sign another contract, Gary Myers of the New York Daily News reports.
Switching to agent Tom Condon, who is a deal maker with a good relationship with the Giants, should mean they get a contract done rather than Cruz playing for the $2.879 million tender.
At the moment, it doesn’t appear Cruz is going to get an offer sheet from another team. Condon is Eli Manning’s agent and holds an important place in Giants history. In the days before the 2004 draft, he broke the news to the Chargers that Archie Manning said Eli would not play for them, which forced the draft day trade to the Giants.
