ESPN's Chris Mortensen reiterated on NFL Live that the Giants are very confident Victor Cruz will sign a long-term contract before training camp.
Mortensen stated on NFL 32 last week that he'd be "shocked" if no deal was in place before camp, and an agreement could go down within the "next ten days." Mort took it a step further Monday. "Everybody I've spoken to expects that deal to absolutely get done," he said. "To a 100 percent degree of certainty, that Victor Cruz will have a new contract by the time the Giants open training camp." It sounds like negotiations are hot and heavy. Cruz is believed to be seeking $15-18 million guaranteed and around $9 million per year.
