May 7 2013 - WR Victor Cruz isn't under contract, but New York Giants CEO John Mara remains confident a deal will get done.
"I'm pretty confident that we'll end up reaching a deal," Mara said in an interview Tuesday on NFL Network. "This is not that atypical a situation. Player contracts, particularly with star players like Victor, can tend to drag on from time to time. I think we'll get it done."
Cruz has been seeking a long-term contract with the Giants and turned down a deal at the outset of the offseason worth a reported $7 million per season. He did not participate in the Giants' voluntary offseason workouts this week and hasn't signed the $2.879 million tender.
"This is the right place for him to play," Mara said.
Apr 18 2013 - General manager Jerry Reese said that there's nothing new to report regarding receiver Victor Cruz's contract situation.
"Victor's not here. He's a free agent exploring all of his options, so we'll see where it goes," said Reese.
When asked if he would assume that Cruz will be part of the Giants' roster this year, he said, "I don't assume anything. I can tell you this. When we get ready to play, we'll have 53 players out there ready to play. I'm not sure if Victor will be out there or not. I don't assume anything."
Reese pointed out that "one player doesn't make your team," and that they are not going to let his unresolved contract situation affect their plans for the draft.
"If Victor's not here, we have other receivers here. It's all about team for us," said Reese.
