New York Giants’ receiver and noted Cowboys tormentor Victor Cruz has yet to show up to the Giants’ voluntary offseason workouts as he hopes to land a longterm deal with the team, a fact that has head coach Tom Coughlin a bit concerned. But co-owner John Mara is confident that a deal will be worked out soon.
"I'm pretty confident that we'll end up reaching a deal with (Cruz)," Mara told the 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.
"This is the right place for him to play. He's a star in this area, he's an important part of our team and I think we'll eventually get a deal done, but it's just a process that you have to go through. And we're going through it right now. There's communication, and it's slow but steady, and I think at some point we'll reach a deal."
Cruz has yet to sign his tender offer from the Giants, which is worth over $2.7 million.
