Giants, Cruz Strike Long-Term Deal

The Giants will pay Victor Cruz $43 million over five years



    It looks like Giants’ wide receiver Victor Cruz will show up to training camp on time and sporting a nice new deal, worth $43 million over five years--$15.6 million of which is guaranteed. Add those figures to the nearly $3 million he's set to make this season and the deal is actually worth about $46 million over the next six years.

    FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer first reported the new deal via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

    Last year, the final of his three-year rookie deal--signed after he was picked up as an undrafted free agent out of UMass--Cruz posted 82 catches for 1,092 yards and ten touchdowns. The year before, he went for 82 catches, 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns while emerging as Eli Manning’s favorite target.

    Cowboys fans probably best remember Cruz for the number he did on Dallas in their win-and-in game on New Year’s Day, 2012. In that game, Cruz was everywhere, catching six passes for 171 yards and a touchdown. New York won that game 31-14 and, a little over a month later, were crowned Super Bowl champions.
