NFL: NY Giants, WR Victor Cruz Agree to 5-Year, $43 M Deal

Jul 8 2013, 9:17pm CDT | by

The New York Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz agreed to a five-year deal on Monday reportedly worth $43 million.

Victor Cruz will be doing his touchdown salsa dance celebration with the New York Giants for at least five more years. 

Cruz agreed to a five-year mega-deal with the Giants on Monday worth $43 million, making him the highest-paid receiver they've ever had. The New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano writes Cruz is expected to sign the deal, which includes $15.6 million in guaranteed money, on Tuesday.

Vacchiano did a bit of Math on Cruz's expected haul in the next six years which adds up to $45.879 million. This also includes the $2.879 million he is slated to receive this season under the restricted free agent tender he signed in June.  

ESPN New York breaks it down further by saying Cruz has a $9.5 million signing bonus and an additional $1.5 million roster bonus. 

Cruz says he's happy to get it over with. 

"It was fun to finally get it done with. I was smiling from ear to ear the whole time; I couldn't stop grinning. Good to put my ink on that piece of paper and feel good about it and feel confident about it and get back to football.

"I just knew that we were in this for the long haul, we were going to be patient and wait this thing out, and make sure we make the right decision in the right way and not feel any regrets."

Cruz added he doesn't want to play anywhere else, per USA Today Sports. 

"I think my deal is tremendous. I think to be able to be in a top position as a slot receiver amongst the best in the league, I think it's definitely a great deal. You don't want to be anywhere else. I don't want to play anywhere else."

The deal also assured quarterback Eli Manning of a top-notch slot receiver for many years to come. In the past two seasons, Cruz caught 168 passes for 2,628 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Houston Texans vs. NY Giants: Breaking Down New York's Game Plan

Sep 17 2014 11:38pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

And in the NFL, wouldn't it make sense that, with 16 games and with there being plenty of overlap between divisional opponents, every game would be a “must-win” in order to improve on ...
