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.

How Good Are the New York Giants After Roller-Coaster Start to 2014 Season?

Oct 13 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

So just who is this New York Giants team, and what can we expect moving forward after their embarrassing and lackluster 27-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles? As the old saying goes, things aren’t always as bad as they seem, as was the case in their three losses so far, games in which they have been outscored the first two weeks of the season, when New York was outscored 87-28. On the other hand, things certainly aren’t as good as they appeared in the three-gam ...
