The Daily News reported that Cruz’s last request under agent Tom Condon was closer to the $10 million to $11 million range per year.
Cruz wants to be paid the going rate for a No. 1 receiver entering his prime, while the Giants are offering elite slot-receiver money.
With Hakeem Nicks also in the market for a new contract, theGiants are faced with quite the conundrum at wide receiver. Although Cruz has a significant edge in reliability and consistency the past two seasons, Nicks is viewed by the team’s brass as a more legitimate No. 1 receiver.
No matter who gets paid first, the Giants likely will join the Seattle Seahawks as the only franchises with two receivers earning more than $8 million per season.
