    Watch this Space: Victor Cruz

    A few weeks ago I was thinking about all the options at WR in terms of FA and trades. Larry Fitz has been mentioned on this board and quite rightly so he is class and a great WR. But one name that I pondered on for a while was Victor Cruz. I was trying to consider if he would be a good fit in Miami and the positives outweighed the cons. He is young dynamic, fast and spectacular. Off the field he is a popular guy in the Hispanic community. Stephen Ross is looking for an exciting product with people coming to see it. There seems to be a fit with Victor Cruz as a player who would be a playmaking threat on the field as well as a marketable commodity who would attract the local fan market in Miami.

    He is currently renegotiating a new contract but its not going well as the Giants do not want to overpay him. There is talk off a possible holdout and Cruz becoming a Restricted Free Agent.

    Jeff Ireland has said all options are open including trades in acquring players this offseason.

    I'm not saying Cruz to Miami is going to happen. But there is food for thought to why it could happen.

    V.Cruz is a special player that never have an opportunity to play somewhere other than NY for the next few years.

    Even if he holds out he's not going anywhere, NY holds all the cards and would be out of their minds to let him go anywhere else. The NYG are a well run franchise they won't let talent just walk away... ask Osi!

    NY want him to remain a Giant. But if they cant get a deal done I wonder if Miami could turn his head by offering him a lucrative offer. The allure of our tropical weather and Latin American/Hispanic community might sweeten him.

    Special player but isnt he a Giants fan from New York? He would be expensive costing a first round pick, but I think the Giants will get a deal done with him anyway.
    Im selling a club level ticket to the Dolphins v Raiders in London - will sell it for below face value. PM me if your interested.

    I don't see any talent close to Victor Cruz on this draft. I would throw a first round pick in a nutshell for him. Ireland is a nice trader, so he could include another things in exchange allowing this team to recover a 3rd or 4th round pick.

    The thing is Jerry Reese, NY Giants' GM, is acting rude by asking Victor Cruz to sign for less than $5M/year with a pathetic signing bonus.
    Mr. Reese is arguing there's a salary cap and NY Giants' roster has important holes at defense.

    We all know Victor Cruz deserves top WR money and he would be welcomed in Miami to the point that minority owner Gloria Stefan would make a new music hit for his dancing celebrations.
    Once upon a time Cruz got his dream come true in NY, but Miami could be his happily ever after paradise.

    It's early. Those reports come put simply to taper Cruz's expectations and try to make him pull back. The owner says stuff like this to get the fans and media on ownership's side.

    Cruz loves NY and is a seriously big-time player. They'd be nuts to let him test the market, even with a tender.

    (but could you imagine the love he would get in South Florida...)

    You guys are so sure to say Victor Cruz isn't going anywhere, but you all must forget how regularly the Giants switch out receivers each year. Idk but it seems as if each year the Giants draft a receiver in the 3rd or 2nd round, they sometimes even draft 2 and they possibly prepared for the worst with Cruz by drafting Reuben Randle last year. All I'm saying is in the eyes of the Giants, Victor is expendable.

    I have no idea where you think one of the best players on their team is expendable. They hold the cards, all of them. They can workout a deal their comfortable with and if doesn't sign he plays under the restricted number. If some crazy team threw an unreal offer they can simply match, and when is the last time a team did that? The G-men once again hold all the cards!
