The New York Daily News reports that sides are getting closer on a lucrative deal for the wide receiver and both sides “seem certain” it will eventually get done.
The Giants have secured Cruz with a restricted free agent tender of $2.879 million and on June 17 the club has the option of lowering that offer by more than $2 million to $630,000. That is another compelling reason why a deal could be struck in the next month.
Per the report, Cruz initially sought a package worth an average of $10 million to $11 million annually. The Daily News reports Cruz has lowered his demands, closer to what the team is offering – nearly $8 million per season. Perhaps they will find some common ground in the near future.
