Victor Cruz: Five-Year, $43 Million Extension
Update: Cruz agreed to a five-year, $43 million extension with the Giants "on top of" his one-year restricted free agent tender Monday, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports.

Recommendation: Based on the language used by Glazer, this would appear to roughly be a six-year, $45.879 deal (Cruz's RFA tender was worth $2.879 million). That breaks down to about $7.647 million per year, which would seem to be a very nice deal for the Giants in light of the deals recently signed by Mike Wallace and Dwayne Bowe worth roughly $12 million and $11.2 million per year, respectively. Cruz's 170 catches for 2,628 yards and 19 touchdowns over the last two years safely outpace the numbers posted by Wallace and Bowe over that same span.
