New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz broke the team's record for receiving yards with 1,536 last season and scored nine touchdowns along the way for his $450,000 salary. He even threw in some salsa-dancing end-zone celebrations for free.
He pulled in four catches for 25 yards and a touchdown in the team's Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. Now the 25-year-old who went undrafted out of Massachusetts in 2010 would like to be paid some bigger bucks.
"I think I was paid, you know, relative to where I came in this year and, you know, I came in as a free agent so that's the salary I was on, so I don't feel like I was underpaid," Cruz said, according to the New York Post. "I mean, I feel like after my performance this year, you know, I feel like I deserve to be paid more money at this point. But that's something I'll let my agents and those people take care of and I'll just go out there and play the game."
Next season, Cruz, the winner of this past season's Vizio Top Value Performer Award, is slated to make $490,000.
