New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is set to become a restricted free agent after this season, but he is hoping to get a new contract before then, reports the Star-Ledger.
Cruz is making $540,000 this season and the team can sign him to a one-year tender after the season. But Cruz wants long-term security.
“We would like to get it done before the season’s (over),” Cruz told WFAN Radio. “We don’t want to drag it along, and (have it) become something that blocks the team in the offseason, and something that is in the media every day. We don’t want it to get like that. We want to just knock it out halfway through the season, or during the season at the very least, and put it behind (us).”
