The catalyst for the change apparently came in March when Cruz fired his agent, Malik Shareef, and signed on with Tom Condonís Creative Artists Agency. Cruz, who was once seeking a contract worth $10 million-$11 million per season, has apparently lowered his demands to a payday much closer to what the Giants are offering.

The Giants are offering Cruz a contract that's worth nearly $8 million per year after they initially were only willing to pay $7 million a year.

Cruz knows he has to take the contract the Giants are offering or play for the 1-year, $2.879 million first round tender contract he was assigned.

The Giants reportedly view him as a slot receiver which is why they aren't willing to pay him over $10 million a year.

He can more than make up the difference in money by creating a chip salsa brand.

Maybe the Giants would of been willing to pay him more if he was taller?

^^ that chick has like 37 inch arms.. Laughing

He was starting to pick up endorsements to, i dont see how for him stay in New York isnt his main focus, even if he has to take a potential salary hit. Long term i think he will make more money being in New York and being the charismatic guy he is.

Glad he didn't let his ego get to him. He's not worth top dollar. I think something around 7 years 52 million is what I'd offer Cruz.
