Worth more but I think thats what an agreement would look like.


5 years for $43 million comes out to be $8.6M per season, so you sir are spot on. Well done.

I think this deal is good for both sides.

I just hope that Hakeem Nicks still walks and comes to Carolina.

Why do you want Nicks to leave the Giants?

It's an extension of his tender he signed this year (2.something or whatever) so it's more like 6 years 7.7 per year. Great deal for the Giants FO.

Actually he wasn't. It's an extension on top of his tender. So add the 2.87 million dollar tender on top of the 43 million and that comes out to about 7.6 million per year for 6 years. Giants did good work on this deal and Cruz got the guarantees he wanted so win/win IMO.

Personally would have waited a year before a deal like this, as I'm of the belief Nicks is the more important WR for them. But hey, I'm a Raiders fan. What do I know about having good receivers anyway? Laughing

Oh dont worry, any reasonable giants fan or any fan for that matter would agree with you.

Why is it unreasonable to think that Cruz is more important then Nicks? A healthy Nicks, I would agree, would be more important then Cruz but Nicks has terrible troubles staying 100% healthy. Nicks can't be more important then Cruz while Cruz is on the field and Nicks is in the trainers room.

That's a pretty good deal for the Giants.

Obviously if Nicks is not on the field, having one is better than neither. Cruz's success is dependent on Nicks being on the field though.

Does the 15m guaranteed include the 2.87 tender for this season or not? If it does it's basically a two year deal for a little over 7.7. If not they locked him up for the next three years at around 6 which would be oustanding on their part and flexible enough to sign Nicks next year. The 6yr/45m BS means nothing in the long run compared to the 15-18m guaranteed. That number along with Eli and JPP eventual contract will dictate Nicks future as a Giant. Good for NYG ,bad for the rest of the NFCE.
