Victor Cruz Restructures Contract
The New York Giants had a big day in free agency yesterday. But one of their quieter moves may be one of the most important.
The Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz agreed to restructure his current contract in order to help the team out salary cap wise. Cruz' original contract had him scheduled to make upwards of $8 million this upcoming season. With the restructured deal, Cruz now makes a base salary of $1.3 million with a possibility of making $5.5 million with play incentives.
Cruz is in his seventh season with the Giants. A big part of the Super Bowl XLVI champions, Cruz hasn't played since injuring his knee in a game against the Eagles in October of 2014.
This move helps the Giants out on offense immensely. The Giants were in the mix for former Bengals wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu until they agreed to go elsewhere. The Giants now know they have at least two healthy recievers headed into camp this summer.
