Victor Cruz accepts pay cut, sticks with NYG-- Wed Mar 9 10:15 pm --
$1.3 million base which could escalate to $5.5 million
The New York Giants are bringing back receiver Victor Cruz for 2016, but for much less money than he was scheduled to make originally.
A source confirmed Wednesday night that Cruz had agreed to a reduced salary for 2016, an outcome that has been inevitable for some time because Cruz hasn't played since tearing his right patellar tendon in Week 6 of the 2014 season.
FF Today's Take:The Giants made it known they would release Cruz if he didn't accept a pay cut. As a result, Cruz now has a base salary of is $1.3 million which could escalate to $5.5 million if incentives are met. Cruz needs to establish in off-season workouts that he can be a reliable option in this offense. His durability is a serious question mark for fantasy owners.
NYG to release Cruz if he doesn't accept pay cut-- Mon Mar 7 10:35 am --
FF Today's Take:The oft-injured wide receiver is set to count almost $10 million against the cap which is too much for a player with a significant injury history and risk. With Rueben Randle set to hit the open market, the Giants are in need of wide receiver help so a deal could still be worked out.
