A source told ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter on Sunday that the Giants are focused on an extension for Hakeem Nicks, not Cruz. Nicks has one year left on his contract, but the Giants reportedly want him locked up as the No. 1 receiver. The 25-year-old has two 1,000-yard seasons in his four-year NFL career. Injuries kept him from three games in 2012.
Victor Cruz has had 2,628 yards, 19 touchdowns and a Pro Bowl selection in the last two seasons. While Hakeem Nicks missed a few games due to injuries. Cruz is also arguably the more recognizable face of the receivers not only because of commercialization but his aforementioned production.
I’m sure the Giants would love to keep both but Cruz’ market value may make that a tough task.
