Report: Victor Cruz has $7 million per year offer from Giants

Victor Cruz - USA TODAY Sports

Victor Cruz reportedly has a contract offer from the Giants that would pay him $7 million per year. Read about that and more in today's Giants' notebook.

What is going on currently between Victor Cruz and the New York Giants? well, the New York Daily News is reporting that Cruz has an offer from the Giants of $7 million per year, exceeding the $6 million per season Wes Welker got from the Denver Broncos.

NFL.com added that the offer "would seem to be in the three- to four-year range."

Cruz is, of course, a restricted free agent and there has been much speculation about whether or not he would receive an offer sheet from another team. This tweet a couple of days ago from Adam Schefter would seem to indicate that if Cruz is holding out hope that a team will step forward and force the Giants to pay even more that isn't going to happen.

Cruz would seemingly have these options:

- Sign the deal the Giants have reportedly offered him.

- Sign the first-round tender the Giants offered him, worth $2.879 million, and continue to try to negotiate a richer long-term deal. Head to unrestricted free agency next year if he doesn't get a satisfactory offer from the Giants.

- Continue to wait and hope that the Giants offer increases, or someone does unexpectedly make him an offer.

Arthur Brown 2013 NFL Draft scouting report - SBNation.com
Conclusion: Brown will be an early candidate for defensive rookie of the year if he finds the right scheme fit for his skills and gets on the field early. He has the instincts to make a quick transition to the NFL and the speed to make tons of tackles as a rookie. Whether he comes off the board in the mid-first round or early second round, Brown should be an instant impact player.
