ESPN: Shocking if New York Giants, Victor Cruz fail to reach long-term deal

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN's Chris Mortensen said he would be "shocked" if the Giants and Victor Cruz could not reach a long-term agreement before the start of training camp.

On "NFL32," ESPN senior reporter Chris Mortensen said he would be "shocked" if the New York Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz failed to reach a long-term agreement before the start of training camp.

According to Mort, a deal could be reached within the next 10 days.

Earlier this month, Cruz signed his one-year restricted free agent tender worth $2.879 million. Soon after, ESPN reported Cruz and the team would "continue talks for a long-term deal before camp starts."

It's previously been reported that Cruz had been offered a deal worth about $8 million annually by the team and would be unwilling to settle for anything less than $9 million per season. According to Mort, the deal is expected to be a compromise somewhere in the middle.

Cruz is also seeking between $15-18 million in guaranteed money, according to reports.
