New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has been voted the NFL's Vizio Top Value Performer for the 2011 season. Of course he has.

What is the Top Value Performer award. Voted on by fans, it signifies the player whose on-field performance most exceeded the value of his 2011 contract. With a salary of $405,000, Cruz was an obvious choice for this honor as he recorded a franchise record 1,536 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns. Cruz finished with the third-most receiving yards in the league, only behind Wes Welker and Calvin Johnson.

The 2011 honorable mention list includes Dallas WR Laurent Robinson, New England TE Rob Gronkowski, Chicago RB Matt Forte and San Francisco LB NaVorro Bowman.

More than 330,000 votes were cast this season, the fourth year that Vizio has sponsored this award.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Cruz will be making a whole lot more than $405,000 next season.
