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.
