Explain this to me:
If Cruz gets a first round tender and receives an offer, the Giants can match, right?
I could see many teams offering an insane amount of cash which the Giants can't possibly match.
The cap appears extremely tight with Cruz, Nicks and JPP contracts in the very near future.
I wouldn't risk allowing any team to offer Cruz a contract. I'd sign him prior to the season ending.
"We have been watching and waiting, but I wouldn't say we intend to continue to do that. I think you watch and wait to try and assess a situation and act accordingly. It might involve more waiting. It might involve moving in one direction or another. We've done plenty of watching and waiting. If we can move in a particular direction, we might do that."
