While making the media rounds on Wednesday morning, Manning said that Cruz switching to agent Tom Condon, who also represents the Pro Bowl quarterback, will only help the ongoing negotiations. He also said, jokingly, that he text Condon to "make sure" the situation works out.
One interesting point Manning did make was how well Cruz fits into the Giants' offensive system and how he'd be taking a chance to seek a similar fit elsewhere.
"He fits very well into our offense. … You never know, if you go to another offense, maybe it doesn't fit as well," Manning said.
But does Easy-E, who has already begun his 2013 workouts, truly believe Cruz will be back this season and beyond?
"I do. I think that's what I have to and want to believe," Manning said.
Finally, Manning also said he's open to restructuring or re-working his contract if it meant helping the organization, but admits he's not yet been approached to do that.
"I’m always up for listening and figuring out what I can do to help the cause," he said.
