No, the New York Giants and restricted free agent (RFA) Victor Cruz have not yet agreed to a new deal. However, co-owner John Mara says the negotiations remain "slow and steady" and that he's still "confident" a long-term deal will get done.
"I'm pretty confident that we'll end up reaching a deal," Mara told NFL AM. "Victor is a star. … This is the right place [for him]."
"We expect big things," Mara said. " Now is the time."
Finally, Mara was asked about the strange selection of quarterback Ryan Nassib in the fourth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft. And like Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, said at the time, Nassib was at the top of their draft board and there was too much value to pass up.
'We were shocked he was still there [on day three]," Mara said, adding that it's time to "groom" someone behind Eli Manning.
News scraps? Yes. But anything is better than nothing.
