Nicks surprised Coughlin Wednesday when he failed to show up for the team’s first voluntary workout. The coach was given no explanation.
“His heart is with … talking to him, he would love to be with the Giants,” Hugh Freeney, Dwight’s father, told Sirius radio’s Adam Schein. “But the Giants unfortunately … doesn’t have the money for it. They’re broke.”
Negotiations “are on the 2-yard line” and now the sides just “need to give a little bit,” according to the New York Post.
“I just want to get through one day without somebody asking me about the Victor Cruz negotiation,” Giants co-owner John Mara told Mike Francesa on Thursday afternoon.
If Cruz doesn’t have a deal in time for an on-time arrival for training camp, he’ll be doing himself and the Giants a disservice.
New York Giants owner John Mara says progress is slow but steady in the contract negotiations between the team and Pro Bowl wide receiver Victor Cruz.
The Giants own one pick in each of the seven rounds, plus a compensatory pick near the bottom of the seventh. Here’s a look at the Giants’ positional needs going into the NFL Draft.
“It will get done at some point,” Giants co-owner John Mara told reporters on Monday in regard to a long-term extension for the New Jersey native. “Just be patient.”

Roughly 25 Giants headed to Newtown, Conn., on Thursday afternoon to hold football clinics for youngsters from the community.
Cruz remained absent from the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning program on Thursday. Reese had no idea if he’d see the Pro Bowl standout during the program, training camp or even into the season.
Voluntary workouts began on Monday morning, and players had to arrive at the Giants’ facility by 11:30 a.m. for their participation to count for the day. Victor Cruz was a no-show.
Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o visited with the Giants on Thursday night and Friday morning, according to multiple reports. Te’o, of course, was the victim of a “catfishing” hoax that took the sports world by storm in January.
The Peyton-Welker connection has garnered most of the headlines out of Duke. But here in New York, it’s all about Big Blue.
