NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Welcome back, Victor Cruz.
The Giants wide receiver has signed his free-agent tender of $2.87 million, according to multiple reports.
On Friday, fullback Henry Hynoski tweeted that Cruz was “back walkin these halls” at the team’s facility in East Rutherford, N.J.
“I’m going to sign my tender today and will continue talks for a long-term deal before camp starts,” Cruz told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
If the Paterson native left his tender unsigned by next Monday, it would have been reduced to $660,000.
“Victor’s an outstanding player and an outstanding guy,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said Friday on WFAN radio’s “Benigno & Roberts” show. “It’s only going to make us better, so we’re definitely happy about that.”
The 26-year-old skipped OTAs and minicamp, but after signing the tender he’s now contractually obligated to attend training camp.
Will he show up? That’s up for debate, though the majority of Giants scribes expect him to be there.
Cruz will indeed report to camp this summer, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Meanwhile, ProFootballTalk.com reported that a holdout “is still possible.”
