Victor Cruz Thinks He Took Less Than He Deserves

The New York Giants and receiver Victor Cruz have agreed to a contract that will pay him $45 million over the next six years. That’s good money, but it’s not the kind of money Cruz was hoping to earn.

Cruz said on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he believes he should have made more.

“I’m not going to lie, it’s tough. It’s tough. When you understand from a numbers standpoint, and the numbers you put up you feel like deserve a certain amount of money,” Cruz said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Cruz said he’s happy to be playing in New York, but he also believes there are NFL wide receivers who aren’t as good as him who are making more money than him.
