When Giants receiver Victor Cruz signs his new contract, which will happen later today or on Tuesday, he’ll immediately earn just under $10 million.
Not bad for a guy who was undrafted, and who spent most of his rookie season injured.
Nearly all of the guaranteed money, reported by Jay Glazer of FOX to be $15.6 million, will become fully guaranteed within roughly the next three weeks, per a source with knowledge of the terms of the deal.
The new money is $43 million over five years, for an average of $8.6 million annually. Factoring in the one-year, $2.879 million restricted free agency tender, Cruz will make $45.879 million over six years, with an average of $7.64 million over the six years.
