ESPN's Chris Mortensen thinks Giants, WR Victor Cruz will agree to contract soon

It's the unsubstantiated belief of one NFL insider, but at this point, I'll take any evidence that the Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz @TeamVic are closing in on a contract. ESPN's Chris Mortensen said during Tuesday's edition of "NFL32" that he would be "shocked" if the two sides didn't reach an agreement on a long-term deal before the start of next month's training camp. Mortensen then got specific, saying that he thinks that deal could come within "the next 10 days."

Fantasy Analysis:

I don't have a link to the sound bite, but believe me: That's what Mort said. As I've said before, I won't downgrade Cruz until we are well into August, he is still without a contract and is holding out of camp. But reaching a resolution sooner rather than later sure would be nice, if I may cast an understatement. A difference in guaranteed money is reportedly creating the distance between the two sides. As of now, Cruz is a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2.
