12:21 PM ET 03.21 | Wide receiver Victor Cruz is tantalizing NFL teams as a restricted free agent this offseason. This means the New York Giants have some built-in safeguards against losing the dynamic playmaker, but it doesn't make quarterback Eli Manning any less concerned, or any less willing to help if need be. Manning would be more than happy to help release some of the financial pressure between the Giants and the salary cap by restructuring his own contract, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com reported Wednesday. Youngmisuk notes, though, that no conversations of the sort between the team and their signal-caller have taken place at this time. Here's part of Manning's pitch from the ESPN New York story: "That is kind of up to the Giants and what they want to do," Manning said. "I am always up for listening and doing whatever is best for the team to put us in a [situation] to win more championships."

Just make sure there is a condition in the contract that if they don't extend Cruz the extension doesn't happen. Don't want to have Cruz "Weilkered".

This new wink wink nod nod contract crap is laughable. At least they all play by the same screwed up rules.
