04:57 AM ET 06.15 | Victor Cruz made his way to the New York Giants facility on Friday afternoon to ink his one-year, $2.87 million restricted free agent tender. While he is now officially under contract and obligated to attend the team's training camp. There is still hopes of reaching an agreement that will get the wide receiver/salsa dancer a long-term deal before the start of the season. With no long term deal in place, it is still possible that Cruz could hold out of training camp. If he does decide to hold out, Cruz would be subject to $30,000 in fines per day. That may seem like a solid chunk of change, but Cruz risked losing over $2 million in guaranteed money if he didn't sign his restricted free agent tender today.

The Giants are NOT going to pay this guy that kind of money, they will pass to another receiver!!!

This article is a joke. He didn't risk anything. He signed the contract within the time period, so he gets the money. He hasn't held out from anything where he can be fined, so he hasn't lost any money.

If he really thinks he is going to get 9 million a year from the Giants, however, he's smoking crack.

DAaaaaaaaamn..... I think he's a fool for signing.

If he isn't worth $9, he is worth at least $7.5.

If he has a great year, that won't go up much, if he gets hurt it goes away completely.

Showing up for the $2.9 is stupid.

Reality is oft obscured to those who only see themselves.
