07:08 AM ET 07.17 | In the end, even if the numbers don't exactly add up, Victor Cruz is where he wants to be. Cruz's average salary in 2013 won't even put him in the top 10 average salaries of receivers, a list that includes the likes of DeSean Jackson and Devin Hester, both statistically less productive. "I'm not going to lie, it's tough," Cruz said on The Opening Drive. "When you understand from a numbers standpoint, and the numbers you put up you feel like you deserve a certain amount of money." ... Although he has no regrets about signing his new deal with Big Blue, Cruz admits it's "not easy' to look across the league and see guys with arguably less talent making more money. "I'm not going to say it's easy."

It's time for this guy to SHUT UP.

shut up and play!

Hey, there are people here at work with arguably less talent making more than me. **** up, Victor. The NFL may be Fantasyland, but there are elements of reality that still creep in.

Or just shut up. Your call.

They listed Devin Hester among WR's ?

July 17, 2013  07:45 AM ET

I agree... It's not easy.

What's a guy to do?

Cruz isn't "that guy". This is just the media.

Aren't we all worth more?????

July 17, 2013  08:02 AM ET

I guess that Mike Wallace contract bothers him....

July 17, 2013  08:13 AM ET

Happens every day Victor. Grow up.

July 17, 2013  08:14 AM ET

I believe Penelope Cruz is worth more.

July 17, 2013  08:18 AM ET

If you thought you were worth more, why did you sign the extension?

Do you want the most $ or play on a team which can win SBs?

Hester's cap number is 1.857 million, looked it up because I couldn't believe they wouldn't have cut him since his WR days are done. Whoever wrote this article is an obviously a dope.

Based on your late season play Vic, you are worth a lot less. If you were worth what you got or more, don't ya think a few teams would have given up a late first rounder at least to sign you all those months they could have?

July 17, 2013  08:41 AM ET

He's making himself a marked man.

July 17, 2013  08:42 AM ET

Can't wait to see what he does this year.. Expectations are through the roof.
