06:57 AM ET 07.19 | The New York Giants retained more of their own talent in locking up Victor Cruz, one of the nicest stories in the NFL. [It's a nice deal for a slot receiver,] but it doesn't come close to the kind of money elite outside receivers are generating these days. Which means it doesn't come close to what top wideout Hakeem Nicks is going to command should he manage to stay healthy this season. ... [Greg Jennings] actually makes for a strong comparison for Nicks ... only that Nicks, 25, is just entering his prime and Jennings turns 30 in September. Even at that age, Jennings got the second-best deal of any free agent receiver this offseason, landing five years, $45 million with $18M fully guaranteed. Nicks would shatter those numbers.

Too many divas make for a dysfunctional opera company.

If he stays healthy for a year he will get his. The good ones always do. And he is a good one.

By all rights, this should be his breakout year, but it still remains to be seen if he can live up to his potential. There is only one ball on the field, and say what you want to about Cruz but Eli tends to look for him first.

Oh, they will, even if they have to tag the guy, and they do not usually do that. He is the reason the would not go more to Cruz than they laid out there months ago.

And then there is JPP to deal with.

if Reuben Randle has a breakout year, bye bye Nicks.

H. Nicks is too injury prone to give a lot of money to.

I like how the Giants didn't blink in their staring contest with Cruz.
