New York Giants Offseason: Victor Cruz Guarantees No Hold Out, According To Report

Here's a sigh of relief for New York Giants fans: star wide receiver Victor Cruz has reportedly guaranteed he will play the 2012 season at his currently scheduled salary and will not hold out:

It's great news for the defending Super Bowl champs, as the possibility of a Cruz holdout -- he's scheduled to make just $540,000 in 2012 -- seemed legit.

But now that such a scenario has been put to bed, or at least temporarily, it's likely the team will focus on either extending Cruz or preparing an offer for him at the conclusion of the 2012 season.

After going undrafted out of UMass in 2010, Cruz became a star for New York in 2011, finishing with 82 catches for 1,536 yards and 9 scores in 16 regular season games. He carried his strong play over into the playoffs, finishing with 269 postseason receiving yards during the Giants' march to a Super Bowl victory.
