Giants place 1st-round tender on Victor Cruz

Mar 11, 2013 at 12:04 PM--


Free agency signings begin tomorrow at 1 PM Pacific. According to ESPN's Andrew Brandt, the New York Giants have placed a 1st round tender on restricted free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz, worth approximately $2.9 million.

The San Francisco 49ers own a very low first round selection with the 31st overall pick and the wide receiver position is something that the 49ers are looking to improve via free agency or the NFL Draft. The addition of Cruz would certainly do that. Although, it is unknown if the 49ers would be willing to surrender a first round selection for the dynamic receiver.

Over the past two seasons, Cruz has had 168 catches for 2,628 yards and 19 touchdowns. Signed as an undrafted free agent by the Giants in 2010, he is only 26 years old.

On Monday, the Seahawks agreed on a trade that would send wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings to Seattle.

When Talanoa Hufanga spoke with reporters last week, shortly after being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, he came off as incredibly likable. The former USC safety was so grateful to be headed to the NFL. "This is such a blessing," he said. "Truly, I thank God for this opportunity." Hufanga's family comes from humble beginnings, so making it to the NFL means a lot. "It's just a blessing. My family has been through a lot," he continued. "My dad grew up on an island where he grew up with dirt floors. When you make that transition, and I got to see where he grew up and see what it was like, you're grateful for these opportunities and how we can live our life. How I can better our lifestyle as well. That's what drives me." Scot McCloughan
