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.

John Lynch discusses decision to place Ronald Blair on PUP, 49ers' depth on the edges

The San Francisco 49ers had hoped to have Ronald Blair ready for Week 1. That didn't end up being the case, and the defensive end landed on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. That will shut him down for the first six weeks of the season. Blair won't be able to play or practice with the team during that time. With Jullian Taylor also on the PUP list, it creates some depth issues at defensive end. General manager John Lynch on Sunday was asked about the decision to give Blair more time to recover and any concerns he might have about the depth along the edges. "Ronnie, first and foremost, and I told Ronnie this when I told him of our decision

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed Deebo Samuel on injured reserve. The move will force the second-year wide receiver to miss at least three games under the NFL's new injured-reserve rules, meaning the earliest he would be available is for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped that the receiver would be available for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the 49ers never cleared Samuel to practice this week. Shanahan was asked on Friday why San Francisco had not yet placed Samuel on injured reserve. "Because we believed he had a good chance to play this week," Shanahan
