Kid Reporter: Victor Cruz Signs Big Contract



Victor Cruz is a wide reciever for the New York Giants and his new contract will pay him $45 million over six seasons. He is guaranteed to get at least $15.6 million of that contract regardless of what happens.



Cruz is from Patterson, NJ, not far from the Meadowlands. Just three years ago he was an undrafted free agent who was paid league minimum salary. He wasn't expected to play at the level he does today.



Victor played wide receiver in University of Massachusetts. He finished college with 149 catches, had over 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns. That put him fourth in their all-time record. His stats with the NY Giants are 1,092 yards with 10 touchdowns in 2012 and in 2012 Cruz set the Giants single season record with 1,536 yards and added 9 touchdowns.


Cruz is rooting for Nicks to get a big contract too. I think Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz will create a winning combination for the Giants. '


Play 60 camps teach you to be a good person off the field as well as on the field. Cruz showed his character when he honored a Sandy Hook victim, Jack Pinto who died. Jack was a Victor Cruz fan so Victor wrote on his shoes , "RIP Jack Pinto" and "Jack Pinto My Hero". He also went to talk to Jack's family and gave the cleats and gloves he wore in the game to Jack's brother, Ben.



He showed the character of caring for other people and not being selfish. Good job Victor Cruz.!

    They needed him. Without him, they are not a good playoff team. But they need to put up there RB cause the 2 star RB were Jacobs and BRadshaw and they both gone. They can surive without nicks.
