(New Rochelle, N.Y.) — Fresh off helping the New York Giants win Super Bowl XLVI, wide receiver Victor Cruz, who just completed his first NFL season, is already thinking about the future.
Cruz burst onto the scene this season, catching 82 passes for 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns. Despite his production this season, Cruz is set to earn only $490,000 this upcoming season and he wants a raise.
“Honestly, with what I did this year, statistically and the records and everything like that, obviously I feel like just looking at the top players in the league and looking at what I did this year, I feel like naturally there should be an increase in pay,” Cruz said.
Cruz’ 1,536 receiving yards were third in the NFL this past season.
