Victor Cruz joined forces with Jay-Z this week, but it doesn't appear that pairing up with Roc Nation is going to push Cruz and the New York Giants any closer to securing a contract extension for the long term. As the New York Daily News noted, Cruz has been looking to secure a new contract that would pay him $10-11 million per season, which is the kind of cheddar typically reserved for a No. 1 wideout. Meanwhile, the Giants' offer to Cruz was only worth about $7 million.
