Jay-Z expected to keep Cruz with the Giants

No you did not read that headline wrong. Jay-Z’s new sports agency, Roc Nation, has taken over the marketing and business opportunities for New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. With the new teaming up of Cruz and Roc Nation, it appears Cruz wants to stay in New York long-term. Cruz told his agents “not to sign him with another team because he wants to work with Jay-Z.” Apparently there were a number of teams interested in Cruz, however, Cruz isn’t even entertaining offers from other teams because he has no interest in playing anywhere else. Cruz is reportedly seeking $11 million annually, while the Giants are only offering $7 million annually at the moment.
