“I do see myself as a Randall Cobb,” Cruz told the paper. “Hopefully I can sneak in that backfield for a couple plays. I don’t know how effective that will be. But we’ll definitely see where it takes us. ... I’m excited to be all over the field this year.”
Cruz has one career carry for three yards.
Speaking at a fundraiser, Cruz told the Newark Star-Ledger that Nicks could be too expensive for the Giants to retain but if the stars aligned, he'd love to have him back. In fact, he's told Nicks exactly that.
"I have (asked him to stay)," Cruz said. "Selfishly, I would love for him to stay."
The paper made a note that Cruz was double-teamed more often this year because of Nicks' ineffective play. Nicks had a hard time separating from defensive backs and couldn't win jump balls. Nicks also had a hard time around the end zone as he went without scoring a touchdown all season.
“I’m for all [going] up-tempo, getting a lot of catches, making a lot of plays,” Cruz told the New York Post. “That’s what I want to do — that’s kind of right up my alley. I’m excited to hear that, and I’m excited to get in there and learn the offense and get it going.”
McAdoo is expected to run a West Coast offense with zone-read principles. It means fewer deep passes and a more controlled, methodical approach but it also means letting your key receivers make plays after the quarterback goes through his reads quickly. That should pop open the door for
It's something to watch this offseason as pretty much every Giants player will wind up being a sleeper in drafts this summer.
