Report: Holdout not in Victor Cruz's vocabulary

The Sports Xchange

Even though New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz may be one of the most underpaid players in the NFL at the moment, don't expect him to be a camp holdout.

"That's not even in my vocabulary," Cruz told the New York Post Tuesday. "I don't even know what that means."

It would mean Cruz would stay out of camp while seeking a contract extension he likes, an approach Cruz apparently is unlikely to take.

Cruz was third in the NFL in receiving last season, with 82 catches for 1,536 yards. However, he is scheduled to make just $540,000 in 2012, the final year of his contract before he becomes a restricted free agent.

Cruz might note that Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson recently signed an eight-year, $150.5 million deal.
