Manning Says He’d Redo Contract To Keep Cruz

By TOM CANAVAN,  AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) _ Quarterback Eli Manning says he’ll consider reworking his contract if it would help keep leading receiver Victor Cruz on the New York Giants.

The two-time Super Bowl MVP indicated the Giants haven’t asked him to redo his contract to open cap space. Manning, who spoke at a sponsor event in New York on Wednesday, says he’ll consider anything that helps the team.

The Giants recently allowed Cruz to enter restricted free agency, placing a first-round tender on the player from Paterson, N.J. However, New York has the right to match any offer he receives.

If the Giants allow him to leave, they will get a first-round draft choice as compensation.  The tender is worth $2.87 million for 2012.
