New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch predicted a week ago that restricted free agent Victor Cruz would wind up with a "higher" annual salary than the roughly $6 million recently given to top slot receivers Wes Welker and Danny Amendola.

Tisch wasn't exactly going out on a limb. Cruz has a youth and versatility edge on Welker and has been significantly more productive than Amendola.

As it turns out, it appears Tisch also had inside information that Cruz has already been offered more than Welker and Amendola. The Giants have extended an offer that exceeds $7 million per year while adding a "sizable amount" of guaranteed money, Gary Myers of the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

The offer would seem to be in the three- or four-year range, as Myers adds that it would still leave the 26-year-old Cruz another chance to land a big contract later in his career.
