WR shake-ups

The next NFL season is already starting as we have some big play WRs making moves. The Ravens have sent Anquon Boldin to their Super Bowl challenger the Niners and the Seahawks traded for Percy Harvin. The NFC West could be wild again.
Also, the Giants have made Victor Cruz a RFA and placed a first round tender on him. Any team that offers Cruz a contract will have to allow the Giants to match and if they can't and lose Cruz the other team had to give up their first round pick. Top receivers are making about 10 million a year...would you give up that much and a first round pick for Cruz? The Packers and Steelers each have a WR out on the market could Cruz end up in one of those towns? Probably not...Cruz recently fired his agent and hired Eli Mannings agent. The Giants and Cruz wish to do business with each other but Cruz's agent wanted to test the waters and see what other teams would offer, the Giants best option was to take the risk.
I know it seems that Eli makes the receiver, not the other way around but they haven't had a big play guy like Cruz before and they need his speed out there.

  1. I think the Packers would go for it (Cruz). The only reason they don't give that much to Jennings is age and he's starting to be injured every year. Cruz is neither of those and, arguably at least, even better.
