Justin Tuck thinks Victor Cruz "did the smart thing" by signing his restricted free-agent tender with the New York Giants, and of course he does. It's not Tuck's job to worry about the long-term financial implications of a potential Cruz holdout. Tuck's got one year left on his own deal and needs to help make this a big year for himself and for the team if he wants to stick around in New York. So of course he's happy Cruz signed the tender. Tuck's thinking about the 2013 Giants, who need Cruz. The 2014 Giants and beyond, well, they could well be someone else's problem...
