Eisen's Mailbag: Free agent update

The Giants seem to be signing a lot of free agents, but what about their own? Any word on Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Lawrence Tynes?

Cruz has received a one-year tender offer and the team has made a long-term offer that John Mara has said would make Cruz a wealthy young man. As a restricted free agent, Cruz can receive an offer from other teams until April 19. If he gets one, the Giants can choose to match it or, if they opt not to, receive that team's first-round draft choice. Nicks is under contract for the 2013 season and will not be a free agent until next year. At some point the Giants will likely sign him to a long-term contract. Tynes will not return; the Giants signed Josh Brown to replace him.
