NEW YORK - (AP) - Wide receiver Victor Cruz has signed his $2.879 million tender with the New York Giants.

Two people familiar with the contract told The Associated Press on Friday that the restricted free agent with three years in the NFL had signed the tender while he works on a long-term deal with the Giants.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the signing has not been announced publicly.

Had the 26-year-old Cruz not signed before Monday, the Giants' offer could have been reduced to $630,000 for the 2013 season. The Giants could have matched any offers Cruz received from other teams.

Cruz is coming off a Pro Bowl season in which he made 86 catches for 1,092 yards and scored 10 touchdowns as one of the league's best slot receivers.
