Diehl agrees to new deal with Giants; Cruz waits

The New York Giants put a little more money in the Victor Cruz

contract fund this week by cutting the salary of right tackle David

Diehl by nearly $3.5 million.

The paycut was revealed when a look at Diehl’s salary for this

season was listed at $1 million on the NFLPA website Wednesday. The

11-year veteran had been scheduled to make $4.37 million in the

final year of his contract.

Diehl started 11 games in 2012, missing five with a knee injury.

He moved from the left side after the team decided not to re-sign

veteran Kareem McKenzie.

Cruz, who has led the team in receiving the past two years,

remains a free agent.
