Contract talks with Victor Cruz have "hit a snag" - [Full Article]

Rather, Friday saw the news that the contract negotiations "hit a snag," as Cruz is looking for something in the $8 million per year range. Unfortunately for Cruz, slot receivers aren't typically paid as much as outside receivers, and it seems unlikely he'll get the number he's after.

Fantasy Impact: 

Slot receivers are not getting the type of money as outside receivers, as evidenced by the difference in the contracts of Wes Welker and Greg Jennings, so Cruz is having a hard time getting the contract he's looking for.
