EAST RUTHERFORD - (AP) - New York Giants star receiver Victor Cruz has signed a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2018 season.

The deal with worth $43 million according to media reports.

Cruz was a restricted free agent with three years in the NFL. Last month, he signed a one-year, $2.879 million tender with the Giants, but a long-term deal was already in the works. The Giants could have matched any offers Cruz received from other teams - so he didn't get any.

Cruz skipped all of New York's offseason program.

The 26-year-old, from Paterson, was an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts, but he's become one of the most productive receivers in the NFL. Over the last two seasons, he has 168 receptions for 1,628 yards and 19 touchdowns.
