It ends a lengthy spell of negotiation between the team and Cruz stretching back to early last season with the restricted free agent now remaining in the Big Apple.

He told "I'm done with the back and forth. What's on the table is a really good deal. My family is set financially for the rest of my life. That's all I could ask for."

Cruz burst onto the scene in 2011 on the way to a Super Bowl ring with 82 catches for 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns and followed that up last season with 86 catches for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdown receptions.
