New York's Eli Manning will consider reworking his contract to keep Victor Cruz with Giants

Quarterback Eli Manning says he'll consider reworking his contract if it would help keep leading receiver Victor Cruz on the New York Giants.

The two-time Super Bowl MVP indicated the Giants haven't asked him to redo his contract to open cap space. Manning, who spoke at a sponsor event in New York on Wednesday, says he'll consider anything that helps the team.

The Giants recently allowed Cruz to enter restricted free agency, placing a first-round tender on the player from Paterson, N.J. However, New York has the right to match any offer he receives.

If the Giants allow him to leave, they will get a first-round draft choice as compensation. The tender is worth $2.87 million for 2012.
