New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is looking forward to continuing to work with wide receiver Victor Cruz.

Eli Manning has said that he is looking forward to continuing to work with Victor Cruz at the New York Giants.

The wide receiver signed a five-year contract extension earlier this week, following months of negotiations.

The Giants' starting quarterback said in an email to the New York Post: "It's going to be nice to not have to answer any more questions about Victor and his contract status with the team.

"It's great to get Victor signed long-term and before the start of training camp. Obviously, he has been a big part of our offense.

"He has worked really hard on the field to become the player he is and I look forward to continuing our work together."

Cruz was on the receiving end of 10 of Manning's 26 touchdowns passes in 2012.
