NEWARK, N.J. —

New York Giants owner John Mara says progress is slow but steady in the contract negotiations between the team and Pro Bowl wide receiver Victor Cruz.

Mara also says he's confident a deal will be reached. Mara made his comments Tuesday on NFL.com.

Cruz caught 86 passes for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, tops on the team.

The Giants allowed Cruz to test the free agent market by making him a first-round tender, but no other team offered him a deal. He can play for roughly $2.9 million, but wants a long-term deal. He has been absent from the team's voluntary offseason program.

Mara says the Giants "are the right place" for Cruz to play and a deal "will eventually" get done.
