Trade Deadline Watch: Hakeem Nicks
After a week of criticism and doubt surrounding Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, the five-year NFL veteran had the second most catches on the season against the Eagles on Sunday.
Nicks tallied for 7 and 51 yards, including a 22-yard reception four minutes in, which was quarterback Eli Manning showing that his trust in the former first round pick had not faltered.
The NFL trade deadline is on Tuesday and Nicks has been one of the hottest names on the block with his Giants contract expiring at the end of the season.
As of Monday morning, everything is pointing in the direction of Nicks sticking with the Giants. While there are reports that New York has received offers, it’s likely that there isn’t much that teams are putting on the table right now for a receiver who’s stock is down.
Nicksis on pace to have over 1,000 yards this season but has yet to get into the end zone for Manning and the Giants. Nicks last touchdown reception was on December 9th, 2012 against the Saints.
