Nicks won't necessarily be active for Sunday's game at Washington, NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports. Though he didn't say that Nicks will be inactive, head coach Tom Coughlin did say that special teams will factor into the decision. Even if he ends up playing, Nicks will likely just be the fourth or fifth wide receiver.
Nicks is signing with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. With Victor Cruz (calf) ruled out for the season, the Giants will bring back their first-round selection from the 2009 NFL Draft. Nicks was a Pro Bowl-caliber wideout in 2010 and 2011, but he always had trouble staying healthy, which contributed to a far quicker decline than anyone could have expected. Although he's still just 27 years old, Nicks doesn't figure to be any higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart, as No. 3 wideout Dwayne Harris has come on strong the past few weeks.
The Patriots reportedly worked out wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Per the report, Nicks 'continues making the workout rounds,' so it doesn't appear as though as a signing is imminent here. As wideout injuries mount around the league, however, it wouldn't surprise us to see the 27-year-old Nicks (who played for the Colts in 2014) catch on with another NFL franchise sooner rather than later.
The Cowboys won't find another Dez Bryant out there, but they are at least trying to land the best temporary replacement for their injured star receiver. Among those working out on Tuesday is former Giants standout Hakeem Nicks. Austin Pettis, Nick Toon and Clyde Gates are also getting a look, per the Dallas Morning News. Bryant went down in Week 1 with a fractured right foot that was surgically repaired Monday. He is expected to remain out for at least six weeks. The 27-year-old Nicks is perhaps the most intriguing of the four. He was among the last cuts by Tennessee this year, but he is just two years removed from an 896-yard season with the Giants.
The Saints are working out free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks on Tuesday, a source told The New Orleans Advocate. Nicks was released by the Titans over the weekend.
