"Two years ago he was probably one of the best receivers in the NFL," Coughlin said. "He's had some nicks, he's had some things he had to deal with, the production was not where it should have been last year. We wish Hakeem success, nothing but the best for him. Perhaps this is what he needed, the change he needed. If he re-establishes himself in Indianapolis they'll have one hell of a football team."
Nicks signed a one-year deal with the Colts. He had just 56 catches for 896 yards and no touchdowns in 2013.
It sure wasn't
"What is there not to like about the guy?" Pagano said from the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando. "He's a big guy, very, very athletic, experienced guy, played at a high level, won championships. ... Everybody's going to get up in your face now and play bump and run and make it really hard for you to get off the line of scrimmage. He gives you a big, physical presence. When Reggie went down, Da'Rick Rogers was a big guy but he hadn't played and was thrust to the forefront. With Hakeem you get another big, physical receiver that will do a great job versus press coverage and the teams that we're going to have to face, all of them are built to stop the big wideouts. We're going to face big corners, if you will. He brings a lot to the table in that respect."
"That's exciting," Nicks told the Herald Bulletin. "It looks like a three-headed monster to me. Last time I was in that situation, I won a Super Bowl. So I'm excited about that."
Nicks called the Colts the best fit for him. He'll try to prove himself on a one-year deal.
"The football coaches, I've heard a lot of great things about them," he said. "Andrew Luck is one of the best young quarterbacks in the game today, and I would love to play with him."
