Giants’ WR Hakeem Nicks has new representation as he readies for free agency next month and Giant fans who were hoping he would return to the Blue are losing hope.
According to Jordan Raanan of the Star-Ledger, Nicks’ chances of wearing Giant Blue in 2014 in 2014 are “close to zero”…
Nicks, 26, is coming off perhaps the worst season of his career. He didn’t record a touchdown catch and didn’t play in the Giants’ biggest game of the season against the Dallas Cowboys.
Put it all together and the chances of Nicks returning to the Giants next season are “close to zero,” according to a person with knowledge of the situation. That would leave the Giants with Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan as the only proven wide receivers currently on the roster for next season.
