Nicks was drafted by the Giants in 2009 as a first round draft pick, he went to North Carolina and was dominant receiver for them. After his rookie year, Nicks enjoyed back to back 1,000 yard receiving seasons and looked like he was on his way to becoming a dynamic receiver in this league. The Giants paired him with Victor Cruz they felt like they had a winning formula for Eli Manning. Nicks is something that the Giants need in a receiver because he is a big target for the end zone and has reliable hands. This season has been injured and I think the Giants seen that in a big way affecting their record.
With Nicks being hampered by injuries this season it comes at a horrible time. After this season, he will be a free agent and there are plenty of teams that need his services. (Seen above) The Giants have since 2011 his production has dropped. Has it been because of Nicks play or because of the offensive line struggles? When it comes down to it Nicks is 25 years old and has a lot of football left to play. The Giants have to make a decision, is Hakeem Nicks a problem for the Giants or the Giants a problem for Hakeem Nicks?
