Peter Shaffer, the agent of New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks didn’t have much to say when he was asked about his client missing OTA’s.
“It’s a great day to be alive,” replied Shaffer, per Andrew Brandt of ESPN.
Shaffer knows the Giants are going to need Nicks to show up with Victor Cruz holding out. The only problem is that if Nicks skips mini-camp and training camp, he can be fined. So really at the end of the day, Shaffer doesn’t have much leverage as Nicks enters the final year of his contract.
