Without much of a surprise, the Hakeem Nicks to the Lions trade rumors are completely bogus, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
While it would make sense for the Giants to trade Nicks to the Lions for a running back like Mikel Leshoure and a draft pick, it’s not happening.
First of all, the original report came from a small website that is run by a college kid in the Syracuse area that claims that three sources told him of the news.
That right there is a red flag. I don’t think many people believed the story anyway, but a rumor is a rumor and this was a big one.
