During an appearance during today’s NFL AM show on the NFL Network, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was asked if he skipped OTA’s because of his contract situation.
“I really don’t talk about my contract in the media and stuff like that. Contract wasn’t related,” replied Nicks.
I believe Nicks skipped OTA’s to avoid any possibility of suffering an injury. He was forced to show up to minicamp since he would be fined if he didn’t. He doesn’t have a choice, he has to play out the final year of his contract.
