According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks have talked about a long-term extension, but they’re not close at all to getting something done.
Nicks and the Giants have discussed a long-term contract extension, but a source said they have never been anywhere close to an agreement. A big reason why is that Nicks has the talent to be considered a true No. 1 receiver, but in the past few years he’s had significant injuries that make him a long-term risk.
It sounds like to me the Giants are ready to let Nicks play out the final year of his current deal to see how he holds up before they break the bank to try and re-sign him.
