According to ESPN.com’s Dan Graziano, Adam Schefter reported that the New York Giants are turning down anyone interested in trading for wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.
In other Giants news, Adam Schefter reported on ESPN on Sunday morning that the team is “resisting all overtures” for wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in advance of Tuesday’s trade deadline. That’s not to say there’s no chance Nicks gets dealt, but as we have discussed here, his value isn’t very high right now and the Giants haven’t yet given up on their season or the idea of keeping Nicks beyond this season. Perhaps that changes if they lose Sunday, but either way, it’s obviously unlikely they trade Nicks by Tuesday.
The fact of the matter is that the Giants still believe they can make the playoffs and they’re going to need Nicks to do so.
