In the midst of trade rumors and a winless season, Hakeem Nicks is letting everyone know that he is here to stay.
From ESPN New York:
"I'm a Giant, and that's the only thing I can focus on right now," Nicks said after practice Monday morning. "I'm a Giant, and I love playing for the Giants. I'm a Giant right now, and I'm going to stand strong on that."
Nicks is in the final year of his contract. The team signed wide receiver Victor Cruz to a long-term deal in the offseason and has made second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle a significant part of the passing game, even as he continues to develop. Randle has been targeted 43 times to Nicks' 46 and Cruz's 60.
Hakeem Nicks' loyalty is well appreciated but at the same time, this is a business and the Giants are 0-6. We may not know what the management is thinking at this point but it’s likely that he could be moved if the management is looking towards building for the future.
