Nicks and Panthers agree to sign a three year extension with agent before we make trade. Giants lose Nicks after season anyway, season is over, we can get Nicks on a reasonable hometown discount before other teams bid on him driving his value up and we also get to use him the rest of this season, especially for the hard games. Nicks is back home and shows out. We don't have to worry about MISSING on WR in the 2nd or 3rd round and we have a 25yr old #1WR for a while if he stays healthy. Sounds like fair trade? Would you guys like it? Loathe losing the pick (lets say conditional 3rd rounder if he plays in the playoffs (or if we dont actually have a 4th round pick this year, too lazy to double check))
Play GM: A 4th Round pick in Week 5 or 6 for Hakeem Nicks? Would you guys take it?

Yes! He would instantly be an upgrade over anyone other than 89 as long as he is healthy.

And yes, sign him. It may take 3rd though.

Versus the 50 receivers who will be available after the season for no draft picks at all? What are my other choices? Gettleman has proven to be very good horse trader. With the cap being flat and so many guys coming up for free agency, I doubt we have to trade anything away to get a good receiver. So far a guy like Ginn looks like a keeper. There will be plenty more like him available. Why would we not go for a receiver or two in the draft on a 4 or 5 year rookie contract instead of the money Nicks will ask. If the Giants trade him it will be because they don't value him much. Why should we??

I'll be the first to say, I wouldn't do it. I really haven't been impressed with him. He had a few good games but the guy has some health issues. Also, I wouldn't trade for a guy who becomes a free agent at the end of the season. I would stay away from it.
