He's a #1, let's not miscontrue that fact. He proved it in NY, and had two bad years because of injuries. Also, Eli was his quarterback, and you, as well as I, know that he has a penchant for throwing to the other team.
Let's not underrate this guy, he was crucial to the Giants' super bowl run a few years back. He did it on the big stage, and he has proven his worth.
Nicks wants a 1-yr deal, and he'll be looking to get paid next off-season. He's hungry to show that he's still an elite receiver. What's a better way to do that than aligning yourself with a solid team, with an elite quarterback. (Yes, I just called Cam elite)
You might be right. I don't see him as a#1. Then again, I'm an awful evaluator of talent. I'll be the first to admit being wrong if he comes here and blows it up. I hated picking Cam and Luke and loved picking AE.... So there's that.
the rationale is pretty clear to me. We need a wr BADLY. He's a damn good 1 when healthy & he jus so happens to be an FA that has expressed interest in playing here. Signing him would be filling in one of those wholes u speak of while we could take care of the rest in May. But wether he's willing to come play here for little to nothing will remain to be seen. If not we'll jus have to explore other options
That's fair. To be perfectly honest, I trust Gettleman's assessment here. He's spent a lot of time with Nicks and knows him better than most. I stand by my statement that Smitty, Nicks, Benjamin would be a good (and potentially very inexpensive) line up. My anti-Nicks posts weren't saying we shouldn't look at him, but I doubt we do. I just feel that NY is over him and based on Gettleman's history, he would likely not be interested.
well news came out yesterday that he was willing to take a 1 yr prove it deal w/ a team tht has a proven QB. I feel like he's going out of his was to get Gettleman's attention, tbh. But my concern is exactly what u just said he may not even be willing to take a chance on him, which is stupid IMO. No way he comes home & doesn't ball out!
I didn't see that. If that's the case, I say let's do it. I see Nicks mentioned in every thread on here, but I haven't seen any rationale for signing him beyond "hometown." I just feel like people are blinded by that. Our strategy is clearly to build our core through the draft and fill in holes with the clearance rack. Unless Nicks is willing to play cheap, I don't see how he fits. He'd be a better #2 than we've had since Moose, but he's not a #1
