The battle between the New York Giants and wide receiver Victor Cruz may get a little more intense if the news being reported is accurate.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that according to his sources, wide receiver Hakeen Nicks and his new deal is the Giants top priority, and not Victor Cruz.
The 25-year-old Nicks has one year remaining on his contract, and the team feels he is a legitimate #1 and would like to get him signed long-term.
Nicks who missed 3 games, finished with 53 receptions, 692 yards and three touchdowns.
I’m not sure if this a ploy to get Cruz to come down off his terms or not, but Nicks is able to get busy because of the chaos Cruz causes in the slot.
The two receivers complement one another and I wonder what kind of numbers they’ll have without each other.
