Thought same thing RT @TomRock_Newsday: First time all season I walked away from Hakeem Nicks' locker thinking he could be back next year— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) December 27, 2013
Here are a few more tweets from reporters' conversations on Friday with Nicks, who most have assumed will leave the Giants after the season:
Hakeem Nicks didn't sound like he'd be too upset if the Giants tagged him. 2013 tag for WRs was $10,537,000.— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) December 27, 2013
Nicks said once season's over - i.e., this week - he expects his reps + #NYG front office would exchange initial ideas as far as his future— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) December 27, 2013
Hakeem Nicks said he wants to stay with the Giants, promises $ is not his only factor in FA + emphasizes "stability" of the franchise #NYG— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) December 27, 2013
When asked about "organizational stability" Nicks said he wants to talk coaches, players. Says he loves Gilbride. #nyg— Conor Orr (@ConorTOrr) December 27, 2013
Nicks says he wants to stay w giants and expects to have talks w front office next wk .— GiantsWFAN (@giantswfan) December 27, 2013
Interesting. Nicks has seemed like a player with a foot out the door most of the season. Perhaps he is just covering his tracks, but perhaps not. We will see where it all goes.
