Giants fined Hakeem Nicks 'multiple times' in 2013 -- report

There was a disconnect between Eli Manning and Hakeem Nicks this year. Now we know more about why. - Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants and free-agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not seem to be on the same page in 2013. News that Nicks was fined multiple times furthers that impression.

Don't expect to see Hakeem Nicks return to the New York Giants in 2014. It has been apparent for a while now that the free-agent wide receiver would leave New York, but a report today that Nicks was "fined multiple times" by the Giants during the 2013 season would seem to push the Giants and Nicks further toward parting ways.

Rapoport reported that the fines were for Nicks being late and missing scheduled treatments.

Nicks caught only 56 passes for 896 yards and no touchdowns in 2013, not nearly enough production from the player thought by many to be the Giants' No. 1 receiver.

During the season the question of whether Nicks was more committed to helping the Giants or to protecting his free-agent value was raised. In light of this news, draw your own conclusions.

What seems more obvious than ever, though, is that the Giants should plan to move forward without Nicks.
