New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is the player most likely to be traded before Tuesday's NFL Trade Deadline, according a survey of NFL executives conducted by the National Football Post.
"If you look at the whole situation, it makes sense," an NFC general manager said. "(Giants General Manager) Jerry (Reese) is really good at finding receivers, they’ve already paid (fellow wide receiver Victor) Cruz, they have (second-year receiver Rueben) Randle and they have other players to worry about signing. It’s not really their style to trade during the season, but 1-6 is 1-6."
The NFP lists the Indianapolis colts, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs as likely suitors.
Interestingly, Giants' guard David Diehl is No. 8 on NFP's list of the 10 players most likely to be dealt. Here is what NFP's Jason Cole wrote:
"The injury to center David Baas likely makes it harder for the Giants to trade an offensive lineman of any ability. Beyond that, Diehl is 33 and fading. However, getting any offensive lineman at this point is almost impossible, especially one who has high-level experience at left tackle. Diehl is on an expiring contract, so there’s a chance he could move."
