Five Teams That Should Trade for Hakeem Nicks
If someone were to say that one of the New York football teams would be looking to sell off some of their players, I would probably have guessed it to be the Jets or the Bills. Not that either team has a great deal of talent, but it wouldn’t have been a shock if either one was 0-6 at this point.
Instead, it is the Giants who find themselves win-less more than a third of the way through the season and they are the ones looking to shake up their roster to prepare for the future. The biggest name supposedly on the trade market is wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who will be a free agent at the end of the year and will be looking to cash in on a Victor Cruz-like contract.
Whether fans agree with the move or not, it may be in the team’s best interest to shop the talented receiver. It will be tough to have two big contracts tied in to one position and if they can get a draft pick or two in the draft, they can address some of their other needs. The only downside of the move is that the Giants would be selling low. Nicks has battled injuries his entire career, and his numbers are hardly spectacular this year (he was held catch-less in week three against the Panthers and has yet to find the end zone yet). If they do decide to trade Nicks, they cannot settle for something below his value.
That being said, what teams would benefit from a trade for Nicks the most? Here are five teams that would greatly benefit with his addition.
