Pending physicals, it’s official, New York Giants wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks is being traded to the Detroit Lions according to multiple sources close with both the Lions and Giants.
This trade doesn’t come as surprise as Nick’s hasn’t been on the best of terms with head coach, Tom Coughlin and the Giants organization as after the Giants 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers Nicks had this to say about his catch-less performance.
“I can’t throw it to myself,” he said.
Coughlin responded by saying, “That’s not a smart thing to say,” Coughlin said during a press conference on Monday. “He’s on the field. The quarterback was sacked seven times and hit probably, what, 15 times? Not a very smart thing to say. I’ll talk to him about it, sure.”
Through three games Nicks has 197 yards receiving on nine catches.
As for the rest of the deal, according to a third source, Nicks will be traded to the Lions for running back, Mikel Leshoure and a conditional third round draft pick. However our other two sources have yet to confirm that so we are still treating that as a rumor. The only thing we no for sure is that Nicks is headed to Detroit.
