Titans WR Hakeem Nicks was forced from the team's third preseason game with a leg injury.
Nicks got his left leg caught underneath him while being tackled from behind late in the second quarter. He struggled to put weight on the leg as he hopped off the field. Nicks had two catches for 19 yards before being forced from the game. Aug 28 - 9:56 PM

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports Hakeem Nicks has been "making plays on a regular basis" during training camp.

Wyatt admitted Nicks was "overweight and just didn't impress that much" at OTAs and minicamp. He's come back in shape and is getting plenty of work with the first-team offense, though snaps have been divided between all of the Titans' receivers. Nicks may be fifth on the depth chart and competing with rookie Tre McBride for one roster spot. He'll need a strong preseason.

Hakeem Nicks blamed the Colts' offensive scheme for his lack of production last season.

We saw a dead-legged player struggle to get separation, just like he did during his final two years with the Giants. Nicks, of course, thinks otherwise and vows to rebound in Tennessee under Ken Whisenhunt. "It's more one-on-one, trips backside, vertical throw, shallow-cross game, that's more of my style if you look at my past history, where I excelled," Nicks said. He'll try to hold off Dorial Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter as long as he can.

Hakeem Nicks opened Titans training camp getting the "bulk" of the first-team wideout snaps across from Kendall Wright.

This shouldn't last long with rookie Dorial Green-Beckham waiting in the wings, and Harry Douglas and Justin Hunter also in the mix for snaps. Nicks is still only 27 years old, but he's looked all out of juice in recent seasons. Nicks managed a 38-405-4 receiving line on 68 targets with Andrew Luck's Colts last year.

Hakeem Nicks believes he can still be one of the best receivers in the NFL.

"I feel like where I am at in my career — I just turned 27 — I feel like I still have a lot in my tank," Nicks said. "I wanted to go somewhere and prove I can still be a No. 1 receiver and be the guy I was in the past, statistically and being a guy that likes to make plays and be on the field consistently." We feel for Nicks — he was legitimately great in 2010-11 — but lower-body injuries have robbed him of his explosion. Tennessee, with a rookie quarterback and crowded receiver corps, is an unlikely place to get his career back on track.

Hakeem Nicks' one-year Titans deal includes just $100,000 guaranteed.

It's very close to a minimum contract. Nicks can max out at $1.4 million if he earns all the bonuses included and make the Titans' Week 1 roster. If Nicks can't turn his career around in Nashville -- and we tend to doubt he will -- there's a decent chance he'll be out of the league sooner rather than later.

Titans signed WR Hakeem Nicks, formerly of the Colts.

The NFL's version of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Titans love old, run-down, has-beens. Add Nicks to a pile that already included Harry Douglas, Anthony Fasano, Kam Wimbley, and Shonn Greene. Nicks tried to rehab his value in Indianapolis with the game's best young passer last season and still did little, struggling to a 38-405-4 line before seeing his snaps cut in favor of Donte Moncrief. Nicks is just 27, but plays like he's 37. Even for disappointing Justin Hunter, Nicks is unlikely to provide serious competition.

Free agent Hakeem Nicks is visiting the Titans.

The report is via the Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt. As is usually the case with the Titans, we don't get it. GM Ruston Webster has already taken a flier on fading veteran Harry Douglas. He doesn't need to add another one to the mix. Things have gotten so bad with Nicks that he recently had to publicly posit that he's not "finished." Webster is ranked dead last in our annual general manager rankings, which can be accessed at the link below.

Free agent Hakeem Nicks insists he's not "finished."

"I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody," Nicks said. "That's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it. I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it." Greeted by a nonexistent market, Nicks is a player who senses his career slipping away. Nicks is still only 27, but lower-body injuries have robbed him of the explosion that made him special.

Free agent WR Hakeem Nicks is visiting the 49ers.

It took nearly three weeks, but Nicks is finally getting a sniff on the free agent market. The 49ers, in search of inexpensive depth behind starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, will likely be disappointed in what they find. Lower-leg injuries have completely zapped Nicks' once-promising career, as his last three seasons have been nothing short of poor. No other team has even poked around at Nicks in the wake of his 38-405-4 "prove it" 2014 season with the Colts.

Profootballtalk reports there's "little or no market" for free agent Hakeem Nicks.

This is our first Nicks blurb since the Colts lost the AFC Championship Game. He's yet to even be loosely connected anywhere by reporters connecting the dots. Nicks appeared headed for a long and productive career as recently as 2011, but his explosion has essentially disappeared. Nicks is only 27, but he could be near the end.
Mar 17 - 11:08 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells suggests free agent Hakeem Nicks could re-sign as a No. 3 wideout behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

After a second consecutive year of bad tape, Nicks is going to find a cold market. We'll see if he's willing to settle for a bargain-basement contract to be a third receiver on a team that wants to play two tight ends (Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener) most of the time. The Colts paid Nicks $3.975M last season to go 38-405-4.

Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for 15 yards in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

Following an embarrassing zero-touchdown 2013 season as a starter for the Giants, Nicks signed with the Colts on a one-year "prove it" deal. He proved nothing except that he's done. Nicks caught just 38 passes for 405 yards with four touchdowns, losing snaps to raw rookie Donte Moncrief and showing no lower-body explosion. Now Nicks heads back into free agency with the same awful tape he had a year ago. Although he's just 27 years old, Nicks will find a cold market.
Jan 18 - 10:58 PM

Hakeem Nicks secured 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

Just plays after dropping a third-quarter pass, Nicks secured a 15-yard TD on a bullet throw from Andrew Luck. Slow and plodding and clearly on his last legs, Nicks offers very little to the Colts' offense aside from red-zone chops.
Jan 11 - 8:17 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught 3-of-3 targets for 59 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Nicks made his best play as a Colt early in the second quarter, skying over a traffic jam for a 45-yard grab. It was the kind of play Nicks used to make with regularity in New York. Despite the nice catch, Nicks was still just a role player. That will remain the case for next week's trip to Denver.
