Saints released WR Hakeem Nicks.
Nicks lasted less than two weeks on the roster. Once one of the most promising receivers in the game, the 2009 first-rounder just does not have it anymore. Nicks is only 28, but his NFL career is likely over. Mon, Aug 8, 2016 12:07:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks' one-year, $885,000 deal with the Saints does not include a signing bonus.

In other words, it will not cost New Orleans much to cut him at the end of camp. With rookie Michael Thomas shining, Nicks faces a tough road to the final roster. He will have to show well as a blocker to earn a spot.

Saints signed WR Hakeem Nicks to a one-year contract.

He's taking Vincent Brown's (calf, I.R.) spot on the 90-man roster. Nicks played in six games with the Giants last year, but was a non-factor. Despite only entering his age-28 season, it's a surprise any team was willing to give him a shot. Nicks will compete for the Saints' No. 5 receiver job.

Free agent Hakeem Nicks is working out for the Saints on Wednesday.

It's Nicks' second known workout of the offseason after getting one with the Bengals last month. The Saints poked around Nicks last season before he signed with the Giants. Still only 28, Nicks doesn't have much left to give. New Orleans also took a look at Denarius Moore, Nathan Palmer, and Vincent Brown.

Free agent Hakeem Nicks worked out for the Bengals on Tuesday.

It's the first we've heard of Nicks since the start of free agency. His workout came the same day Mike Williams was in Cincinnati. Nicks could muster just seven catches for 54 yards in six appearances for the Giants last season. Nicks is only 28, but his career is hanging by a thread.
Tue, Apr 5, 2016 05:04:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

He also made a critical drop on the final drive with the Giants down by five before eventually turning it over on downs. Nicks played in six games with the Giants this season, catching seven passes for 54 scoreless yards. He'll head back to the free-agent market where he'll be greeted with crickets.

Hakeem Nicks managed one catch for four yards in Week 16.

Nicks played the most snaps behind Rueben Randle, but had only three targets. He has five catches since reuniting with the Giants.

Hakeem Nicks said he is ready to "take full advantage" of the opportunity Odell Beckham's suspension has afforded him.

"This is a great opportunity for me," Nicks said. "I was always told when an opportunity knocks at the door, you've got to answer. So I’m answering." Nicks has just four catches in four games since reuniting with the Giants, but he should be given more looks this week. He is still not worth using in the fantasy championship.

Hakeem Nicks caught his only target for seven yards in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

His lone catch set the Giants up at the one-yard line, though Andre Williams followed that up by getting stuffed on the goal line. Nicks has drawn three targets in two games since joining the Giants during their bye week. He’s not a fantasy option.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 06:04:00 PM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano expects Hakeem Nicks to be move involved this week.

Nicks saw two targets and played 11 snaps against Washington, but he did take Rueben Randle's spot in the offense for a series in the first half. Randle has been terrible this season, and Graziano says the Giants like what they have seen from Nicks in practice. We will believe it when we see it, but it would be difficult for anyone to play worse than Randle.

Hakeem Nicks is active for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Nicks may see a few passes thrown his way as the No. 4 option, but he is very unlikely to become a fantasy factor this season. There is a reason he failed to make the Titans' roster and spent two months as a free agent.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 11:30:00 AM

Hakeem Nicks is expected to be active Sunday against the Redskins.

The Giants signed Nicks during the bye week. With Victor Cruz done for the year and Larry Donnell also facing a lengthy absence, Nicks will have a chance to carve a role for himself in the passing game. Of course, there's a reason he went two months without a job after getting cut by the Titans at the end of training camp. It's extremely unlikely that Nicks will emerge as a fantasy option at any point this year.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 09:41:00 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano said newly-signed WR Hakeem Nicks could be inactive Week 12.

Nicks spent his best seasons with the Giants, but the offense has changed dramatically under new-OC Ben McAdoo. Even once he learns the offense enough to be active, nothing Nicks has shown the last three seasons suggests he will be a fantasy factor. He can be left on the wire.

Giants signed WR Hakeem Nicks.

Nicks was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2009 and had easily the best seasons of his career with the team in 2010 and 2011. Nicks struggled with the Giants late in his time there, however, and did next to nothing with the Colts last year before failing to make the Titans' final roster out of camp this season. Injuries have ravaged Nicks' once-promising career, and there is little reason to think he will suddenly become a fantasy factor in his return to New York. Nicks will take the roster spot of Victor Cruz, who is headed to injured reserve after undergoing calf surgery.
Tue, Nov 17, 2015 09:31:00 AM

Free agent WR Hakeem Nicks will work out for the Ravens this week.

Other free-agent receivers will join Nicks for the workout, but those names are unclear. Nicks, 28 in January, hasn't shown much of anything since 2013 with the Giants. The Ravens need a body after Steve Smith Sr.'s torn Achilles'.
