According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the New York Giants and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks haven’t been working on a contract.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the two sides aren’t talking as the final year of Nicks’ contract commences. While it’s easy to assume the Giants will use the franchise tag on Nicks, keep two important things in mind.
First, it will be very expensive to use the tag, in excess of $10 million. Second, the Giants don’t use the franchise tag very often.
I think there’s a chance the Giants could work out an extension with Nicks after the season, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if New York lets him walk in free agency.

With Stevie Brown...
The Giants say they have not given up on running back David Wilson, but that might be less out of the goodness of their hearts than simple necessity. It’s not like they have anywhere else to really turn.
Head coach Tom Coughlin and veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks came to Wilson’s defense, sort of, after the second-year back fumbled twice in New York’s loss to the Cowboys...
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin watched as his team gave up six turnovers in wild week one loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, and two of them came courtesy of his much-maligned running back David Wilson, who was benched after his costly fumbles. But he's not pulling the plug of Wilson just yet.
According to Paul Schwartz of the NY Post, Giants linebacker Dan Connor suffered a burner.
Dan Connor has a burner, return questionable. Had same problem in last preseason game. #nyg

The New York Giants had a few problems Sunday night in Dallas, but there is no debating which issue did them in the most. That was, without question, the team’s inability to protect the football, especially when it came to the running backs.
The Giants fell to the Cowboys in primetime at Jerry World, but Big Blue certainly had its chances. The Giants lost three fumbles en route...
It seems you can go home again. Words former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has wanted to hear ever since being released by Big Blue after the 2011 season.
Now — after the Giants starting running back David Wilson played so badly Sunday night he was benched — the Giants will work out free-agent running backs Jacobs and Willis McGahee on Tuesday, a league...

The Cowboys now lead the overall series 59-42-1.
The Giants’ four-game winning streak at Cowboys Stadium was the longest for New York at Dallas. The Giants had won three straight at Texas Stadium between 1988 and 1990.
