Found June 11, 2013 on The Other Paper:
Is that a smile you see on Eli Manning's face? You bet it is. Hakeem Nicks finally showed his own face as the Giants prepare for their mandatory three-day mini-camp at their Timex Performance Center facility Tuesday morning and you know nobody was happier than the Giants quarterback to see his M.I.A. receiver. This was the expected course of action for Nicks, who irked coach Tom Coughlin by not showing up for any of the team’s organized activities the past two weeks, after telling Coughlin he would be there. The OTAs were voluntary — and Nicks could not be fined for missing them — but Manning was hoping he could get an early jump on the season by working out with his favorite target this spring.  Nicks would have incurred fines totaling $66,150 if he were to miss all three days of the mandatory camp . Nicks is coming off arthroscopic left knee surgery and was not going to do much, if anything on the field at the OTAs or this minicamp. It remains to be seen if he practices at all the next three days. Last year, Nicks broke his right foot in an OTA practice. He is entering the last year of his contract. Victor Cruz is not going to attend this camp. He cannot be fined because he is not under contract and still trying to hammer out a deal. One dance down and one more salsa to go.

  • Good to see him back and ready to go. After all, he didn't miss anything mandatory so no harm no foul. Now Cruz needs to get his butt in gear. He'll be signed by the June 17th deadline, I'm sure of it.
