With the Giants now sitting at 0-6, and several teams hurting at the wide receiver spot, Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Falcons and 49ers specifically are interested in acquiring Hakeem Nicks. Several NFL clubs are planning to determine the degree to which New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks might be available via trade following New York dropping to 0-6 this week, according to league sources. Among the teams holding internal discussions about him, according to club sources, were the 49ers and Falcons (who lost Julio Jones for the season but are not conceding the season … at least certainly not yet). New England and Baltimore are also contending teams in need of an upgrade at receiver, and the market for Nicks would be robust, sources believe, if the Giants express a willingness to listen to offers. La Canfora reported that the Giant may not be interested in trading the free agent to be. New York is an old-school team, and wouldn’t want to give off indications it is writing off the season, however, with Nicks a big fan of Eli Manning, and someone not seeking a trade himself, the strong possibility always remains the Giants could still re-sign him as a free agent in the spring even if he did depart. There is no ill will or hard feelings between the sides, sources said. It’s just the contrary, and Nicks has never blanched or complained about not getting an extension from the team.
