Hakeem Nicks ready to make most of his next fresh start

The way Hakeem Nicks sees it, everything worked out perfectly for his NFL career to get off to a fast start. A first-round pick in 2009, he went to the New York Giants, who badly needed a No. 1 wide receiver to replace the recently released Plaxico Burress. Nicks thrived in then-offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride's downfield passing attack, which emphasized the role of an "X" receiver...

Andre Johnson: Reasonable Expectations With Colts in 2015

On March 11, the Indianapolis Colts signed longtime Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson to a three-year, $21 million contract. The expectation with this signing was to provide depth and veteran leadership to the wide receiver position.

Hakeem Nicks Visiting with the 49ers

This came completely out of left field.

Affordable Free Agent Options at Wide Receiver for Colts

Many big name free agents have been tied to the Indianapolis Colts in recent days that would in-turn cost the organization substantial pay days. Andre Johnson, DeMarco Murray and Adrian Peterson just to name a few. Age, money and health are virtually always an issue with the top level free agents and the above are no exception.

Indianapolis Colts: what to do with Hakeem Nicks

Hakeem Nicks is an interesting story for the Indianapolis Colts. He didn’t have good enough of a season to say that he will ever get back to the form he once was, but he did show some improvement at the end of the season. Considering the Colts only have T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief (and soon Duron Carter) under contract it might not be such a bad idea. I’ve had my fair share...

Could Hakeem Nicks be the Colts’ Secret Weapon?

With Bill Belichick’s practice of zeroing in on and neutralizing the opposing team’s top play maker, we can likely assume that Indianapolis Colts’ wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will be the one of Revis Island this Sunday. This is where Colts’ wide receiver Hakeem Nicks could come into play. An injury-prone Reggie Wayne is barely drawing any targets as of late and tight ends Dwayne...

Hakeem Nicks Hauls In A Fade From Andrew Luck For A TD

If not for a horrendous Tom Brady interception, the Colts were looking at a two-score halftime deficit. Instead, the Colts capitalized on the opportunity, with Andrew Luck finding Hakeem Nicks on a fade for a touchdown. Cue sad/angry Brady face.

Hakeem Nicks signed with the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason on a one-year prove yourself deal. After four games he is seventh on the team with a mere 94 receiving yards, but third in targets with 18.
