  Saints | Hakeem Nicks cut    Mon Aug 8, 01:35 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Hakeem Nicks was released Monday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: That didn't last long. The Saints had seen enough of the veteran and let him go less than two weeks into his time with the team. At age 28, Nicks has likely played his final snaps as a pro.

  Saints | Hakeem Nicks signing with Saints    Wed Jul 27, 05:34 PM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) will sign a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We're a bit surprised with this signing, but the Saints just need some depth at the WR position. Nicks is no longer the player he used to be, and things fell off quickly for the 28-year old. He's not a lock for the 53-man roster, and Nicks is only the team's WR5 at best if he does make the team.

  Saints | Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints    Wed May 18, 01:26 PM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) is among the group of receivers working out for the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Nicks is a long was from the salad days he had with the New York Giants, and his impact in Indianapolis in 2014 as well as last season briefly with the Giants, was minimal. Don't expect it to be different this year with the Saints, if he lasts on the roster.

  Chargers | Matt Slauson joins Chargers    Sat May 7, 05:50 PM

Free-agent OG Matt Slauson (Bears) agreed to a two-year deal with the San Diego Chargers Saturday, May 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chargers continue to upgrade their offensive line...a note that Melvin Gordon's fantasy owners should take note of. The team has worked diligently to improve their rushing attack after Gordon had a disappointing rookie season in 2015.

  Bengals | Hakeem Nicks visits with Cincy    Tue Apr 5, 05:05 PM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) worked out with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, April 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are still trying to upgrade their WR corps after losing both Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamed Sanu (Falcons) in free agency. Nicks is nowhere near the player he used to be, and he won't be a fantasy factor if he signs with a new team.

  Giants | Hakeem Nicks ready to step up    Sat Dec 26, 12:55 AM

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks said he is ready to fill the void created by the one-game suspension to WR Odell Beckham Jr. in Week 16. 'I look it as a great opportunity, and when opportunity knocks on the door, you've got to answer it.'

Footballguys view: Nicks may be ready to elevate his game, but we're not counting on him for much in Week 16. Instead, guys like Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris make for better fantasy options without Beckham on the field. We like Randle as a WR2/WR3 and Harris as a WR5/flex in Week 16.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks played 11 snaps in Week 12.

Footballguys view: He's back with his hold team, and Nicks had one grab for four yards on Sunday against Washington. We're not expecting much from the veteran going forward, especially when Eli Manning has a "bad Eli" day.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks is learning the team's offense in practice but said the task hasn't been that tough. He said he has worked with both the scout team and the offense during practice.

Footballguys view: It shouldn't take Nicks long to get up to speed since he's back with his old team. He's already got strong chemistry with QB Eli Manning. Both Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr. said that Nicks has looked good in practice.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks has caught more passes (306) for more yards (4,538) from QB Eli Manning than any other receiver. WR Victor Cruz is in second place with 264 catches for 3,963 yards.

Footballguys view: We're interested to see what Nicks can do now that he's back with the Giants. Fantasy owners should not expect much from the aging veteran, but it is cool to see him in a Giants uniform again.

  Giants | Hakeem Nicks returning to Giants    Tue Nov 17, 09:29 AM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Titans) will re-sign with the New York Giants, according to sources.

Footballguys view: In deeper leagues you want to monitor Nicks. Going back to the Giants is good for the seasoned veteran. He's not the same player he used to be, so make sure to have a proper level of expectations.

Footballguys view: The Rams are likely updating their emergency list here. Nicks has gotten a few looks (he worked out for the Ravens last week), but nobody has wanted to yet take a chance on the veteran.
