Several NFL teams to ‘kick tires’ on trade for New York Giants’ Hakeem Nicks?


The New York Giants are currently sitting at a league worst 0-6 and discussion has already shifted to the 2014 NFL Draft. It might quickly be shifting to the trade market as CBS Sports is reporting that several NFL teams are expected to call the Giants in regards to a potential trade for 25-year-old wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks.

According to CBS, both the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons have held internal discussions about a potential Nicks trade:

Among the teams holding internal discussions about him, according to club sources, were the 49ers and Falcons.

The NFL trade deadline is October 29th at 4 p.m. ET
