New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was viewed as one of the biggest names that could have been dealt before this afternoon’s trade deadline, but now it doesn’t appear that the team will be moving one of their top pass catchers.

From Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants aren’t expected to make any moves:

Moving Nicks made sense when the Giants were winless, but now that they have pulled off back-to-back wins, it wouldn’t be wise to get rid of one of their offensive threats.

Add in that the Giants sit just two games back in the NFC East, and it makes the most sense to keep your roster intact.
