Giants | Are injuries affecting Hakeem Nicks' future?

The New York Giants may have a tough decision to make regarding WR Hakeem Nicks' (foot, knee) future with the team. Nicks' contract runs through 2013, at which time he would be eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. Although he is very talented, Nicks has missed time due to injury in every season of his four-year career. WR Victor Cruz is also eligible for restricted free agency at the end of this season, so the team may not be able to keep both receivers long-term. If the Giants were to lock up Cruz this season or this coming offseason, it likely would take a deal similar to Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's (five-year, $42.5 million extension with an $8.5 million signing bonus). And that might price them out of the Nicks market at the end of the 2013 season.
