Once among the league’s stickiest handsmen – notably when he carried the New York Giants to a victory in Super Bowl XLVI – wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has since endured a slew of nagging leg injuries that have crushed his explosion and derailed his once promising career.
But it looks like the still-27-year-old is ready to still be 27 and reignite a stagnant gridiron journey.
News wires filled with “Nicks to Tennessee Titans on one-year deal” last night, and all Titans fans have done since then is quiver with anticipation for another excruciatingly average NFL season.
We’ll see if this enormous-handed has-been can spark some fire in Tennessee and add some reliable depth to a wide receiving corps headed by Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Harry Douglas.
Or maybe we’ll just get another entertaining sitcom.
