NFL trade rumors: Giants still shopping Hakeem Nicks

Nick Laham

New York is still willing to part with its star receiver for the right package.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is still a possibility to be traded before Tuesday's trade deadline, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Nicks has been rumored as a potential trade chip for a month. As an unrestricted free agent after this season, Nicks does not have incredible value as he could walk from the team dealing for him after half of a campaign.This year, Nicks has caught 34 passes for 521 yards but is yet to score a touchdown.

One big positive this year for Nicks has been his durability. The former North Carolina Tar Heel has never played all 16 games in a season before, but is one pace to do so.

The Giants at 2-6 are incredibly still in the playoff hunt considering what a bad division the NFC East is proving to be. New York is only two games behind the Dallas Cowboys, who are making a trip to MetLife Stadium in three weeks.
