  • Nicks to be paid more than Calvin Johnson?

    You know who's excited about Megatron's $132 million deal? Hakeem Nicks -- who could get MORE. His numbers are better than Calvin Johnson's through their first three seasons (in three fewer games, too). Johnson had 193 catches, 3,071 yards, 21 TDs through 3 years. Nicks has 202-3,034-24. ... Also, Nicks is signed through 2013, so he'll be a free agent just as the new TV money kicks in and the NFL salary cap goes through the roof. ... Jerry Reese and @peterjschaffer, start your engines. #NFL

    I doubt Reese would ever do that.

      I think Nicks is a very good WR but he is not Calvin Johnson.

          Um what?

          Mike Wallace has even better numbers. Do you think Mike Wallace will get more than Johnson?
          Johnson just came off a 1681 yd, 16 TD season. He is the best WR in the NFL. While nicks was outproduce by cruz last year.

            The Lions depend far more on Johnson than the Giants do on Nicks.

              It's not about an argument of two players' skillsets, but rather what kind of market environment Nicks could potentially be in at 2014 which is a big FA year with caps ballooning.

              He's obviously speaking in extremes as Nicks won't be paid in CJ or Fitz's range, but he does have a point in that this deal inflates positional value prematurely.

                Nicks might be the greatest receiver who ever wore a Giants uniform and I hope he and Cruz retire as Giants but neither of them is Megatron. The guy is ridiculous.

                GO JAI-YANTS!!

                  Big nicks fan . But , he's not in Calvin Johnson's league right now..
                  He still will command more than what Vincent Jackson got.. Probably in between Jackson & Calvin Johnson area ... Like 95 million & Cruz won't get much less ... Add JPP & KP & we have to shed out some serious cash over the next 3 years

                      I love me some Nicks and Cruz but if they want to get paid like Megatron, I guess I look forward to the days of Jernigan and uhmm...yea.

                      Because it wouldn't be smart of us to lock down so much of our cap into two WR's.

                        Hakeem is a great receiver for the Giants; however Megatron he is not at this point! Nicks will get paid but not Megatron numbers! that guy is a beast in every sense of the word.

                          Calvin Johnson > Hakeem Nicks , Not saying Nicks is bad, but he isnt CJ. In fact, I can only think of 1 or 2 others you can compare to CJ, Andre Johnson and Larry Fitz.

                            That is very True.. but if the Giants dont come in with numbers similar to those Calvin got then he will go into the FA Market to see what it will bear. If that happens someone will throw crazy money at him and we will lose him. We may want to consider getting him to sign and EXT at some point..

                            Football has been very, very good to us.
                            After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                            But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                            # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                            1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle

                            5-NE
                            Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                              I have no problem with Nicks getting a crap-load of money. I don't have a problem with Cruz getting it either. If that means a revolving door at 3rd/4th WR then so be it but having those weapons with Eli is a big deal and will keep us competitive for a looooooooooooong time.
