A) Do we pay him like a Top-10 receiver if we expect him to suit up for 11 games and play like "Hakeem Nicks" in 5?
B) Will someone else??
I know those questions won't make me popular, but I assure you it's the TYPE OF THING Reese is (will be) thinking about.
Sadly, there's no way we keep both Nicks and Cruz. It's not possible with the cap.
Given the injuries he's already had, I don't understand how he wouldn't lose effectiveness over the years. I hope he remains healthy for the rest of his career but what he has gone through already is alarming.

Randle and Nicks seem to have a similar skill set. I don't know to what extent but I'm sure we'll learn about their similarities or differences next season.
