First off, I love this guy. He is a baller who can run all the routes and has great hands. However, he simply cannot stay healthy and now his foot injury apparently is not fully healed. Jerry Reese has a big decision to make when his contract expires. Again, I would love for him to remain a Giant for years to come, but his injury history is going to make it hard for Jerry to offer him a huge contract. Victor Cruz is no flash in the pan and there is no way in hell we ever let him walk. Can we really pay Cruz, JPP, Eli and Nicks? What happens with Tuck when his contract expires? Osi is going to leave because we cannot afford to keep him.
Eli has restructured his contract to help with keeping players on this roster, but by doing so, the bulk of his money will be paid out starting next season and beyond. We simply cannot afford all of these studs. If Nicks goes though another season where he misses a handful of games, Reese is going to have to decide what to do. Nicks is going to demand a huge pay raise. I really hope the rest of our receivers can step up big time. I would play Nicks as little as possible until his foot feels better, if it ever does this season. I don't want to see him break that bone again. This is not John Madden football. We won't have the money to keep them all, without seriously gutting this roster. Thoughts.
