and to continue/add, IF nicks can be as effective out of the slot, does he become the better choice at keeping bc of his added presence on the outside?
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!
Giants fan since 525 BC.
Cruz will get paid.
Nicks will not get paid, at least by the Giants.
Randle is here to replace Nicks.
Another example would be JPP. I think everyone can agree that he is an athletic freak and could play(possibly start in on this defense) at linebacker. Does this increase his value? No because he is already great at what he does at DE, and hopefully would never think of moving him to LB. Then you could take a look at a borderline starter like Chase Blackburn, and being proficient at another position would definitely increase his value because the potential of him being moved out of his natural position is much greater than the other guys I mentioned.
