    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.

    I think thats a huge reason we gotta keep Nicks long term. Maybe more so than Cruz even.
    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.

    I love Nicks and the physicality he brings to the offense. I'm not ready to call him a top 5 WR though, not with just one 10+ TD season and no seasons over 1200 yards. That's not top 5 stats.

    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.
