NFL Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will sign a 1-year contract with the New Orleans Saints confirmed by Peter Schaffer, his agent on Wednesday.
Nicks posted a photo of the Saints logo on his Twitter account before his agent confirmed the move to NFL.com. This contract will give him another chance to revive his career.
The twenty-eight years old wide receiver is coming off a season in which he was played for the New York Giants. The Giants also drafted him in the first round of 2009 Draft. He had seven receptions for 54 yards in six games last season.
He is also a former member of Indianapolis Colts during the 2014 season wherein he had four touchdowns and caught 38 passes in for yards.
The 6-foot-1, 208 pounds veteran will replace the twenty-seven years old, Vincent Brown who is injured due to the calf injury. The loss of Brown in the team is a big loss because the Saints don’t have receiver older than 24 that is why they acquired Nicks and after the release of veteran Marques Colston this offseason.
Hakeem Nicks will join the other wide receivers such as Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead, Brandon Coleman and the over-all second round draft pick, Michael Thomas.
