It’s not a grand multi-year contract, but it’s a start for Nicks who signed a one-year $3.5 million deal with the Colts. While a longer term would have been more ideal, it sounds like the Colts are going with more of a we’ll try you for one year to see if we like you type of approach. Nicks adds to a crowded backfield of..
Colts’ receivers including Veteran Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Da’Rick Rogers, LaVon Brazill, plus two tight ends. Andrew Luck would have to be an octopus to get any one of these guys a significant amount of targets to bring one of them to 1,000 plus receiving yards in 2014.
The true test for Nicks in proving himself will be ball security this season, as he had a major case of the dropsies all last year. Hopefully, Luck uses better glue on the ball than Eli Manning did.
