Hakeem Nicks Visiting Titans

Despite being only 27 years old, receiver Hakeem Nicks hasn’t generated much interest on the free agent market. But after telling Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports last week that he is “nowhere near finished,” Nicks has in fact lined up a visit, as he’s meeting with the Titans today, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean (Twitter link).

Nicks was highly productive during stretches of his time with the Giants, particularly from 2010-11, when he averaged 78 receptions for more than 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns. He faded during the latter portion of his time with New York, however, and was forced to take a one-year deal with the Colts prior to the 2014 season. Nicks continued to struggle in Indianapolis, catching just 38 passes for 405 yards.

But the North Carolina product’s youth is obviously enticing, and he’d add depth to a Titans receiving corps that is mostly fronted by young players. With Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter currently projected as starters, and free agent signee Harry Douglas penciled in as Tennessee’s No. 3, Nicks would have to fight for playing time.

Nicks has only taken one other known visit, as he met with the 49ers near the end of March.
