The Giants seemingly had no interest in bringing back the wide receiver.
Nicks was also courted by Carolina, but flew to Indianapolis on Friday and didn't leave until he inked a contract.
Nicks won't be out of the Giants' peripheral vision for too long as our colleague Tom Rock reminds us...
Good for Nicks. Let's face it. When he skipped the voluntary workouts and then missed the Dallas game last year, his time in Tom Coughlin's locker room was over.
We wish him well. The Giants won a Super Bowl with Nicks, so taking him with a first round pick was well worth it. How many players never helped their team win one? The list is endless. Let's move on.
