David Diehl Doesn’t See Hakeem Nicks Returning to the Giants: OT David Diehl told ProFootballTalk.com on Wednesday that he does not see WR Hakeem Nicks returning to the Giants in 2014. Nicks will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season.
“I don’t see it happening,” Diehl said. “I would love to see it, he is like a brother to me, he lived with me when he first got drafted by the Giants because we have the same agent. So I knew him coming out of college. But for the sheer fact that we just paid Victor Cruz, there is a lot of money to be had and Hakeem Nicks is a No. 1 receiver and someone is going to pay him that money.”
CB Terrell Thomas Named “NFC Defensive Player of the Week”: New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas has been named “NFC Defensive Player of the Week” for his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. Thomas led the Giants with 11 tackles (10 solo), a sack, and a forced fumble that was recovered by the Giants, ending Philadelphia’s most serious offensive scoring threat of the game.
Thomas is the first Giants’ cornerback to be named “NFC Defensive Player of the Week” since Aaron Ross in Week 11 of the 2008 season. The other Giants corners to win the award since its inception in 1984 are Everson Walls (1990), Jason Sehorn (twice in 1997), and Phillippi Sparks (1998).
This is the 37th time a Giants player has received the award.
