Colts’ WR Hakeem Nicks Not in Game Shape
Wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks whom the Indianapolis Colts signed during the free agency, is being analyzed carefully by the teams’ offensive coordinator, Pep Hamilton. What he’s seeing from the 26-year-old Nicks doesn’t sound overly encouraging at this time.
Yikes. RT @TribStarTJames: Colts OC Pep Hamilton on Hakeem Nicks: "I think he is still working to get himself in game shape."

Hamilton had this to report to Tom James of Tribune-Star (via NFL.com).
Yeah, I don’t know if I can say that I’ve seen enough. I think he is still working to get himself in game shape.
This assessment of Nicks is troubling especially if we reminisce about his 2013 season where he remained scoreless the whole year. Nicks who has battled injuries has everything to prove to his new team, especially with fellow receiving competition Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton, already the apples of Andrew Luck’s eye.
Fantasy Football potential drafters will surely want to watch Nicks in the preseason games to see exactly where, or if at all he looks to fit into rosters in 2014. Sounds like a case of Nicks shaping up, or shipping out.
