Rookie Nicks proves himself against the Jets

It probably isn’t the easiest thing for a rookie in New York, surrounded by a cluster of other receivers who are fighting to be in the same position as he, to be able to turn some heads in a preseason game.

Rookie Hakeem Nicks proved otherwise, snatching two touchdown passes in last night’s 27-25 preseason loss to the crosstown rival Jets. Racking up 144 yards on the night on six catches, Nicks caught a ball from QB David Carr at the Jets’ 40 yard line and sprinted to the end zone for one of his two scores.

Nicks was highly touted coming into this season, but when I attended Giants training camp, Nicks was mainly a spectator. It’s nice to see him in the game to get some action. Hopefully he’s able to contribute to this team throughout the season.
