Colts sign WR Nicks

Indianapolis, IN ( - The Indianapolis Colts have signed former New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

The one-year deal is worth $3.5 million plus incentives, according to the Indianapolis Star.

"Hakeem is a big, tough, and highly competitive wide receiver who knows what it takes to win," said Colts general manager Ryan Grigson. "His big-play potential requires attention from the defense every time he's out on the field. He adds another highly talented playmaker to our offense and we are happy to announce he is now an Indianapolis Colt."

Nicks caught 56 passes for 896 yards with no touchdowns in 15 games last season, his fifth with the Giants.

The North Carolina product had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011, but dealt with injuries in 2012.

Originally selected by the Giants in the first round of the 2009 draft, Nicks has caught 311 passes for 4,622 yards and 27 touchdowns in 70 career games. He won a Super Bowl with New York following the 2011 season.
