INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – 26-year old Hakeem Nicks chose the Colts over the Carolina Panthers, agreeing to a one-year deal.

He spent the last four years with the New York Giants after being drafted in the first round out of North Carolina in 2009. Nicks averaged 77 catches, 1,122 yards and nine touchdowns from 2010 to 2011, but has been plagued by injuries the last two seasons. He says he’s completely healthy after two years of foot and knee injuries.

The 6’1 receiver caught only 56 passes for 896 yards and no touchdowns last year in New York. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
