should have pulled the trigger on Gordon for a 2nd when we had the chance, dude is young and gets 100 yards a week it seems like

nicks is broken down all the time

Are you f**king kidding? Eric Reid is our starting Free Safety for the long haul. The Niners can part with a 3rd round pick for Nicks.
LET'S DO IT!!! f**kING DO IT!!!

Seattle got Harvin back, the pressure is on.

4th rounder and it's a done deal. Giving up more than that is too much. He'll be a 10 game rental.

You think they'd do Reid and Crabtree for Nicks so we can keep our picks??

Lets think about this for a second.....

Trade a 3rd for Hakeem Nicks for 8 - 10 games before he "commands Mike Wallace money". A player who is injury prone and hasn't broken 800 yards in 3 years, yes he is on pace for 1,200 yards in NYG's offense but how will he translate to ours? He is by everyone elses' account a "young Boldin" so we'll have 3 yac possession receives with Crabtree being the most dynamic and still no deep threat....

or.......

Trade a 2nd for Josh Gordon for 2.5 seasons with the POSSIBILITY of him being suspended for up to a season. A player that is on pace for 1,200 yards and is only scratching the surface of his potential and he has been playing Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and god knows who else(I don't remember if Cleveland has played other QBs...). Gordon would give us a real big play/deep threat that is big and physical, something our offense does not have.

I will take a "character risk" for 2.5 seasons at minimum salary in a trade that we could attach conditions regarding a potential suspensions over an injury prone version of 2 other players that we already have on our roster.

Neither trade is realistic and I don't expect Balke to move on either player so it is an irrelevant discussion. The only thing that tips the scale in Nicks' favor is his post season experience and I don't think it is enough to warrant it because our team's MO is to have players sit and learn the playbook for a few weeks. So we'd burn 2 or 3 weeks of an 6-8 game(plus post season) rental having Nicks learn the book.

That point makes the acquisition of Gordon that much more likable because the team actually be investing their time and money in a long term investment that we might actually be able to afford a contraction extension on in 2.5 years rather than losing Nicks to FA 4 months after spending a pick on him.

this is why i wanted gordon when we had the chance. Sure he has character concerns, but dude is one of the best young receivers in the game. And the browns only wanted a 2nd for him. I think the browns wont trade him now because he has been beasting. But when they dumped Richardson and pretty much announced that everybody was available we should have jumped all over that.
Its funny that this whole debate about Nicks is entirey theoretical, nobody knows for sure whether the Giants will trade him or not and what their asking price might be, all the article is doing is speculating that there are teams interested in trading for Nicks, not that anyone has had an actual conversation with NY about it yet.
