In the thread in NFL News, there is a link to a tweet that there are incentives built in. Not sure how much as of yet

yeah, I saw that, not too worried about incentives, if he hits them great, be all the better for us.

Pretty solid deal for you guys. All last year he looked slow and had an some attitude issues about his contract, and missed some meetings. If he can get healthy again, you've added a heck of a weapon.

Hell of a signing and a hell of an offseason. Even better, nobody realizes this. Everyone is focused on the teams screwing their cap over (Aints, Pats, Broncos) and we aren't getting any spotlight. That's perfect for me, the big winner team(s) according to the media always fall flat and the value signing teams do well! Go Colts and go Grigson!

Really like this signing for the Colts. Nicks is a top tier wide receiver in the NFL.

This and the Jones signings make me really happy. I am still hoping Costa was signed to be a backup and not our starter considering he didn't look any better than Samson last year, albeit he will be cheaper than him this year. If Nicks plays well this year then maybe he can stick as our number 2 when Wayne retires.
