I wouldn't down right shoot it down because the Detroit media is usually worthless when it comes to breaking news like signing or trades.

Case in point Goodwill and the Pistons. He got embarrassed a couple times this past summer denying it was possible Billups could get #1 back from Drummond, or Dumars was talking to the Bucks about Jennings.

Obviously Im still very skeptical about this rumor, but Incarcerated Bob is somewhat of a reliable source on twitter and he's reporting things between Nicks and Detroit are heating up.

Again, take it for what you want, but this rumor is really spreading like wildfire.

Well, now the guys over there are saying they never heard anything about Nicks being OTB. Seems like that is all I have heard the past week so I am done there. Never did get a clear answer on how reliable anyone thought that specific source was.

I guess we just go on what we know for now (absolutely nothing) and we should know for certain in the next couple days I guess.

Probably bula, but I would certainly like the move.

I can't imagine it being true just because nothing cool like this happens to the Lions except Roy Williams. However, I would be ecstatic. Definitely would give us something special on offense.

This thread is in desperate need of a re title. Just got home from the bar after watching the Thursday night game and this thread got me a little more excited than I'd like to admit. Doubt it's true now that I've looked into it though. Embarassed

and it appears that our assumptions of it being crap are almost a certainty

If it were true, Billy would have been the one to post it.

I think that we will know a little bit more in the next few hours, Nicks probably wouldnt play this Sunday but would be a good move, if we could extend him I dont want a one year rental with any trade involving a 3rd rd pick or higher

Laughing Incarcerated Bob is the least reliable source on twitter. He was the guy that reported that Nnamdi Asomugha had signed with the Jets, about a month before he signed with the Eagles.

A mod over in the Giants forum said he wanted a 2014 and 2015 first for Nicks. He's injury prone and about to be a free agent, they'd be lucky to get a 2nd from anybody.

The Giants stink and I hope they keep it up, I can't stand anything New York(sports related).

For a guy who's only had 2 1000 yard seasons, none of which were over 1200 yards, and only 1 season with double digit TDs?

Yeah right.

No biggie. I am sure we would have a couple people overvaluing him if he were on the Lions and rumored to hit the block as well. And certainly the couple people in this thread that have heard of the source have been more helpful than the people over there whom I asked about the source directly. Certainly looks to be bula bula at this point. Too bad really, I really think he would be a great addition and if we got him now it would give Mayhew a chance to work out a contract that works for us rather than working around a contract another team negotiated.
