You may be forgiven for forgetting who Hakeem Nicks was.

He may be a great solution for the Indianapolis Colts after they unsuccessfully flirted with signing Eric Decker, who went with the New York Jets.

However the Colts have managed to add former Giants wide receiver Nicks to their roster, linking up with Reggie Wayne.

It's a fairly good offensive fit, but as I said, you may be forgiven for forgetting as Nicks has spent a fair portion of the past three years out with injury or suffering from lacklustre form.

Whilst he's still only 26-years-old, Nicks has a Super Bowl win to his name and on his day can be a formidable receiver.

It's obviously a risk and the Colts know that, only giving him a one-year contract and $3.5 million up front.

There's potential for more but that's what every pundit has said about Nicks over the past few years.

We'll wait to see if this move is inspired or insipid.
