Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks working out for New York Giants on Tuesday

Published Add your comment

The New York Giants have gone for quality over quantity in terms of their receiving corp in 2015. 

Dumping Preston Parker last week, the Big Apple franchise currently only have two wideouts (Odell Beckham Jr. and Reuben Randle) on their roster with more than one catch to their name this season.

But, with Victor Cruz expected to be back in week four, the Giants could be about to increase their options even further with news they are working out two veterans of the position this week.

As reported by ProFootballTalk, Big Blue are bringing in former Denver Broncos and New England Patriots star Wes Welker for a workout today.

And, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN, the diminutive receiver will be joined by a man very familiar to the Giants fan base.

Nicks, of course, spent his first five years in the league with the Giants - hauling in 311 passes for 4,622 yards and 27 touchdowns in that time.

He has struggled since then though, failing to hit it off in Indianapolis before being cut by the Titans this offseason.

As for Welker, the 34-year-old has played against the Giants many times in divisional games for the Patriots over the years but, having dealt with a number of concussion issues in recent times, there was a growing belief that his time in the NFL was all but over.

Whether the Giants take a chance on either of the two veterans will depend largely on how they perform under the watchful eye of the franchise's staff today.

However, any additions to help Odell Beckham and Eli Manning out moving forward would surely be welcome.

Giants fans: Would either of these signings be good for the Giants? Have your say in the comments below...
