No, The Colts Did Not Trade For Hakeem Nicks

Just received this from the Colts:

The link you forwarded was not real and was never on our site. Evidently, it was mocked up by someone who created a "broken link" which does not go to the club site. I hope this explains.

I think most of us thought something like this was the reason Hakeem Nicks suddenly was a hot jersey fans could buy at the Pro Shop. Though, Matt Grecco astutely remarked upon hearing this reasoning from the Colts:

they need to beef up their security a little bit, if that is the case... That shouldn't happen

I would be remiss if I did not say that the Colts passed on Hakeem Nicks in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. They took (gulp) Donald Brown.

Nicks has 126 catches for 1842 yards and 17 TDs in his two-year career.

Donald Brown has 778 at 3.8 a carry with 5 TDs in two years. 

Just throwing that out there.
