EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – After missing all nine of the New York Giants' voluntary offseason workouts, veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks showed up for the start of the team's mandatory three-day minicamp.
Nicks said he spoke with coach Tom Coughlin on Tuesday morning about his absence, but he would not disclose why he didn't attend the organized team activities despite being pressed by a horde of media around his locker.
The 25-year-old Nicks is entering the final year of his contract. He is coming off an injury plagued season that started when he broke his right foot in an OTA last year and hurt his left knee in the second week of the season.
A 1,000-yard receiver in 2010 and 2011, Nicks had 53 catches for 692 yards and three scores last season.
