EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — Hakeem Nicks is back with the New York Giants.
The team announced Tuesday that its first-round draft pick in 2009 was signed to replace fellow wide receiver Victor Cruz on the roster.
Cruz, who did not play this season, was placed on injured reserve because he needs surgery on his left calf.
Nicks played last season with the Indianapolis Colts. He had 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, and six receptions for 98 yards and a score in the playoffs.
