05:40 PM ET 06.19 | Hakeem Nicks revealed Wednesday that he formally apologized to Giants coach Tom Coughlin for breaking his promise to attend voluntary workouts but isn???t sorry he skipped them, with the star receiver citing injury concerns -- not his contract -- for his high-profile absence. In a lengthy and exclusive sitdown with The Post, Nicks also offered a cloudy outlook on his long-term future with the team beyond the final year of his contract, saying only that he enjoys being a Giant ???right now.??? Nicks, who was making a promotional appearance for Procter & Gamble in Herald Square as part of a new marketing deal with the company, was asked if his goal ultimately is to retire a Giant. ???I really can???t speak for my whole career,??? Nicks said. ???I enjoy being a Giant right now. I???m going to take care of what I can take care of as long as I???m a Giant, but I do understand the business side of football, too.???

The writer of this article from the NY Post needs to be witch slapped. Asking a guy who is in the final year of a contract... "Is your goal to retire a Giant" What a macaroon.

Writer, is your goal to accept less compensation than other fishwrappers might pay you?

Yup, this article is fishwrap and not worth commenting on. <Crickets>

If he enjoys being a Giant, why is he acting like a pipsqueak.

June 19, 2013  09:49 PM ET

He's just sorry that no one showed him the money.

He didn??????t say he wouldn???????t return.?????? He was just playing with the dude?????? who was interviewing him with question?????marks.

If this guy could stay healthy he'd be a very good WR. Until that time, he should **** and thank God that someone is paying him.
