I’m not sure he has to prove anything. Nicks’ tremendous talent is undeniable. Like all players, Nicks would certainly help himself if he can avoid injuries and stay on the field. He did not play a full 16-game season in any of his first four years and in 2012 he was slowed all season – and missed three games and most of two others – with a knee injury. Nicks did play in 19 of 20 games and caught 104 passes (regular season and postseason) in the 2011 championship season. The Giants would love to see that kind of durability and production again.
Is it just the position, or does it seem like every year our safeties and secondary gets wracked with injuries? I know injuries are a part of the game, but it seems for some reason our secondary has more than any other unit. Could that be conditioning?

I disagree with your premise.
What do the Giants gain and lose if
Other than a little speed, I’m not sure they lose anything. Pascoe and Hynoski are both accomplished blockers and sure-handed receivers. Pascoe is a little faster and will likely gain more yards after catching the ball. And Pascoe is certainly capable of blocking ends or linebackers, as is Hynoski.
