    Report: Nicks trying to impress Luck

    Nicks: "Andrew Luck is one of the best young quarterbacks in the game and I wanted to play with him."

    This was my favorite quote from the press conference because it proves that Luck has as much attraction as any other player in the league.

    Also, here's a story that should encourage all of us:

    Hakeem Nicks gets it.

    In past years, he possibly didnít. He probably didnít. Now, he does.

    Per a source with knowledge of Nicksí plans, heís promptly heading to The IMG Academy to train with players preparing for the draft. His goal will be to get himself into peak physical shape for offseason workouts, in order to make an immediate impression on quarterback Andrew Luck.

    While Nicks wanted to return home to Charlotte and play for the Panthers, Carolina showed no genuine interest, per multiple sources. That made it easier for Nicks to realize that, in Indianapolis, heíll be playing with an accurate young quarterback and competing with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton to become Luckís favorite target.

    Nicks also could benefit from Luckís influence. Giants quarterback Eli Manning isnít wired to tell teammates what they should be doing. Luck, by all appearances, is. It could help Nicks translate his one-year stint with the Colts into a longer-term, bigger-money deal elsewhere.

    In the end, this yearís experiment with a 2009 first-round receiver could work out better than last yearís one-season stint from 2009 failed first-rounder Darrius Heyward-Bey. For the money invested in Nicks ($4 million including per-game roster bonuses and up to $5.5 million with incentives), it could end up being a win-win.

    Watching the Sacramento Kings like:


    - ďHe runs meetings like a coach. Basically, Iím playing with a coordinator on the field. Heís a football God. He sees everything, and he sees the big picture of everything." - Frank Gore on Andrew Luck
    - "He is as smart as Peyton, as accurate as Brady, tougher than Ben and as athletic as RG3." - Anonymous Head Coach on Andrew Luck
