As soon as word got out about Nate Burleson and his broken arm, the rumors started to circulate on Twitter.
It’s been rumored on Twitter for a few days and don’t know how legit it is, but Hakeem Nicks to the Lions could be possible.— SportsBlogNewYork (@SportBlogNYC) September 26, 2013
The prevailing rumor had the Lions dealing Mikel Leshoure and draft picks to the Giants for Hakeem Nicks.
Possible? Perhaps. After the Trent Richardson trade last week, anything is "possible," right?
But no, the rumors are not legit, says profootballtalk.com.
For the record, the Lions have not said anything on the record (nothing we have seen, at least) regarding any possible trade.
