Hakeem Nicks is months away from being a free agent again after playing out his one-year with the Indianapolis Colts. Yet, if the 27-year-old stays put for years to come, it looks like he may be the third or fourth receiver on the roster.

Nicks, if he stays with the Colts, will likely be behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. He had a bad year with the Colts, which is why he’ll be pushed further back in the rotation.

This past season, in 16 games, he had 38 receptions for 405 yards. He also had four touchdowns. As a result, he have to settle for an incentive-base contract in free agency.

The team also has to play tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener often, so they are using three wide receivers less often. Plus, those two will eventually have to be paid.

Nicks made $3.975 million this past season.
