Hakeem Nicks WR NYG Jan 31 '13
Hakeem Nicks' 2013 base salary increased from $2.425 million to $2.725 million after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.
Nicks had the worst season of his four-year career in 2012 as he battled knee and foot injuries, and he's never played in all 16 games in a single season. However, he's entering the final year of his rookie deal, and should be a prime bounce-back candidate. Nicks will get drafted lower than his talents suggest, but he's going to have to stay on the field.
