Nicks agreed to a one-year contract with the Titans on Friday, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports.

Nicks will join a wideout corps that includes Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Harry Douglas, making a major resurgence unlikely for the 27-year-old former Giant. More important than the competition at his position, Nicks consistently struggles to separate from defensive backs, as he's one of the slower wide receivers in the league. He caught 38-of-70 targets for 405 yards and four touchdowns with the Colts last season, and there's little reason to expect much more in 2015.

Nicks is expected to sign with the Titans, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Nicks visited with the Titans earlier this week, and other interested teams have apparently been told that he'll sign with Tennessee. While the Titans lack a proven top-notch wideout, they do already have Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Harry Douglas on the roster. It thus seems unlikely that Nicks will earn an every-down role, and he may just be the No. 4 receiver in a questionable offense.

Nicks visited with the Titans on Monday, The Tennessean reports.

Nicks was released in March by Indianapolis, for whom he caught 38 balls for 405 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games (six starts) in 2014. The six-year veteran has also visited with the 49ers during the offseason. Tennessee added veteran wideout Harry Douglas early in free agency to join returnees Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, but there's certainly room for more.

Nicks will make a free agent visit with the 49ers this week, ESPN reports.

Nicks managed a career-low 38 catches for 405 yards in a reduced role during his only season with the Colts last year. However, in playing 16 games last term, Nicks turned in the first complete season across his six-year career thus far. Although his upside remains limited by diminished explosiveness, Nicks could add decent depth behind top options Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin for the 49ers next season, should talks progress into a contract signing.

Nicks had nine catches for 72 yards in Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Cowboys. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

With T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) inactive, the Colts turned their focus to Hakeem Nicks, resulting in season highs in both receptions and yards. With a first-round bye now out of reach for Indianapolis, the Colts may consider resting Hilton again to get him fresh for the playoffs, which could lead to another game of increased opportunities for Nicks.

Nicks had two receptions for 44 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.

It was a surprising performance since Nicks had just one catch the previous three games and seemed to be stuck on the bench behind Donte Moncrief. Nicks still played fewer snaps on offense than Moncrief (36 to 21) and Moncrief had four targets, so it may not indicate a big reversal of playing time.

Nicks did not have a reception and was targeted just two times in Sunday's win over Cleveland.

Nicks played just 18 snaps on offense as he's fallen far behind Donte Moncrief (who played 50 snaps on offense) for the third receiver role.

Nicks did not have a reception or a target and played just 17 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over Washington.

Nicks has been passed by Donte Moncrief as the third receiver. After Moncrief had 134 yards receiving and two long touchdowns, it's hard to see Nicks having a large role on the offense the rest of the season barring injury.

Nicks had one reception for 16 yards and was targeted just once in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Nicks played fewer snaps than rookie Donte Moncrief (30 to 28), which isn't a good sign. The two receivers have been trading off playing time, but neither can be counted on for consistent production as the third or fourth receiver in the Indy offense.
