Report: Giants will sign Michael Clayton with Hakeem Nicks out

By Cindy Boren

The New York Giants, who lost wide receiver Hakeem Nicks for at least three weeks because of compartment syndrome Sunday night, reportedly will sign former Tampa Bay wide receiver Michael Clayton.

Clayton, who was released by the Buccaneers earlier this season, was playing for the UFL's Omaha team. He will sign a one-year deal with the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. In six season with the Bucs, Clayton was slowed by injuries and never surpassed his 2004 rookie totals: 80 catches for 1,193 yards and seven touchdowns.

Nicks will be out for at least three weeks after undergoing a fasciotomy Monday. For more on the ailment and its treatment, click here.
