Despite speculation that Hakeem Nicks’ absence from OTAs was a sign of displeasure over his contract – and at least one report quoting a source – the receiver is apparently missing the voluntary offseason workouts for other reasons.

Nicks did not attend Thursday’s OTA and it is unclear if he will be there for the next scheduled workout on Wednesday.
