“Don’t Believe the Nicks Hype”

Posted on March 13, 2012 8:46 am by The Commish

By: Justin Pawlowski




 
Late last night, Saints OG Carl Nicks tweeted out that he had just received a “respectable” offer from the Saints.
 
As fans everywhere scurried, I was told by my source to “not believe the hype” surrounding this news.
 
Despite Nicks receiving a “respectable” offer from the Saints, Nicks is still looking to be the highest paid guard in the NFL, so “respectable” just won’t be enough.
 
Nicks is a 2-time All-Pro guard and has gained the reputation as one of the best guards in the NFL.
 
With the Saints having some issues with the salary cap, and their impending punishment for their bounties, it would be a surprise for Nicks not to test free agency beginning today at 4:00.
 
Nicks will be one of the top targets for the Buccaneers who have the 3rd most cap room in the NFL.  According to my source, the Buccaneers do not believe the hype of this latest offer by the Saints and still plan to go after Nicks as one of their top priorities.

Replacing Faine/Larsen and Trueblood will do wonders for this offense.

LGB won't have to break 8 tackles in the backfield on every play.

Would love Nicks.  However I am a little apprehensive considering the last Saints Pro Bowl OL we got in FA didn't exactly live up to his hype...

LOL

That would be even funnier, if it was not true.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Big difference between being a one-time Pro Bowl alternate anbd two-time all-pro.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

The Saints have $5M in cap space...I thought this was pretty fishy this morning when I read it on Twitter.

Twitter is really adding a whole new dynamic to Free Agency

Was that before or after Colston? I just heard they got him a 5 year deal from Glazer. I don't see a Nicks deal being struck by 4pm today. (or at all for that matter)

Nicks Tweet is a sign he expects to leave th Saints, not stay with them.  He is trying to gain leverage with whatever ever non-Saints team(s) he is negotiating with

I warned people when Faine was signed that he wasn't what so many fans here thought he was.
