Saints Will Allow Carl Nicks To Leave

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Saints G Carl Nicks is “expected to leave” New Orleans in the coming weeks.

Nicks will be a free agent during the offseason but considering the number of big name free agents that the Saints will have to address, Nicks appears to be the player Saints are willing to let go. The real key to the Saints offseason will be QB Drew Brees who will most likely get a huge contract but any money that the Saints can save on him will help them retain some of their weapons.

We have Nicks listed as the #2 best available free agent our Top 50 Free Agents list. New Orleans also has #1 Drew Brees, #18 Marques Colston, as well as CB Tracy Porter, WR Robert Meachem and DT Aubrayo Franklin.

Obviously, the Bears have to get someone better than Roy Williams this year and there plenty of great options at the position so there will be deals available. Investing in the o-line will payoff in more ways than one. Forte will have to be re-signed which could be… Read more »
