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.
