I disagree with you on the Nicks deal; I think it will happen very quickly after Drew's deal, and definitely before FA starts. I see Loomis offering just slightly more than Evans got, and then saying if you don't take it, we are tagging you.
They can look at Nicks deal all they want, but there has been absolutely no contact with Nicks. That's what makes it an issue. They can say "Well, we can off him a bit more than Evans," but they really have no figure that they know he is comfortable with. All you know is he wants Evans deal + inflation.

Would I tag Nicks over Colston? Obviously. I even made an article on why.

Here's the thing though. Why tag a player who is saying he is disheartened, who doesn't want to get tagged and risk the distractions that come with a possible hold out? This is why I said as time ticks away, Loomis may consider having to allow Nicks to test the market. The Saints have him wanting to come back, so that's a bonus. A big one. So anything in the ballpark would likely land a deal and make negotiations go quick, sure.

I will stand by it and assume the Saints would rather gamble with tagging Nicks and negotiating with Colston and Nicks during that time than to simply let him walk... But, I do believe that as time ticks it increases the liklihood that we consider other options too. But that's all assuming Brees is done by March 5th also.

This all comes down to the Saints offerering Brady money and Drew's agent wanting Manning money. Meet in the middle somewhere and get the deal done! Though if you look at the Colts and the Patriots they are making due with a lot more journeyman non-star players because of the large qb contract. Drew really needs to look at that and have a talk with his agent about leaving something on the table.

CP4, I wouldn't start flappin your lips just yet. Saints are still the best team in the division. We could still win without Drew. Your scam newton was a fluke, he will be the one falling apart this year. Count on it. WHO DAT

Wishful thinking arsehole. How are you going from below mediocre to above average? Your GM and Coach just aren't very good. Cam Newton is a trick and pony show. Keep dreaming...................come on back mid season to state your case again. My guess is you won't be trolling here then!!!! ROFLMAO
