Apparently the same one Briscoe failed. Schiano must be working those poor Sucs too hard!

This is a big reason why I wasn't too upset about him leaving. The other reason was that they got Grubbs to replace him. But Nicks struggled with his weight a lot, and I always had a bad feeling he was gonna let it get out of hand. I don't know why he failed this conditioning test, but I still get the feeling this is going to be a recurring theme with him. And that is why the Bucs grossly over paid.

I saw somewhere a H/C commenting on his team not being in the shape he expected for the opening of training camp & remember it was Miami or Tampa ... must of been Tampa ... or maybe it was the Falcons? .

Passed it on the second try and failed the first one by a few seconds.
Not much of a concern but still troubling considering what they paid him.

Week 1 is still a ways off...

It's if he plays better than here that I'll then be p/o...

As Papz pointed out in another thread, the test was 16 110 yard dashes in a row, and Nicks failed by a measley 3.3 seconds. he then passed it on the 2nd try.

Much ado about squat!

He's the best OG in the NFL.

You have to make the team before you get paid.
