If someone offers a 1st and a 3rd for Nicks do you take it?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Nicks is a RFA and is a first round tender. Until he signs his tender, a team can have him for a 1st and a 3rd. If someone were to offer this do we take it?...

I'd put a dead horse's head in their bed.

That would prove an interesting scenario...

I'm not sure you tempt fate as the Saints have had Lady Luck on their side the past few years in later rounds...

That's tough. He's going to get a huge pay day next season. Can we afford it?

I would say no. Guards are relatively easy to find, but dominate ones like Nicks are very rare. With the window of opportunity for the Saints being now, I would believe the Saints will do everything in their power to keep him around.

Hell to the NO!!! Nicks is a Faneca type of player at guard that comes around very seldom. The interior line i very important too keep our run game going and Brees upright. Pay the man and quit talking this nonsense.

Tough question for Loomis to answer. As long as his contract would not prohibit a Drew extension, I'd say no. I'd keep him. His play has been worth what most #1 and 3 picks have contributed.

+1

You're absolutely right. People talk about chemistry between QB and WRs but thats hogwash compared to the chemistry on the O-line.

Dude, relax. He didn't say "Let's screw with our offensive line!". He presented a real scenario that might occur. Overall, most agree he is worth the #1 and #3 pic refund
