Offensive line help is likely target
Can the Saints sign all three?
In 2010, fellow teammate and interior guard Jahri Evans signed a seven-year, $56.7 million contract, the highest for an interior lineman in league history.
Nicks, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, is seeking a contract with an average of $8 million per season.
"It's been what, two years?" Nicks told the Times-Picayune. "You've got to add inflation. I'm not a businessman, but I know what inflation means."
Is Nicks worth signing to a big-money deal? I'm sure it's a question being asked at Valley Ranch.
In 2007, the Cowboys signed Leonard Davis to a seven-year, $49.6 million contract with $18.7 million guaranteed. It's probably the highest contract ever, in total money, given to an interior lineman in franchise history.
Davis was released prior to the start of the 2011 season after some productive seasons, which included three Pro Bowl appearances.
The Cowboys have several young interior linemen in Bill Nagy, Kevin Kowalski and David Arkin. Veteran Kyle Kosier remains at the right guard spot, but Montrae Holland and Derrick Dockery become free agents this spring.
Owner Jerry Jones said the team needed to do a better job of evaluating the meat of the offensive line.
Do you attempt to sign Nicks, draft a guard or develop the young talent already on the roster?
On March 13, the start of free agency, we get to find out just what the plan is.
