"had to be more than Evans 56 mil contract"

That's quite selfish of nicks to be honest, it ain't a competition who can have the biggest deal, is he turning out to be all about the money

Be understanding of the player, greed is a part of the business. He must be greedy, because no one else will be for him. The team will undercut, and underpay when it can to keep who it can. He wants his deal to be more than Evans, it's standard practice and very understandable since that deal was done two years ago. He's probably headed for the tag though.

NFL Free Agents 2012: Carl Nicks Wants Enough Money To Buy "Mother ****ing Disneyland" - Turf Show Times

Tag him and develop his replacement for the year after. I love Nicks more than I do Evans... but with that said, interior lineman aren't that hard to replace. I just don't find it logical to invest such a gigantic sum of money into our interior line.

We could tag him, Draft his replacement with the 2nd or 3rd round pick and see if a team would pick him up, a bit of a gamble but could be a win, win, even if no one picked him up we drafted a replacement. I want to draft D with those picks but I want Brees on his feet more.

4th and 5th are the rounds where the Saints have success in drafting O-Linemen.

Offer him Evans' contract plus 1 dollar. We need to keep this guy.

You will see just how bad OC and LT are without him manning the left side.

He's more valuable to Drew Brees' protection than any LT in the league would be.

Don't be fooled by the traditional OG/OT values. You'll see a loy more games like the Rams and the 2010 Browns and Cardinals games.

With those two guards, our castle tower to throw rocks is stonger, higher than the other guys; we can easily "fart in their general direction" because of this truly special line...

Don't forget that we thought we could replace Willie Roaf - and look how that turned out for us...
