Possible replacements if Nicks leaves?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Draft if we have one. May have to see who else is out there not sure a draftee could step right in unless we get real lucky...

I wouldn't say that. With our cap situation and contracts for Colston and Brees still to come...not to mention trying to upgrade the defense, I'd say Tennant is the most likely to get the job. He'll at least be the front runner going into the pre-season.

Yeah, but I don't know if they'd rather put Tennant on center and DLP on LG, because those would be their respective natural positions - DLP played exclusively G last pre-season if my memory serves me right.

Why not? He's not Nicks, but he's been arguably our best backup for two seasons.

See my answer above.

But they could also try to move Strief to LG and start Brown at RT, but he wouldn't probably last longer than the first couple of weeks.

Won't be as hard to replace as everyone seems to believe.

I find Marcus McNeil to be interesting. He's been banged up and has underwhelmed at tackle the past few seasons. If we could get him cheap on a incentive laden deal, I think he would return to form moving inside to guard.

I'd be all for it, but I doubt we can afford it.

Love Hutchinson; Hutchinson, not Walther Jones, and not Shaun Alexander were the biggest reason why Seattle had so much success a few years ago...

And a big reason why Adrian Peterson blew up the way he did...

But does he still have gas in the tank?

Free agent OG Carl Nicks reiterated in an interview with WWL in New Orleans that he wants to be the NFL's highest paid guard.

"I plan to be the highest paid guard in the NFL," he said. "You can take that whatever kinda way but that’s my goal. So more than Logan Mankins got I guess." Mankins received a six-year, $51 million contract with $30 million guaranteed last August. "I don’t wanna sound cocky or anything but I busted my butt for four years, I made a couple Pro Bowls," Nicks added. "For my first three years I was the lowest paid guard of all the starting guard in the NFL."

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Can't argue with anything Nicks is saying. I hate to see him go, but I just don't see any way we can afford to bring him back.
