“I don’t wanna sound cocky or anything, but I busted my butt for four years, I made a couple Pro Bowls," he said. "For my first three years, I was the lowest paid guard of all the starting guards in the NFL. And I never complained, I never held out, I came in early to sign my tender when no one else was doing that.

"I’ve been dedicated to the team and I’ve proven my stats speak for itself," he said. "I just feel like I should get paid what I deserve.”
- Nicks



He's good enough at his position to be the highest paid. At least he's not all "I'm a team guy" for the sake of his image. I have to give him some points for saying it like it is.

Nothing wrong with what he said. He's right! He's proven on the field that he is one of the best guards in the league & deserves to be paid as such.

Our system has made stars out of these dudes now where is the loyalty. Same as Colston, he wont nearly be as good somewhere else. As for Nicks, He's be the highest paid guard playing for a 2-14 team next year too.

My point is he's telling you straight up, "Look, I've paid my dues. I've been loyal. Now it's about the money."

I can't hate on him for that. It's not like we just finished paying him 60 million over 5 years...cough...cough... :brood:

He is unquestionably better than Mankins, so I see nothing wrong with him demanding higher pay, because there are teams out there who'll pay him that money.

I wish we could've used the tag on him. :-(

He wouldn't have signed it.

You think that he would've sat out the whole season instead?

Hmmm. hometown discount?


"I know I've said I want to be paid a certan amount, but at the end of the day I said I want to be back with the Saints, and I'm waiting on any kind of offer," Nicks said. "My goal is to get more than ($8.5 million per year). I feel like I deserve that. But I never told them, 'If you guys are in the ball park, I wouldn't consider it.' I play with Drew Brees. We always have a chance to win. That counts for a lot."
