It will be great having him back on the field this year. Sweet. That's some good news. Now let's go get Carl Nicks and keep Drew upright.

Best news I've heard all offseason! Slowly but surely life is getting back to normal, what a relief.

Cautiously optimistic about nicks at this point. Still think he's going to test the waters of free agency at the very least, but getting colston back in the fold softens the potential blow, in my mind anyway

That's a great feeling isn't it?
Wife bought me a Lance Moore last year before he signed.
What a relief.
Things are looking up.
Have Benson sign Loomis to a new 6 year deal.

The Saints have secured the services of receiver Marques Colston with a five-year, devil-in-the-details $40 million contract. So now lock up Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks before 4:00 p.m. ET?

“I don’t think so,” a source with knowledge of the situation told PFT.

On Monday, Nicks received what he described on Twitter as a “respectable” offer from the Saints, via Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

The Saints continue to be concerned about investing too much money in the guard position, given the contract given last year to Jahri Evans. And Nicks continues to want to become the highest-paid guard in the game.
With Colston done, Nicks still may be gone | ProFootballTalk

If Nicks ends up staying with the Saints, don’t expect it to happen until after he hits the market. Of course, once Nicks hits the open market, the chances of staying could be even smaller.

We’re hearing that the Buccaneers and Bears could be chasing Nicks, if/when he hits the market.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Payton + Brees makes this whole group head and shoulders above the rest.
There may be better individual performers, but I don't see a better combination nowhere
else in the league.
