Bucs and Eagles pushing "hard" for Carl Nicks

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wonder if he'd give us an opportunity to counter...not that we could afford to......

It's a no loose situation IMO,if he stays great.He is the best Guard around but if he wants to follow the money then good luck to him,it just gives us more cap space to spend on the defence.

Exactly, and I'm not saying that I want to lose Nicks, but down the road it could be a blessing in disguise if we can make some adjustments to the defense with the cap-room and find a suitable replacement.

Still though, Nicks has done so well, it'll be difficult to mimic his productivity.

Don't know how reliable this twitter account is but if it's true it looks like Nicks is unfortunately very close to being a Buc.
Sounds like a small time twitter guy trying to "scoop" the big sports guys by guessing. I wouldn't trust it.

We would basically be losing a Pro Bowl starter and getting a Pro Bowl alternate, so it wouldn't be too bad. With Jahri next to him and Drew behind him, maybe he develops into a starter himself, who knows.

If it comes down to a bidding war we have no chance against TB. Nicks said on twitter that the Saints made him a respectable offer, that's all we can do. TB has to spend their money soon so they will probably overpay for Nicks and Vincent Jackson. If we don't sign Nicks there are cheaper alternatives out there and we can use the rest of the money to improve the defense.
