Much more reasonable than Nicks.

Grubbs just came off a 5 year/$8M contract, so he'll likely want a hefty pay raise, but nothing like Nicks is sure to get.

Around $6M/year is my guess.

Eagles not pursuing Carl Nicks

Sounds like the Eagles aren't willing to pay that much for Nicks either....

Eagles not pursuing Carl Nicks

Despite a report from NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora that the Eagles are aggressively pursuing free-agent offensive guard Carl Nicks, a rock-solid league source with direct knowledge of the Eagles’ offseason strategy denied it.

Tampa might be his first and final visit, and with the money they have to spend, it wouldn't really be a surprise.

Nicks isn't listed as a target by Iggles

Birds won't go on free-agent spending spree

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.
Reminds me of some of the Saints' off seasons of old...good old Benson, alternating between not wanting to pay our good players and overpaying for free agents and draft picks.

Well, if he goes to Tampa at least his QB is last in our division....depending upon how you look at Cam Newton.

Nicks is probably chomping at the bit to play our D twice a year...
