Good for him... glad he got what he wanted.

I hope we put him on his ass when we play him(the legit way).

Good for him. It would have been nice to keep him, but he can be replaced. The Saints go marching on.

Just blows my mind when offensive lineman act like prima donna RBs/WRs ... & QBs, for that matter.

So that's an average of $9.5M/year - there's no way the Saints could've afforded to pay him that nor should they have.

I'm glad for him, and appreciate all that he did for the Saints. I fully understand why he signed with the Bucks, and I don't have any hard feelings about it.

But, with all that said, he is now a Buccaneer and solely because of that I can't root for the guy to have any success in the future - much like what happened with Faine.

we've been lucky over the last few years not to lose big time players to free agency. this 1 really hurts. he was as solid as we ever loss one except for willie roaf and he was traded i think by joe horn.

Saints replaced Faine and Goodwin, I got faith that Loomis will find a way to replace Nicks

I never blame football players leaving for the money. TB was way under the cap and there was no way we could of given him that kind of money with our cap situation. I wish him the best except for the 2 times he plays us each year. Time to move on and sign Grubbs and use the extra money on defense.
