Probably part of, certainly. That and the infection kept him out so long that he just couldn't bring himself back

Losing Nicks hurt the Saints. Not seeing the field hurt the Bucs. Now, he's done. Hopefully, he saved some cash and can lead a healthy life.

Re: Return of Carl Nicks...

once he started showing up on injury reports i then understood why we let him go.

but if he can prove he is healthy and will to be fair about his pay then you have look at it. would he sign as a back up cheap?

maybe work out as a center?

med amd money governs all

Jermon Bushrod didn't have a terrific season with the Bears last year either, now de la Puente followed him there...

Yep, and it should be. Everyone of these guys risks their livelihood each time they step on the field, not to mention their well being

Oh hes not beyond question but when its fans on a message board doing the questioning, I take that with a grain of salt. Loomis isn't perfect and no one, NO ONE, ever gets it 100 percent right with picks and trades. If we (the fans) could do half the job that Loomis and the Saint's front office do, we wouldn't be here, we'd have jobs in the NFL.

Working in a hospital I've seen firsthand how awful MRSA can be. I just hope Carl is able to get healthy. What an unfortunate event, terrible stuff.
