Return of Carl Nicks...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The thing is he had a bad case of turf toe even before the MRSA. Those usually turn out to be chronic. It's possible he never would've been as good anyway....

At this point he knows he will not start. He would be a huge value playing back up across the line. If he is cheap bring him in.

I would agree to take him back as backup in a heartbeat if he was willing.

It's difficult to leave an organization such as the Saints and continue to perform at the same level. Winning, Coaches and teammates do make a difference with individual performance. He made a mistake in leaving and I think he now knows that.

Well you better have a backup for Nicks too!

Re: Return of Carl Nicks...

staff infections are no laughing matter
staff is everywhere

I have had two of them and they take chunks out of your skin
an inch deep dime wide out of my hip, and my toe
first emergency room, second 2 days in the hospital

the most common place of picking one up is a hospital

you can be hospitalized, quarantined, no fun
except you don't have to share a room

post infection, you are more susceptible to them, but also can notice, medicate and stop immediately

It's a shame Nicks' free agent bust occurred
could he sit out a year, recover, stay in shape and come back for us?
sure would be a storybook ending

glad to see him walk away if that's indeed where things are

another player who thrives under Payton and can't reclaim that elsewhere

Re: Return of Carl Nicks...

I love me some Carl Nicks -- but I doubt he is ever coming back here, after the temper tantrum he threw at the coaches during the Rams game, during his last year here. Injury and age aside, you don't come back from that. Lurking under the exterior of Nicks were some attitude problems and baggage, that I do not think the Saints were particularly interested in, as part of the decision of letting him go.

I am just so sorry that his career ended the way it did. He was so good in his prime, but I can see why he would decide to just hang it all up. That MRSA stuff is no joke, that's for sure.

I believe Brees' and Colston's contracts had more to do with "letting Nicks go" (which didn't happen... the Saints made him a good offer) than any attitude problem or temper tantrum that Nicks had.
