Everyone preaches the "we need to protect Brees better" points, yet we let the guy that was arguably the best young Guard in the league walk.

We offered Nicks a contract making him the highest paid OG in NFL history. He left for a few dollars more.

We didn't just let him walk.

Im not up on US tax laws but didn't Nicks pay less overall tax moving to Florida. I seem to remember reading that they have no state taxes there

Correct sir. Florida, Texas, Nevada and a couple more that I can't remember off the top of my head.

You are correct about Texas, that and the wife's job are the only two reasons why I won't relocate
