Let's not forget Nicks may have a little left in his tank and is looking to return to football and NO would be the perfect landing spot.
You stick with Evans. 100%. Restructure and enjoy the benefits.

Carl Nicks??

You want to trade Evans - a pro bowl guard - for someone who limped away from football?

The only way New Orleans is a perfect landing spot for Carl Nicks is if Tulane Medical Center needs a new cadaver to study.

Re: Evans

wrong guard to trade. restructure and ride it out another year or two.

Grubbs is the one to look at. If the saints pull the trigger in the draft and get Scherff or Collins in round 1 then LG is a the spot. both are better suited here than at RG. plus trade wise Grubs is more appealing salary for the team in the trade but for the saints in regards to dead money. Grubbs dead money is 3 million in 2016 and Evans is 1 million.

then you draft a promising young upstart like Marpet to groom to take over for Evans down the road.

If the saints draft Scherff or Collins i am expecting a trade on draft day with Grubbs to the Bills. it is rumored that is the the one they want not Evans. besides having the worse run blocking OL in the NFL here is the reason why? LeSean McCoy

heck any guard in the first two days opens this option up. but in round 1 i would say it is as close to a lock as you can get

Can you explain why the player would ever agree to that? The team cannot unilaterally restructure an existing contract. Players restructure when the team sweetens the deal. Taking non guaranteed money and making it guaranteed for example. That relieves the immediate cap issue by spreading the hit over a longer term.

Once the money is guaranteed and you trade the player, the spread out cap money comes right back to the current league year.

So it doesn't make sense to sweeten a deal for a player the team doesn't plan to keep. And the player has no incentive to change anything if there isn't a benefit to them. In fact they are better off getting cut and being a street free agent because they can then dictate under what conditions they continue in the future.

So given all of this I ask again why would Evans agree to any of this?

Re: Evans

Keep Evans, trade Grubbs and draft an OG in the 3rd/4th round
