Re: Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints

we have as many RB's as WR and TE combined
as to who gets cut, my guess is Richardson or Barnes, temporarily anyway

I completely disagree. Here me out on this one ....
We have Colston, Cooks & outside of that, who else on the roster is as proven as Hicks? At one time this guy was a serious baller with the Giants & arguably their #1 WR. While he has had a few injuries, Hakeem is only 27. I still say that there is tread left on those Michelin's. I think he would be a great mentor to our man Willie Snead & Cooks. Nicks would certainly be an upgrade over Toon.

As for his declined production with the Colts/Titans .. have you seen the current roster for those two teams at the WR spot? Hilton, Moncrief, Green-Beckham, Wright, Douglas etc. Most of those guys are good to above average.

I think for some of the reasons stated above, this is why we are kicking the tires .

Re: Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints

I hope the Saints sign him. The dude was terrific his first couple of seasons. How does a youngster lose that ability? Injury? Immaturity?

I am at least glad that the Saints are checking him out.

Yep. Anyone who is ok with just having the four WR's we currently have is nuts. We're skating on very thin ice.

Re: Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints

Nicks does appear to be in a death spiral, there is younger, more promising talent we should be signing, at least to the practice squad...

Dezmin Lewis comes to mind...

Re: Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints

If he can help, sign him. He's probably cheap.
They cut what they thought were players that would not help.
If he can get open, catch the ball, and hang on to the ball, then he can help.
I will work backwards:
If he can't hang on to the ball, it doesn't matter if he can catch.
If he can't catch, it doesn't matter that he can get open.
If he can't get open, none of it matters.
If they are working him out then they recognize receiving deficiencies in our current group.
If they think he can fit a need I will trust their judgment.
If he doesn't work out, then next man up.
