Saints trade Akiem Hicks for Patriots Michael Hoomanawanui

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't like this trade. Hicks although inconsistent - Had shown above average ability. Our new TE has accomplished what?...

Like they did when we traded Jonathan Sullivan to them?

Maybe he just isn't all that good. Tarzan/Jane?

Hicks has never shown above average ability. He makes like one splash play a season and makes everyone believe he's on the verge of breaking out only to go MIA again.

This may not be the final piece of this puzzle.

Perhaps Bunkley is ready to return?

This guy can not be any worse than the ones we have. Hicks was a FA next year anyway. Not like we were going to resign him.

He was a JAG (just a guy), and we addressed a weakness that may help us this year.

There was a reason his ass was benched Sunday. My guess is that we have guys who are better players than Hicks.

I hope we trade John Jenkins too and then resign Bunkley.

This is right. A decision was going to have to be made on Hicks. This shifts the onus to the Patriots. Who knows, we may decide to pick him up as a free agent next year at a fraction of what he would have demanded in a new contract.
