Time will tell what kind of player Hicks is. And if he goes on to NE and plays well then it's yet another failure by our own organization.

Good point, I think we have an idea how this one plays out.
One thing is faith is very low for our D staff. And some players
flourish on other teams, well except Bushrod and a few others.

For his size and athletic ability, the guy under performed. Plus, being benched last Sunday, clearly the guy has an attitude problem. All of this in a contract year where guys normally go all out. Also, he's not a 4-3 DE.

Re: Saints trade Akiem Hicks for Patriots Michael Hoomanawanui

Makes no sense to me I would have much rather gotten a draft pick. He will be gone next year this was just another poor decision from the front office giving into what SP's and his offense wants. You got the worst defense going but hey let's make it worse I fully understand. These guys are insane

The crazy thing is, Hoo might be the best blocking tight end the Saints have had in my time watching the Saints (since the Jim Mora era). I don't think I'm forgetting anyone ...

The real winner in this trade is hicks.
The guy gets to go to a superbowl winner that is known for getting the best out of its players. I predict pro bowl for hicks next year.

Another dumb move by our front office/payton. We should be getting rid of our coaches that cant coach potential if it were sitting next to them. All this for yet another blocking TE... yes folks he is a blocker.

From a friend who is pats fan: Humanavamanui is a blocking TE, good hands but he is slow and creates no separation.
