Re: 2022 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Hicks and Onyemata are essentially the same player, position...

We really need a two-gap, two blocker NT who can push the pocket into the passer...

The active rotation of practice squad, no names has worked effectively surprisingly...

Not to mention Hicks hates the team, hates Payton and went on record saying he would injure Brees if he got the chance.

I missed that one. Can you provide a link? Not that I don't believe you, but this is all I've found so far searching:

Bears DL Akiem Hicks tight-lipped about facing ex-teammate Drew Brees


“I don’t really talk about Drew Brees,” Hicks said. “Nothing to say about him.”

Sunday marks the first time Hicks will return to the Superdome since the Saints traded him to New England in Week 4 of the 2015 season.

This weekend certainly is important to Hicks, but he isn’t saying much -- at least, publicly -- about playing against his ex-team.

“No, no [there’s no extra juice taking on the Saints],” Hicks said. “Just want to play some good football.”

Then there is this from October of 2020:

Akiem Hicks finally burying the hatchet with the Saints

“Do I appreciate how I was cast aside?” Hicks told Nathan Smith for ChicagoBears.com. “I wasn’t good enough to play for that team? No, I don’t appreciate those things. You never forget, but you can’t carry hate in your heart, you know what I’m saying? I would also say that, man, you just appreciate those moments. I wouldn’t say it loses its luster.”

I am hereby letting everyone know that I have submitted the terms "prebreesian" and "postbreesian" for copyright consideration.

Things get deleted from the internet all the time. Any idiot knows that. Well, any idiot but you. Just because you can't find it doesn't mean he didn't say it. He was pissed and said a LOT of nasty things. He even got support from Jimmy Graham at the time, but then Jimmy, who is a coward like you, deleted his statement.

Jimmy said, just so we're clear, "feel blessed u got out of there. Time to go shine big dog. All the best. Good luck.”

He promptly deleted the tweet. Cowards defending cowards. You fit right in.

And you put this in the "Roster Outlook" thread because why?

Maybe you just need to troll. LOL

Unfortunately I can't find it either and I'm paraphrasing a little here, but I remember reading an article or a twitter post where Hicks said something along the lines of "better get 9 some protection or I'll make sure its QB2"

Hicks does not like Brees one bit apparently.
