Saints resigning Nicks and Colston? OMG

88 posts in this topic

Nicks is doing the same thing that Brees did earlier. He isn't going to burn any bridges or say anything negative. But on Monday he said that he was going to be the best paid guard in the game. He said he was an all pro guard who was very cheap compared to other guys. He plans to make up for it on this contract. That is not compatible with taking a home team discount. When the big money offers come in he will bring it back for the Saints to match. If they don't or won't he will do what is best for his family and leave.

THe problem for new Orleans is that they are making offers to other guys with the assumption that Brees is going to take the 15 million or at least sign for the 18 they offered. If he doesn't they have no way they can pay these other guys what they want.

Colston is another guy who is going for his big payday. I really doubt as cheap as he has been paid, that he will settle for much less than what he is worth. The only thing in NO favor is that there are so many free agents out there and only 120 million in cap space. The fact that Washington and Dallas can't spend as much will be an issue going forward.

As for the 30% discount to sign your own players- that is the NBA not the NFL. I saw nothing in these rules that allows a 30% discount to sign your own. And as it clearly says you have to be under the cap at all times. If you aren't, you can't sign any other guys until you are.

I wonder if all Saint fans are this uninformed.

What's that? You have a pit in your stomach because the greatest offense in the history of the NFL is going to return everyone? LMAO

The Saints have secured the services of receiver Marques Colston with a five-year, devil-in-the-details $40 million contract. So now lock up Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks before 4:00 p.m. ET?

“I don’t think so,” a source with knowledge of the situation told PFT.

They may yet sign him, but ima laugh my ass off at you if they don't.

Did he sign the deal? Does the offer make him the highest paid guard in the NFL? He said he would be that too. How are your math skills? Colston, Brees, Nicks, and Evans. How much cap do you have left?

You see, your boasting is really very stupid.

this is the difference between a "respectable" offer and "we are the tampa bay buccaneers and we need to make a big splash in free agency because we couldn't sell out a game if we handed out free concessions and sasha grey was giving sloppy head at the gate to every ticket holder so here is a truckload of cash mr. nicks hope you don't mind us delivering it to your doorstep in a literal dump truck"
