Determined to be the highest paid player at this position.

Quote :
New Orleans Saints guard Carl Nicks
has spent the offseason making it clear he's looking to cash in during
free agency. This is his right, and it's kind of hard to fault him for
it. He reiterated his goal again on Monday.
“I plan to be the highest-paid guard in the NFL," Hicks told WWL in New Orleans (via SportsRadioInterviews.com). "You can take that whatever kinda way, but that’s my goal, so ... more than Logan Mankins got I guess.”
Mankins
signed a six-year, $51 million contract with Patriots last August.
Hicks' desire effectively cuts his ties with the Saints, who are short
on cap space and already used their franchise tag on quarterback Drew Brees.

I can't fault him for his desire for a hefty pay raise. Not sure about
his goal of being the highest paid player though. Be interesting to see
if he gets it.

That's not surprising to me.. especially coming from a 4th-5th round pick (or whatever he was).

He's the best in the game at that position right now, he should be paid like it.

He should get paid yes. I do hate to see him leave though.

No one yet, as far as I know and I just did a quicky search when I read your post here. Cool

my bad.. I read your 8.5/yr line and thought that's what he signed for... but I think you were referring back to the Mankins deal.

Apologies on the confusion... cheers

I heard the Bucs are trying hard to get him. I Still dont like Freeman but that move will help him and it makes sense for the Bucs to make it.

The Vikings sure could use him...so, I'm sure they'll sit on their hands and watch a team that knows what the fuck they're doing sign him....

Signed with the Bucs. I'm sure everyone has already heard about it though.

Quote :
If you happen to be the neighbor of Tampa Bay
Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman, please forgive him if he's
frolicking gleefully around his front yard this morning. He's gotten
some pretty good news over the last 24 hours.
After learning Tuesday that he'll get to throw to Vincent Jackson, he learned Wednesday morning that the game's best guard will be protecting him. The Bucs signed Carl Nicks, formerly of the New Orleans Saints, to a five-year deal worth $47.5 million. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that $31 million of that is guaranteed.

Add cornerback Eric Wright
to the Bucs' haul, and it's safe to assume that the Bucs will make
everyone's list of "winners" in free agency. If they wanted to jump up
to the level of the Saints and Falcons in the NFC South, this is what
they had to do ‒ make strong, bold moves. It doesn't hurt that this
particular move weakens the Saints, either.
