| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Nicks Follows Bentley - blueslover on 8/6/14 at 8:17 am|
Has there ever been two such good players (both O-line) that left one team for such big money and then produced so little as a result of staph infection?
The Bucs agreed to a $3-million injury settlement with OG Carl Nicks, according to salary cap information filed with the league.

He had a tremendous day Saturday and followed it up with another solid day today. More than anything else, T...

GM Mickey Loomis trades up and goes after Oregon State speedy wideout Brandin Cooks. Sean Payton and Drew Brees implement so many moving parts to their offensive schemes, Cooks gives them a wideout that can stretch defenses and jet down the field. Cooks' 4.3 speed gives the QB so much room to fit th...
