As expected, Carl Nicks is receiving a lot of attention now that the free-agent market has opened.
Two teams — the Buccaneers and Eagles — are pushing to get Nicks to make a visit first, hoping he doesn’t leave without a deal. I expect Nicks to land a deal among the league’s highest-paid guards, around $8 million to $9 million per season.
Nicks, a two-time Pro Bowl pick who helped the Saints win Super Bowl XLIV, has started 61 of 64 games since entering the league four seasons ago.
