Saints Make Carl Nicks An Offer As Free Agency Looms

New Orleans Saints guard Carl Nicks is expected to hit the open market when free agency officially starts on Tuesday March 13 at 4 p.m. ET. Considering the Saints have used their franchise tag on quarterback Drew Brees, and Nicks is reportedly looking to be the highest paid guard in the NFL, that Nicks will likely be a free agent is no surprise. On late Monday evening however, the Saints made what sounds like a reasonable offer to the free agent guard.

Nicks tweeted Monday night, "Y'all know I keep it real on this. My agent told me the saints made me an offer and it is respectable..." He followed that up by tweeting, "Still need time to think and talk with my family."

With free agency starting soon, plenty of teams will make a last minute push to keep their impending free agents by rushing to try and beat the deadline.
