Free Agent Carl Nicks Visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers, According To Report

Back in New Orleans, the Saints are hosting free agent guard Ben Grubbs for a visit. That's the team that free agent guard Carl Nicks just left and it appears that Nicks has one visit set up at this point. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Nicks is scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs have a ton of cap space and they've already been connected to one high-priced player in wide receiver Vincent Jackson. Nicks may not be as expensive as Jackson, but he's still going to cost a lot. He's on record as saying he wants to become the highest-paid guard in the NFL, which would put his salary demands up around $8 million per year.

Nicks was the Saints' fifth-round pick in the 2008 NFL draft. He has started all but three games in his four-year NFL career.
