Players like running back Pierre Thomas, wide receiver Lance Moore, and safety Roman Harper were patient and were compensated for it with nice contracts. Surely Nicks will see the same type of gratitude in that area.
If the Saints can’t afford to pay everyone, then their successor will likely come in the draft. I hate to say it, but Colston would likely be the casualty of a bidding war since offensive guard’s like Nicks are hard to find.
With free agency starting in March, the decisions of what to do for these three will be some that none of us would want to try to haggle with along with preparing for the upcoming draft.
Saints general manager Mickey Loomis stated that the Saints wouldn’t trade up like last year into the first round. However, he also stated that anything is possible.
Translation is, if there is a player the Saints absolutely feel they need to have, then it’ll happen. Until that time, fans will simply have to be content with wearing their “GM” hats for a little while longer.
