I’m back,” Nicks said, per  “I wanted to prove my worth, and maybe next year we can talk long term.”

    He is the best guard in the NFL, why does he need to be tendered?

    If only Carl had done more to help Bird defeat Magic when they were together at Indiana State…

    Benson is being cheap… pay the man what he’s worth.

    As much as I like the Packers chances of being a SB contender again this season, one of the ? on the team is the LG position.

    Im fine with the fact that Ted Thompson doesn’t sign many FAs from other teams but I think with this team this year, he should have tried to sign a big name LG like Justin Blalock or Carl Nicks.

    Nicks would cost a 1st rounder but I would like to think hes worth a late first round pick, especially pick 32 if thats what they end up with. Not saying they will but im just making a point.

    I love the way Nicks plays, hes a beast and if the rookie Danny Watkins is a first round pick then Nicks definitely is IMO.
