The New Orleans Saints seem resigned to the fact that they are losing free agent guard Carl Nicks. Nicks was in Tampa Bay as of late Tuesday, and it’s considered likely that he’ll sign on to join the Buccaneers.
The Saints aren’t without a fallback option, though.
Per NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, the Saints are “making a push” to sign free agent Ben Grubbs. Nicks is the top offensive guard on the market. Grubbs is No. 2. Both players have been left guards throughout their careers, so the transition would likely be natural for Grubbs to go to the Saints.
Jahri Evans is New Orleans’ right guard.
