It’s not a good week for veteran receivers trying for one more chance in the NFC South.
The same day Lance Moore retired from the Falcons, Hakeem Nicks was cut by the Saints.
According to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, coach Sean Payton announced the move after practice.
Nicks’ comeback bid didn’t even make two weeks, as the Saints apparently didn’t see enough from him to continue.
The former Giants wideout caught seven passes last year in his second stint in New York, after a less-than-stellar trip to Indianapolis. He hasn’t topped 1,000 yards since 2011, and may not get many more chances.
