New Orleans, La (NBC33) — The New Orleans Saints are now in search of replacing one of their top offensive linemen Carl Nicks.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed the all-pro guard to a five-year contract worth $47.5 million today.
Nicks was one of the key blockers for Drew Brees on the Saints' record-setting offense.
He's considered one of the best pass blockers in the NFL and made the Pro Bowl the last two seasons.
