Tampa Bay reached agreement with former Saints guard Carl Nicks on a five-year, $47.5 million deal including $31 million guaranteed.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2012
The Bucs made their two big splashes, signing Carl Nicks to a five-year, $47.5 million deal with $31 million guaranteed. They're probably out of the market for Curtis Lofton now. The Buccaneers have undeniably improved, but that's a massive amount of money to tie up in a guard any way you slice it. They better hope he stays healthy.
