New Orleans Saints: Carl Nicks, Zach Streif, Jimmy Wilkerson, Clint Ingram, Faulk
Written by 

New Orleans SaintsSaints guard Carl Nicks has accepted his one-year tender offer as a restricted free agent. "I'm back," Nick told WWL.com. "I wanted to prove my worth, and maybe next year we can talk long term."

Former Saints head coach Jim Mora was a visitor at the Saints' practice on Monday. Mora coached the Saints from 1986-1996 before he quit...Offensive tackle Zach Strief has agreed to terms with the Saints, leaving 15 players still unsigned. The players will have Wednesday and Sunday off....

 According to Scout.com, former Saint, Jimmy Wilkerson has signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.

Also, SportsXchange NFL reports that LB Clint Ingram re-signed with the Saints. Ingram spent last season with the Saints but was on injured reserve because of a knee injury.

SOME hither, others yon: Marshall Faulk of New Orleans will be inducted into the Pro Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio this weekend. Faulk was an All-Pro running back and NFL MVP. Here are quotes on Faulk:

"I think of him as a man before a player, and what tremendous character and integrity he brought to the game. You know when you were facing him that he was going to give you 110 per cent of what he had. He never cheated the game, you knew it was a fight every time out against him. Marshall wasn't the biggest or the fastest, but Faulk was Faulk. He ran with such grace and power. I consider it a privileged to have played against him." -- Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens linebacker.

"He was a guy who frustrated not only the other term's defense, but their offense. Just knowing he is on the other sideline, there was more pressure for us to score. Every time we played him, I knew 30 points wasn't going to win it." -- Brett Favre, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and Minnesota Vikings quarterback.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
