When the New Orleans Saints signed receiver Marques Colston yesterday to a 5-year contract, things were looking up. But if you've been paying attention to the salary cap situation, you probably knew what was coming next.

Today All-Pro guard Carl Nicks signed a 5-year, $47.5 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The team also lost another free agent in WR Robert Meachem. He inked a 4-year deal with the San Diego Chargers.

All is not bad today. It seems the Saints may have found a replacement at guard in former Baltimore Raven Ben Grubbs. That news according to SaintsReport.com Insider Mike Detillier.

Between this and Bounty Gate, the offseason has been hard on the nerves of all of us Who Dats!
