The NFL offseason is upon us, which means that players and teams are starting to look at what 2014 will hold for them. Some players are getting ready to make a run at a Super Bowl, while others are starting to look for new teams to play for.
One player who could be out of a job is former Pro Bowler Carl Nicks, who could end up being a cap casualty with the Buccaneers. Jason LaCanfora from CBS Sports notes that the Buccaneers could save some serious cash but sending Nicks packing this offseason.
Given his issues with MRSA last season, and what could be a reshaped OL, might the Bucs save $7M in real money and cap space, by letting him go? Wouldn’t be a shocker.
It’s not a lock that the Bucs will be revamping their offensive line, but there’s a good chance that if someone has to be cut that it’s going to be Nicks. He’s been a bust for Tampa Bay since singing a huge contract in 2012, and although some of that can be attributed to the MRSA infected Buccaneers locker room, the team may move on with a younger line.
