Ahead of Tuesday's start of NFL free agency, the Saints and offensive lineman Jahari Evans agreed to terms on a restructured contract. Meanwhile, however, fellow lineman Carl Nicks told me today that he is disappointed that it appears the Saints are "moving in another direction."
The Saints diverted Evans' base salary into a signing bonus to clear about $2 million in cap space. The Saints also agreed to terms with defensive end Turk McBride, though terms of that deal were not disclosed.
Nicks spoke with me this afternoon on Sports Talk, and it sounds like the all-pro gaurd is on his way out of New Orleans.
