All-Pro Guard Carl Nicks will stay in the NFC South after agreeing to a 5 year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The deal is worth $47.5 million with $31 million guaranteed.

While the Saints made Nicks a "fair offer" on the eve of free agency, it was widely believed that he would be too expensive to keep around.

The two-time pro bowler out of Nebraska is now the highest paid Guard in NFL history.
