 A day after losing All-Pro guard Carl Nicks in free agency, the New Orleans Saints replaced him with with Pro Bowler Ben Grubbs. Grubbs, a former first round draft pick out of Auburn, has spent his first five years in the league with the Baltimore Ravens.

Terms of the 5 year contract include a $10 million signing bonus, and $16 million in guaranteed money. If he plays out the entire contract, he will earn a total of $36 million.

The 28 year-old will join an offensive line that already includes Pro Bowlers Jahri Evans and Jermon Bushrod. He will fill the starting left guard spot left vacant by Nicks.

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis released the following statement about Grubbs’ signing:

“”Our offensive line has been an integral part of our team’s success on offense over the last six seasons. We’re excited that Ben will be a New Orleans Saint and think he will prove to be an outstanding fit to our offensive line and our team both on and off the field. Ben comes to us from an offense in Baltimore that experienced a lot of success, both running the football and in pass protection. He was a big part of that and we believe that he can come right in and fit into our program without missing a beat.”
