The Sporting News has random notes from each of the 32 teams training camp. Here is what they had on the Saints.
Carl Nicks is lining up at both left guard and left tackle but has stood out at tackle. He has held his own against pass rushers Bobby McCray and Will Smith. Nicks could challenge Jamar Nesbit for the starting left guard job, but chances are he'll enter this season as a backup.
I am still laughing my butt off from asaint's story about his Cox Cable experience in Stujo4's FanPost. Genius...pure genius.
