Carl Nicks demoted for the day

Carl Nicks has been a fine OG for the Saints the past two years, but apparently that doesn’t mean he has the right to take first-team snaps in practice. As the New Orleans Times-Picayune points out, the Saints coaching staff was sending a message today when it demoted Nicks to the second team.

It didn’t sit well with Nicks.

"It has to be one of two reasons, (either) they feel I'm not good enough any more or they feel the guy behind me is better," Nicks said after practice. "You've got to ask coach about that.

"It doesn't light my fire ... I'm confident in my abilities. If they feel I'm not capable of running with the 1s, I've got to respect that."

Terrence Metcalf replaced Nicks on the first team, but coach Sean Payton also said not to read anything into the move.
