Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis declined to confirm the signing. Nicks, though, posted the Saints logo on his Twitter feed.
Nicks, 28, now replaces Brown as the oldest receiver on the Saints' roster by far. After releasing veteran Marques Colston this offseason, New Orleans doesn't have another receiver older than 24. Because of that lack of experience, Nicks should have a decent shot at cracking the roster along with projected starters Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead and second-round draft pick Michael Thomas, the story pointed out. However, Nicks has struggled to stick with a team bouncing around with the Colts, Titans and Giants since 2014.
