people ***** about simmons barely getting playing time last year but now ******** that we are going to thrust these two into the defense. Cant win.

#8 pick in the draft and a hugely coveted top-end talent vs a small school mid-round pick who was in no one's top 10. Big difference there.

Sure.

What is the mid career vet says I want no part of this?
I’ll admit I assume hicks was told Collins is starting. If so, you’ve already bitten off your nose to spite your face. If hicks was just told there would be competition or if he’s just pissy bc they drafted an ILB, well then I agree you’re backed into a bit of a corner. But you still aren’t forced to trade him. You hold his rights.

Only remember seeing the back of his jersey as a TE was running free downfield
I think all these comments are funny considering how much we improved against TEs last year.

Hicks didn’t have a great year last year. He had a pretty good season the year prior. I’m no Hicks fan, and I’m excited about Collins. But people that think hicks is trash are off base.

He hasn't been good even the year before

You do but, as we all know, if the draft pick or him starting is a major emotional blow to hicks, you do not hold him here if he wants to leave. That would do nothing but create negative vibes in the locker room.

Agree but I don't see anyone trading for him

Now please raise your hand if you think hicks would (a) holdout; or (b) damage his value by not playing hard when on the field.

If you raised your hand I think you’re nuts. This isn’t a guy who has made gargantuan amounts of money and he’s still got years of play ahead of him.
