A former Pro-Bowl guard, Nicks contracted MRSA and had a disastrous 2013 season. If he can rebound to health and anything near his previous form it would be a huge boost to the Bucs O-line....

Carl Nicks: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Nicks (toe) said he is "stepping away" from football, FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Nicks didn't say he was retiring, but it sounds as if he's at least taking a leave of absence in light of his release from Tampa Bay on Friday. It in any case could be the end for Nicks' career, as the former star guard has been unable to recover from the complications of the MRSA infection that struck him in 2013.
Nick (toe) and the Buccaneers agreed to "mutually part ways" Friday, Tampa Bay Times writer Greg Auman reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There has been no mention of retirement with Nicks, so he might attempt to continue his career elsewhere pending his release. Nicks' recovery from a toe injury evidently hasn't gone as either side hoped, because Tampa Bay (as well as almost all other teams) could use a player of Nicks' talent when healthy. Nicks' exit leaves Tampa Bay with the underwhelming duo of Jamon Merideth and rookie Kadeem Edwards to compete for the remaining starting guard role.
Nicks (toe) will not participate in the Buccaneers' mandatory mini-camp and his absence could linger into the beginning of training camp, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Nicks was forced to miss most of the 2013 season with a severe MRSA infection that required surgery to clean out his left toe in October. Since then, the former Pro-Bowl guard has been building back his strength, but with a previous tear to the same toe back in 2012, Nicks always faced an uphill battle to practice early this offseason. At the moment, it appears Nicks could return sometime during training camp, when his presence will bolster a revamped Buccaneers offensive line.
Nicks (foot) did not participate in the Bucs minicamp, but will be ready for training camp, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Nicks, who missed most of the 2013 season with an MRSA infection, has been working out daily at the Bucs' facilities this offseason, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Nicks' infection was thought to be career-threatening, but it sounds like he should be able to return in 2014. He's played just nine games in his two seasons with the Bucs, after signing a five-year, $47.5 million deal in 2012. If Nicks can find his pre-2012 form, it could provide a huge boost to the Tampa Bay offensive line and, thus, running back Doug Martin.
Nicks will undergo surgery on his toe Tuesday to clean out a MRSA infection, Sports Talk Florida reports.
