Receiver Hakeem Nicks seeks resurgence with Saints

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Veteran NFL receiver Hakeem Nicks decided this offseason that persistently lobbying New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton for a job gave him the best chance at salvaging his career.

The 28-year-old Nicks, who participated in his first practice of Saints training camp on Friday, is coming off several seasons in which his production dipped far below the standard he set early in his career with the New York Giants. But Nicks sounds confident that the prolific offense designed by Payton, and executed by quarterback Drew Brees, provides the perfect platform for his resurgence.

"If you look at the offenses I was in when I had most of my production throughout my career, I felt like this offense fit my skill set the best," Nicks said. "And who else to do it with than coach Sean Payton. He's a brainiac when it comes to offenses, and I would love to play for him."
