New Saints WR Hakeem Nicks admitted that he was texting Sean Payton every week since his spring visit. Nicks said he's had to fight injuries in his career, including last year with Titans. But he said that just adds to the chip in his shoulder. Also said he's taken time to try and "learn the business," study offenses and try to figure out why he had most of his success early in his career with Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.
