The Saints do not have much to lose if things with Hakeem Nicks do not work out.

The veteran receiver's contract is worth $885,000 over once season. The pact contains no guarantees and he did not receive a signing bonus, according to a source.

The deal qualifies for the minimum salary benefit, meaning Nicks will count $600,000 against the salary cap.
