    Saints trade DE Akiem Hicks to Patriots

    The Saints have traded defensive end Akiem Hicks to the Patriots in exchange for Michael Hoomanawanui, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Hicks, who was a third-round pick in 2012, will bolster the Patriots' defensive line depth, but with just two tackles in two games this season, he's off the fantasy radar.

    Saints DE Akiem Hicks claims he was benched Sunday

    Perhaps it's a matter of semantics, but Saints starting defensive end Akiem Hicks claims he was benched Sunday against Tampa Bay and Sean Peyton disagrees. "I got benched ... going into the third (quarter)," Hicks told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Hicks had good reason to believe so after playing only 28 snaps in the game. But Payton didn't see it that way. "It wasn't benched," Payton said. "I told him, hey, we're going to play some other guys here. And that's what we did." The coach added that the team has been rotating defensive linemen throughout the preseason and into the regular season.
