Bears' Akiem Hicks: Agrees to two-year deal with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akiem Hicks has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears , Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Hicks started 30 games between 2013 and 2014, but he was then traded to the Patriots after Week 3 last season. He had 21 tackles and three sacks in 13 games for New England, bringing his career totals to 141 takedowns and 9.5 sacks in 61 appearances. Though unlikely to warrant IDP consideration, Hicks could compete for a starting job in Chicago.

Saints trade DE Akiem Hicks to Patriots

The New Orleans Saints have traded defensive end Akiem Hicks to the New England Patriots in exchange for Michael Hoomanawanui , according to the New Orleans Privateers 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
by Marty Gitlin |

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.
