Tampa, Fla. • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are moving on without injured offensive lineman Carl Nicks, who appeared in just nine games over two seasons after signing a five-year, $47.5 million contract in free agency.

In a brief statement released on the opening day of training camp, the Bucs and the two-time Pro Bowl guard "mutually agreed" to sever ties Friday.

Nicks, 29 didn’t miss a game in four seasons with New Orleans, however a left toe injury two years ago and the recurrence of a MRSA infection in 2013 kept him off the field for most of his stay with the Bucs.

Nicks said in a statement that stepping away from football was "by no means an easy decision," but he thinks it’s best for him, his family and the Bucs.
