Maurice Hicks (born July 22, 1978 in Emporia, Virginia) is an NFL running back who is currently a Free Agent. He went to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Chicago Bears in the 2002 NFL Draft. He was then signed as a free agent by the 49ers in 2003. He is currently the second string running back behind Frank Gore.

You saying the Vikes signed him? If so he will be good for special teams. Maybe even a backup if Ap, CT get hurt. I dont see him being in the back field very much though. I sure hope the Vikes only got him to replace Melweldy More, and not Taylor!

He was signed for special teams. If Chester goes anywhere it would only be for a player that changes out teams outlook significantly.

I think he's here to take over for memo. AP is great but it's even better having CT there to back up and take over if AP goes down. Can't have too many quality backs on your team.

decent pick up...i like zigy's go get em style he's showing us....we've been looking for a decent return man/special teamer for awhile....i get nervous when they throw AP out there...i seen enough of that.

I agree, very nice pick up.....now if we could only find a defensive end.....I guess we'll have to draft another one, boy we've had bad luck drafting DE's in the past 10 years or so. Remember Underwood????

Im sure Allison will start moving more into WR, and I think they will still use Allison for punts, and Hicks for kickoffs.

Yeah, Hicks has never returned a punt in the NFL (not saying he can't), just not his repitoire.

We need a punt returner in the worst way. I am so sick of BWade waving for that Fair Catch...

Hicks is a decent player and looks to be in on 3rd down and times and on certain offensive packages...

If there wasnt such a risk i wonder how peterson would do returning a few punts?? I wouldnt wanna see it happen, especially if he got hurt. Williamson gone yet? if he had hands that were actually useful he woulda been a good returner with his speed. too bad he couldnt catch a ball that was handed to him.

yeah...remember the last 15 DE's we've drafted lol?

the best DE imo we got on the team right now is robison...i hope he gets more playing time this season....i think he can show us some things.

peterson would be a beast returning any kind of kicks because he's a freak of nature...remember when he wins the whole game for us and we somehow blow it like normal and we need a big return and peterson takes it all the down to field goal range? that was awesome....but you definatly don't want your franchise RB being a return man.

allison/hicks should do pretty good with the kicks.

i seen some good things to come out of allison as a wr last season...once our qb play gets better and our young wr's gain experience we should be doing pretty good....they say it takes a good 3 yrs for a wr to adjust to the nfl....i think it's only gonna take rice 2 yrs.

I hope they use Hicks as more of a special teamer and returner. I think Taylor does a great job on 3rd downs so I hope they don't take that away from him.

Yeah - hopefully AP has worked on his package and blitz pickup too.

I would like to see Allison returning punts...

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
