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.

Hicks is a MeMo replacement...

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 just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes? 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?
    • HossFisher
      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.

      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
