Report: Saints are expected to release wide out Marques Colston
The New Orleans Saints will likely release receiver Marques Colston in the coming days, according to a league source. Colston, who has had a remarkable 10-year career after being drafted in the seventh round out of Hofstra in 2006, is New Orleans’ all-time leading receiver and touchdown scorer. But he became the Saints’ third receiver last year and is due to make $3.2 million in salary and bonuses.
He helped the Saints achieve victory in Super Bowl XLIV with 7 receptions for 83 yards, and is the Saints’ all-time franchise leader in receiving yards, yards from scrimmage, receiving touchdowns, total touchdowns, and total receptions.
