Marques Colston brings quiet demeanor, great production to New Orleans Saints
 
New Orleans Saints defenders, like their counterparts around the league, take pride in being tougher than the glamour boys on offense. Now and then, however, they make an exception. One such player is wide receiver Marques Colston. Saints safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper make the case for Colston's membership in the tough-guy club.

"Me and Harp joke all the time -- sometimes Colston will catch a ball, and I'll be right there, but I'm not going to hit him in practice, so I'll move out," Jenkins said. "And I'll be like, 'you know, in a game I would have separated you from the ball.' And Roman's like, 'No, that's Colston, he probably would have caught that.'

"I think we have a tremendous amount of respect for Colston," Jenkins added. "He doesn't draw a lot of attention to himself; he goes out there and he makes the hard catches. Goes across the middle, takes the hard hits, and doesn't complain. He makes plays for us, and he doesn't ever cause trouble. It's simple: If you get more players like Colston, you have a great team."

I agree

Colston represents himself the way I like my athletes to. He is mature enough to act like he's been there before. But most importantly he catches what is thrown at him. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the man.

Marques Colston IS a beast among receivers. Im glad WE have him and hope he gets re-signed. Ill even take Colston over the likes of Fitzgerald!
