Colston will not take a hometown discount from the Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I like Colston as much as anyone, but there's no way we can give him that much money in N.O. Brees and Nicks are going to get HUGE MONEY!...

And Colston deserves BIG money but the Saints can't afford him. Just hope and pray he's released way away from the Saints...

Now you know why Brees's deal isn't done yet. Loomis is trying to figure out how to keep the core together

This is the problem with us lucking out with some of our late round picks like we did. They performed well for us cheap and will now command top money, sucks it seems like some big money contracts are all coming at the same time.

has Jimmy G(tall target with great hands) made colston a little more expendable? probably... but I still think that we need to keep him...give him a shorter deal with a good chuink of bling...then he will be playing for his next contract and we wont get stuck if he starts to break down physically...

He is NOT worth 10 million a year (I would argue NO ONE IS but...)

10 million for 3 years, OK.

The other part of that article was telling - Moore took LESS to stay with the Saints. Smart man - there is more to football than making money & Lance knows that!!

we all love for him to be here for a long time but u have to be frank colston won't make 10 mil a year here or any where else, now this is my opinion; he just does'nt have that wow break away speed built in him that 10 mil a year team will want. he has some great hands, he runs some great routes, his personality is second to none. but just won't get it; sorry i hope he does but won't. he does deserve a big payday like the next guy.its qb money fellows where is this coming from. jmo.

GO NEW ORLEANS
