Just like Payton created that 2pt conversion play for Moore,i bet there are specific ones for Colston,so hes going to get paid,or end up just like Shokey if he asks for ALOT more money. More money=good,just dont be greedy , put in balance the chance to win and big bucks in Minnesota or whatever .

I found this list of the Saints Salaries. not sure how accurate it is??

Colston makes 3mil.. I think there are a whole bunch of other players that deserve more than Colston. JimmY Graham for one. Garrett Hartley makes too much IMHO..

Just a reminder, the salary cap is going to keep going higher and higher each of the next few seasons so I'm sure Loomis will find some way to keep around the core of this team even after paying Drew and Nicks

I'm just questioning the timing of this article, this reeks of his agent not Colston

Or maybe we can work out a sign and trade, to an AFC team.

He may not get the money he thinks since he's had numerous knee surgeries and isn't getting any younger.

I'm sure we'll give him a fair offer.

Saints WR Colston scheduled to become free agent in 2012

One is wide receiver Marques Colston, who is scheduled to become a free agent in March. A league source tells ProFootballTalk.com that when Colston hits the open market, he won't be giving the Saints a hometown discount.

Colston, 28, signed a three-year extension of his rookie contract with the Saints in 2009. A seventh-round pick in 2006 out of Hofstra, Colston quickly became Brees' favorite target and topped the 1,000-yard mark in four of his five seasons. With 66 receptions for 917 yards, he's on pace to do the same this season.

1st - Brees
2nd - Nicks

Then if we can afford Colston, sign him.

I'm not sure that paying Brees is going to leave us as a penniless franchise! It's always the way with a winning team. Everyone thinks that their contribution was big enough to warrant a massive payday and if that means they can get their payday elsewhere, even for a truly awful franchise, then they will likely take it.

I hate to put the kaibosh on Colston being at New Orleans but I am telling you right now, he is finished unless he accepts a far more structured contract. However there are a number of teams who need a WR option just like Colston and would be happy to pay the sort of money he is after. I can see him landing in Minnesota or somewhere like that. God forbid he goes to Carolina or I am going to cry. A lot!

The truth is as well, that whilst you have someone like Drew Brees, you can put any decent route runner with half decent hands out on the field and Brees will turn them into a star. Nothing against Colston, he's quality, but a rookie will serve us equally well and asking someone like Meachem or Henderson to step up and finally seeing what Arrington or Roby may have to offer is not out of the question.
