Peyton Manning's, Matt Flynn's futures at forefront of NFL offseason issues - Don Banks - SI.com

10. Who's the most underrated free agent available this year?

Saints receiver Marques Colston has been the model of steady production and consistency since entering the league as a lowly seventh-round pick in 2006. In five of his six NFL seasons, he has caught 70 passes or more, for at least 1,000 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. In 86 career games, he has 449 receptions, for 6,240 yards, with 48 touchdowns and a solid 13.9-yard average catch.

Colston isn't just a product of New Orleans' high-powered passing attack, and while he has gotten the benefit of playing his entire career with Brees, he'll prosper almost anywhere he lands if the Saints can't afford to re-sign him. New Orleans also has Brees, guard Carl Nicks and wideout Robert Meachem eligible for free agency. Colston's blend of height, hands and the ability to find the crease in the defense make him one of the best receiving options to come available in free agency in a long time.

So underrated among the elite receivers it's ridiculous... but I honestly believe he likes it that way.

I like it that way, too. It gives us a better chance at keeping him.

i doubt that NFL decision makers are as ignorant as the media "experts". There's going to be a lot money being dangled in his face.

True...it will take a great deal of money to sign him. The only thing I am hanging my hat on is the fact that he knows Brees receives much credit for his success as well. Does anyone truly think he will be as successful in Jax or Cleveland(only a couple of examples)???
