5 More Years Of Colston!!!!!!!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I saw the news earlier and was really happy. I truthfully thought we would lose him, but that was dealing with the prospect of signing Nicks. Colston is smart to have stayed, I am sure he realizes that Drew helps ...

I, too have long wished for a tall, speedy, reliable deep threat to line up opposite colston. I know our offense isn't exactly hurting for more playmakers, but if we're talking wishlists that'd be near the top of mine. Along with a linebacker corps that actually shows up for the games :/

People that are wrapped up in this bounty thing, and that are salivating over these suspensions, need to remember, if there are any, they will all be on the defensive side of the ball, not the offensive.... And we are not really known for defense anyway right? They don't know us at all.....

Not bad for a 7th rounder!

A bit more than the $7M/year Colston was supposedly looking for, but, regardless, it's great that they were able to re-sign him.

I doubt he would've gotten much more from the open market, and he definitely would've seen his numbers drop with another team.

One down, many more to go.

Great news!! I was not looking forward to seeing him catch for another team at all. Glad he is staying put.

Didn't see him leaving at all. Who else would have been our #1? Shows you the type of person he is... he could have been to a larger market to play and get more recognition, but he decided to stay here and just continue to do what he does. Perform.

What a true professional Colston is, didn't say anything through the media, just went about his business quietly and it paid off.
