Colston restructures his contract
 
1 Attachment(s)
The Saints are in the process of trying to create salary cap space, and a new deal for wide receiver Marques Colston will give them some.

The Saints and Colston have completed a restructured deal, Jason La Canfora ‏of CBS reports.

There’s no word on the details of the deal. Colston signed a five-year, $36.3 million contract in March, and he may have simply agreed to reduce his $4.5 million base salary to the league minimum while taking the rest as a signing bonus that will be prorated over the final four years of his deal.

Up next for the Saints is seeing whether they can work out deals with Will Smith and Jonathan Vilma. Both veteran defenders are expensive, and are expected to be told that a simple restructuring won’t be enough: They’ll either take a pay cut or get cut.

Didn't see this coming before the D players.

Thanks Smash!

Thanks Colston, once again being a team player freeing up money when he didn't have to

I really hope just cutting Will Smith would cost less than keeping him around, IMO he's one of the major reasons why some of the younger guys aren't getting playing time

Can someone fact-check this: Has Marques Colston exceeded 1,000 yards receiving in 7 of his first 8 season?

Only about five other receivers have done this right?

(and yet they still won't vote him to the Pro Bowl...... sigh)

He'll get in the HOF, it will just take a little longer. Thing is, he could put up those numbers for several more years with Brees. Unlike most receivers, he doesn't rely on speed. It's not even part of his game to be honest. It's all about size and ball placement. He's a TE in WR clothing.

Its true and he doesn't get voted to the probowl because his yearly totals are never really high, he is just very consistant.
