Do you want him to start?

Do you have an upgrade? Be careful what you ask for without having a capable starter in place.

Cutting bait now is the thing to do. He was a shell of his former this season and there ain't no fountain of youth. Great Saint. Great guy. Simply not worth the salary at this point of his career.

Re: Marques Colston willing to take a pay cut to stay with New Orleans Saints

he is an aging vet that has paid his dues and cashed in for them. pay cut is over due as we all know

Issue at hand

1) we have turned over the WR corp so much can you ill afford to let yet another vet go with all the puppies running around on the field?

2) LEADERSHIP. granted he is more of the lead by example type and not the loud mouth raw raw type but a leader non the less. we found out we lost almost all of that last year in locker room so dare we give the inmates even more control?

restructure and/or extend it to make it cap friendly.

Just do not take yet another leader off this team

plus our WR corp is still one of the most over rated groups in the NFL and has been for years. there is no one ready to step in right now.

Magnanimous to say he'll take the pay cut, but wasn't that already obvious?

We hold the cards on this one: he has more value in our system, and the going rate for a 32 year old with 60 catches and a more than a handful of drops can't be more than 4-5 million

Agreed.
I think Colston will willingly restructure to a team friendly deal because he is a true team player. He knows his past season was bad and has said so, he was just as disappointed in it. If he had lit it up last season, then he would be prone to ask for bigger money.

He'll be back because he is smart and knows his value is in this system.
