I hope he doesn't insult the Saints by asking for too much considering he was in the top tier of drops. Great player, one of the best for us, but the ride is close to over.

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

Colston is one of my favorite Saints of All Time...

Fiery Competitor without the Prima Donna Bullshinski...

My concern is his healthy, namely that arthritic foot/ankle or a Payton would say "Leg" injury and if the pain is affecting his play...

We all know the drops last season were totally uncharacteristic of him...

Did notice on a few plays he was unable to run away from defenders, much less keep running, despite having a step on said defender...

I'd love to have him retire a Saint and be in the Saints WR corps next season, but WTH is going on with that "lower leg" ailment?!?

That is the real question...

Please clarify "small, mild cut?"

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

For the record, I want MC back. I think something personal was going on last season. He is too good of a pro to drop as many balls as he did last year and besides that he still has value and can help this club win games.

Personal, maybe?!?

I really think he was playing in pain...

If his lower leg injury is degenerative, similar to Vilma's knee, then it's not a matter of if, but when...

Man has been such a class act, sure hope he knows his efforts are loved, appreciated...

Just don't get any ****ing ideas of going to Atlanta...
