A great WR that was passed on in the pro-bowl time and time again. He made some great highlights in his career. I hate to see him go but father time finally got him. Good luck in whatever you do. I'll remember you.

Sad day- one of my top three favs ever
To be honest I don't believe he is worth 2.5 million a year. Love him and he is one of my fav Saints of all time but he at best is our #3 WR going into next year. More than likely our #4 or 5.

The greatest WR to never be voted to a Pro Bowl

Re: Colston's Impending Release

It seems like it was just yesterday that we were talking about this 7th round rookie from Hofstra that was impressing everyone in training camp. Thanks for the memories #12. Gonna miss you.

He will always be one of our best. If they do let him go I think it makes the likelyhood of our first round pick being a reciever very high. Laquan Treadwell.

Re: Colston's Impending Release

Great individual who made the others around him better.

The idea of him playing elsewhere is making me physically ill.

He probably could have still been a little productive but his presence limits the snaps for Coleman and Snead. They need to be on the field as much as Cooks to get more targets.
Just because he is on the team doesnt mean they have to play him. Give Coleman, Cooks, Snead all the snaps and just use Colston as you would any other 4th or 5th wideout. And that would be under the assumption that there isnt another option that is better. Nothing says he would have to take snaps away from anyone. That being said I agree there is no reason to keep him on for nostagias sake. If there is a better option you gotta take it. Wouldnt surprise me if we see him back mid season if there is an injury. The Saints have proven they are willing to cut ties with fan favorites and major producers if they think it will help the team. Happened with Reggie, Moore, Ivory, Stinch, Gleason etc etc. and several others.
