My 10 year old son yelled YES!!!! When he read it. I had to put him in check and make him understand how he is one of the best players in Saints history and just how much Colston meant to the Superbowl run. Very Very sad news.

Re: Colston's Impending Release

Keep him at what cost????? Keep a #4 or 5 WR at 6 million? Even at 2 million it would be a mistake. I love the guy just like the rest of you but why keep him when we could drft or sign a guy for 700 K? Sorry to see him go but this is a business.

Re: Colston's Impending Release

A lot of people are often like "why don't we keep this dude around, hes a good leader". And while I don't dispute these sentiments at times, understanding how a locker room works is very crucial to understand why these older guys are often released. Sometimes having older guys around kind of gets in the way of newer guys learning how to lead, because the older guys carry so much gravity.

Re: Colston's Impending Release

I sure hope they eventually bring him back at halftime and let him do a victory lap riding around the perimeter of the Dome, on the back of a convertible, like they have done with Deuce and a couple other guys. I would cheer my lungs out for that. Tears were welling up in my eyes that day when they rolled Deuce around the Dome on the trunk of the convertible, I will never ever forget it. Would like to have that moment with Colston, for sure.

Retire his #12. But give the man one more year at a reduced rate.

I bet his mama is proud!

His dead money is 2.5 million. Offer him that and see how bad he wants to be a Saint. Maybe for 2.9 million seeing we would have to pay his replacement 4 to 500K.
