Just read about it on ESPN. Wonder if they offered him what his dead money is going to be or just decided to release him.

Re: Colston's Impending Release

I know his play has dropped off significantly but I really wish we could sign him to a fair contract and keep him in NOLA until he retires. He could still maybe be #2 or #3. Idk. It's just kind of sad.

Never know until it actually happens. Could squeeze one more year financially if everyone wants it, we'll see. I am holding out hope.

Re: Colston's Impending Release



If this really is the end for Colston then thanks for all the catches, all the first downs, all the catches over the middle, all the touchdowns, the leadership and all the team records you have accomplished. Thanks for showing the youth of today how to play wide receiver in the NFL without being a selfish loud mouth diva. Thanks for every play you made to bring a SuperBowl trophy to New Orleans

Greatest WR in Saints history
