Re: Colston Released

This is the side of football that sucks......even though we know it happens all the time. I just hope he's done done and retires with only playing for one team, which is pretty rare these days.

I heard a lot of teams need receivers this year. Which really ticks me off that we waited and waited until everyone else wanted what we wanted too.

There are some reports coming out of workouts and all that he lacks speed. Honestly, we have speed already on our team. His name is Cooks and so far speedy receivers have done squat for us other than him(cough TJ or TG cough). Physical toughness, which is what he possesses, is what we need.

That said he may be the only legit receiver in this class so he will not fall to us.

Re: Colston Released

I never expected them to keep Colston another year. For all he has done in the past, there was no real reason to bring him back. He just kind of gets in the way when he's out there. Makes a play once in a while, but he doesn't do anything that can't be done by pretty much any receiver. He simply did not age very well on the field.

But I enjoyed his good years and wish him the best.
