Gonna miss him.
That explains how Colston excelled so well in finding holes in the zone.

A while back it was Joe Horn, now Colston ... big shoes to fill again at WR1.

Re: Marques Colston says goodbye and thanks to Saints

Knowing how loved and respected Colston is by the Saints and fans, is there a chance the failclowns would try to sign Colston to rub it in our face?

It was bad enough that Hebert, Anderson & Horn played for them! It would break my heart if Colston went there!

I guess it would depend on if Colston still wants to play.

That said he may be the only legit receiver in this class so he will not fall to us.
I wouldn't worry about missing out on a WR in the first round. There are plenty of good WRs that can be found in later rounds. Colston, Graham, Stills proved that one

He's going out quietly too. Thanks for the memories.

According to the Score editors this is a bad wr class.

Wide Receivers in the NFL need to be able to catch the ball - consistently...

that ability is starting to become a lost art in the NFL...

This is not a deep class and everything I'm reading projects this as the worst class in the modern, contemporary era...

Having that many weapons could extend Brees career a year or two. As his accuracy and arm deminish these guys have the ability to make the tough catches. I am totally on board with your assesment. Treadwell at 1 then defense, then guard and TE. I think we can find a guard in FA. He wont have to acclimate to the speed of the NFL and can step right in to protect Drew. Even great guards have trouble acclimating to the NFL as rookies. Offensive line is a position group where experience is almost as important as talent. Almost.
