According to NOLA.com:

Saints leading receiver Marques Colston released after 10 seasons

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has been released.

Colston concludes his Saints career as the leading receiver in franchise history, establishing team records for receptions (711), yards (9,759) and touchdowns (72). His 66.8 receiving yards-per-game ranked second only to Joe Horn.



Known as the "Quiet Storm," Colston's personality was a stark contrast to many receivers of his generation. He didn't seek out attention, and often shunned it, in times of both success and failure.

He must not have wanted to restructure.

Good luck Colston.

Re: Colston Released

I'm sure they offered him the 2.5 million dead money as a 1 year contract. Stupid if they didn't and stupid if he refused.

Re: Colston Released

With the Browner release that will give us 11 million in cap space. With Brees and Morestead coming up we should be close to 20 million. Better than any of us thought I'm sure.

Re: Colston Released

Thank You, Marques Colston, for being the consummate professional...

You played the game with a stoic confidence that made success even sweeter...

Talking media heads, distracted by their own self-promotion, missed out on your terrific game...

But as Saints fans, we're forever grateful for the effort and success you gave us...

And we ask your forgiveness, as we feel sorry for ourselves as we know we'll miss you donning the Black and Gold...
