The NFL free agent market opens up today and we can already take one big name off the list of potential stars looking for a new home. The New Orleans Saints have agreed to a brand new 5-year-deal with one of Drew Brees’ favorite targets Marques Colston.
Brees has been publicly unsatisfied with the team’s choice to place the franchise tag on him. Maybe this move will help make him a little happier.
Colston off the market now. Really like his game. The other Saints WR though, Meachem, not as big of a fan.

Colston re-ups for 5 years in NO. Best fit for both sides. Colston is a huge weapon over the middle for the Saints
