Saints’ Marques Colston Reportedly About To Be Released [Video]
Mick Jagger penned the lyric, "Time waits for no one. No favors has he." It appears Marques Colston's time with the New Orleans Saints has come to an end.
A report from Fox8 indicates he's about to be released in the next few days. It seemed unlikely the 7th round pick out of Hofstra would have the best career of any wide receiver in Saints' history.
"The Quiet Storm" has played 10 seasons for the black and Gold, totaling 711 receptions for 9,759 yards, and 72 touchdowns.
Colston turns 33 on June 5th. Releasing the veteran wideout will save the Saints 3.2 million against the salary cap. He'll pocket 2.7 million.
Not bad severance pay. Here are a few of the many memorable moments he's given us.
