New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston restructured his contract Friday, March 6, and will return in 2015.
Huddle Up: Colston, who will turn 32 in June, will be back for a 10th season in the Big Easy, but his numbers have been trending in the wrong direction. After three straight 80-plus-catch, 1,000-yard seasons from 2010-12, the WR's targets, receptions and yardage have decreased in each of the past two years -- leaving him at 59-902-5 on 100 targets last season -- and it's hard to foresee the trend reversing course at this juncture.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston will probably return at a reduced rate from his $7 million salary in 2015, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.
Huddle Up: The targets, receptions and receiving yards have declined in each of the past three seasons for Colston, who will turn 32 in June, and it's an optimal time for the Saints to ask the WR to make some salary adjustments.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take a pay cut this offseason, because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2015 and count $9.7 million against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: The Saints can pretty much trot out anyone at wide receiver and get production, so if Colston wants to stick around in New Orleans he'll likely have to reduce that cap number.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston was held without a reception Sunday, Sept. 14. It was the first time he didn't record a catch in a game since 2008.
Huddle Up: It wasn't all Joe Haden, who spent plenty of time trying to man up with Jimmy Graham. You know the Saints like to spread the ball around, but for Colston to go without a catch is highly disturbing.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) came off the field during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 26, and talked with a trainer before watching the rest of practice from the sidelines.
Huddle Up: The Saints have been extremely cautious with Colston this preseason in an effort to keep him healthy, so the hope is that taking him out of practice is more of a precautionary measure than something that fantasy owners will need to worry about heading into the regular season.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston said he feels much healthier this season after being plagued by a foot injury the last year or two. The team has limited his workload this preseason to keep him fresh for the season.
Huddle Up: Colston is a valuable cog in the mighty Saints passing game. If his foot injury is behind him and he's able to stay on the field he'll claim a significant portion of Drew Brees' annual 5,000 yards, and a healthy dose of touchdowns to boot.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) said he is feeling healthy this season. 'I feel really good,' Colston said. 'The foot I know was addressed earlier in the offseason. It's really not an issue. I've been able to get out here with really no restrictions and just run around and feel good.'
Huddle Up: Colston is coming off 5-year lows in receiving yards (943) and TDs (5) in 2013, but he remains Drew Brees' No. 2 target behind TE Jimmy Graham. And if Graham doesn't get a new contract and winds up holding out for any length of time in protest of his franchise tag, Colston quickly ascends to the top of the list.
