Saints Wr Colston Scheduled To Become Free Agent In 2012

Recommended Posts

He wont take the hometown discount to stay a Saint. Of course, the Saints are all about the money...

I feel like the Patriots and the Colts are the only teams with loyal players who arent all about the money...lol

Lol yeah I hear you. I feel like that's because Indy has such a team-based atmosphere.... lot of professional guys here which is one of the biggest reasons I'm a fan. Arguably the only loud mouth on the team is Wayne, and he's mild compared to the likes of TO or Ocho Sucko

i agree. One of the best things i like about this team is the way we just keep things cool without bragging. A win is a win and on to the next game. And its not just the fans but the players too.

I found it so irritating that the Saints players and fans rubbed their Super Bowl win all over us. They won and thats it. They still brag about it today!

The Patriots seem to like older FAs with oddball career paths who buy in to the concept of a last chance at a championship - kind of like the Yankees (the thought of Wade Boggs riding around Yankee stadium on a horse like he was a conquering hero after spending his entire career with the Red Sox was galling to me - and I don't care about either team).

The Colts obviously put the emphasis on character - which I wholeheartedly support - but I don't think that there have been too many home-town discounts. A lot of our "kept" players are very well paid. I doubt that the Patriots have had too many discounts either. If someone takes less money to stay with a winning franchise it's usually because they think that it will provide them with more of an opportunity for success (and money) down the road - such as when Reggie decided to stay with the Colts as #2 WR when he could have been "the star" elsewhere. He knew which side his bread was Peytoned on.

    • You want to use our early second round pick on a RB? Out of the 4 core units (Pass O, Rush O, Pass D, Rush D), rushing O is easily the best right now. Give me DT, DE, OT, WR, etc after the 1st pick.   Based on unit performance, age, etc. 1. QB 2a. DT or 2b. OT/OG 4. WR 5. DE 6. S 7. MLB 8. TE 9. CB 10. RB  
    • I know this they have to give us a lot of picks to be able to do that I was pointing out how interesting this guy's prediction was
    • No prediction here, after the last couple of weeks, I'm just going to sit and try to enjoy watching a Colts win?   
    • I don't care for Hurts, but I like him a whole lot more than Fromm.....   It happens every single year....    Yup, and yup.   Fields is a true Soph. He won't be in the draft unless it's the XFL..   Perhaps Ballard like Love, and doesn't think he goes prior to our middle pick... Perhaps he's made a decision to take best available in the middle, and Love falls to our pick, and Ballard sees him as best available. You don't always have to go all in to get the guy you want early.   If Ballard wants to move up, he can package our first three picks (1R, 2R, 2R) and likely go up to #4 if he wants to. If Love is his guy, he likely doesn't need to go to #4.    Burrow looks incredibly good. Herbert has been talked about for 2 years now.  Love might have the highest ceiling of any QB this year, but also a lower floor than Burrow or Herbert. That's without even talking about Tua... Regardless, 4 pretty strong candidates.   Here's NFL.com's review of him recently. They are basically describing a Reich O...    I mean, going to rejoin Yost at TX Tech might improve his stock a little, but he's likely to still get a first round grade this year. I just don't see him staying in college. But who knows.
