Saints WR Colston expects rest to equal success
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. - Marques Colston says he made resting his ailing left foot a priority during the offseason and feels far healthier than he did a year ago.
Colston heads into his ninth season as New Orleans' all-time leading receiver, but is coming off one of his least productive campaigns as a pro.
While his 75 catches for 943 yards and five touchdowns represented a solid statistical line last season, his 63 yards per game were the fewest of his career.
Yet at 31, Colston finds his role growing, particularly as it pertains to leadership. Nearly every other receiver on the roster has one year or less of regular season experience.
Colston says he's eager to be a resource for young receivers and expects to play better this season.
