Free agent WR Marques Colston said he is still mulling his NFL future.
With a shoulder injury still at least a month away from being ready, Colston is taking his time. "Once I'm done with rehab," Colston said. "I'll see what's out there." The 33-year-old has not received any known interested since being released in February and has taken an advisor job with an athletic testing company. It is likely his playing days are over.

Marques Colston has been hired as a special advisor for Sport Testing Inc., a company designed to test professional athletes' physical abilities.

Released by the Saints back in February, Colston is staying busy outside of the NFL. He's yet to formally hang up his cleats, but Colston, 33, hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest since he was let go. Colston also is a minority owner of the Arena league's Philadelphia Soul. He's from Pennsylvania.

Saints released WR Marques Colston.

He was cut with a "failed physical" designation, meaning Colston isn't 100 percent. He was owed $3.2 million, all of which will come off the Saints' cap. A seventh-round steal in the 2006 draft out of Hofstra, Colston spent a full decade in New Orleans and is the franchise's all-time leader in receptions (711), receiving yards (9,759), and receiving TDs (72). Going on age 33, however, Colston has run out of gas. The Saints seem to believe Brandon Coleman can take over as their "big slot" receiver between Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

ESPN's Mike Triplett reports the Saints are expected to release Marques Colston "in the coming days."

Colston is set to make just $3.2 million in 2016, but looked a shell of his former self last season. He hasn't surpassed the 1,000 yard mark since 2012. Cutting Colston would free up $3.2 million in cap space, but leave behind $2.7 million in dead money. Colston is one of the most important players in Saints history, but moving on would be the right decision.

ESPN's Mike Triplett considers Marques Colston a candidate for a pay cut.

Colston is owed $3.2 million in salary/bonuses with a $5.9M cap hit. He isn’t a lock to return after playing a part-time role last year. The Saints have Brandon Coleman as an in-house replacement.

Saints declared WR Marques Colston, LT Terron Armstead, TE RaShaun Allen, OLB Dannell Ellerbe, DT Kaleb Eulls, QB Garrett Grayson and OT Andrus Peat inactive for Week 17 against the Falcons.

Colston finishes the season and perhaps his Saints' career inactive. Colston had just three games with more than 40 yards on his way to a 45/520/4 line this year. Owed $3.2 million in salary and bonuses with a cap hit of $5.9 million in 2016, there is a real chance the veteran receiver is released this offseason. At the very least he will be asked to restructure his deal.

Marques Colston (chest) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Colston's Week 16 absence led to more playing time for Brandon Coleman, who caught four passes for 45 yards. Although we've thought this in years past, too, there's reason to believe Colston has played his final snap as a Saint.
Fri, Jan 1, 2016 03:32:00 PM

Marques Colston (chest) has yet to resume practicing.

It appears the veteran is going to miss his second straight game. Due $3.2 million next season, Colston's Saints future is up in the air as his play rapidly deteriorates.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 05:26:00 PM

Marques Colston (chest) is out for Week 16 against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Saints tipped their hand a few days ago by activating Seantavius Jones from the practice squad. Colston had been playing well with three touchdowns over his last two games. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead will both get a boost with Colston sidelined.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 08:21:00 AM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports Marques Colston (questionable, chest) isn't expected to play Sunday against Jacksonville.

The Saints promoted Seantavius Jones from the practice squad Thursday, suggesting Colston would be held out. With Ben Watson (knee) questionable, Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks are in line for bigger roles. Colston will likely be shut down if his status doesn't improve by early next week.

Marques Colston (chest) is questionable for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

Colston will likely be a game-time decision. The Saints roster moves this week suggest he'll be held out.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 05:54:00 PM

Marques Colston (chest) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

That clouds his status for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. After being a non-factor early in the year, Colston has come on strong with three touchdowns over his last two games. Rookie Brandon Coleman and recent practice squad call-up Seantavius Jones could see more playing time if Colston ends up sitting.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 04:40:00 PM

Marques Colston snagged two of four targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

Colston had a touchdown called back on a penalty late in the first half but redeemed himself by securing an 11-yard touchdown as part of the Saints’ fourth quarter rally. Three of Colston’s four touchdowns this year have come in his last two games. He’ll be a WR3/4 against Jacksonville in the penultimate game of the regular season.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 12:35:00 AM

Marques Colston delivered six catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets in the Saints' Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.

Colston has now caught 71 touchdowns from Drew Brees, the fifth-highest total for any quarterback-receiver combo in NFL history. Colston’s first score came on a play-action fake to C.J. Spiller in the first quarter. Later he beat Jude Adjei-Barimah on a rub play for a one-yard score. Before Sunday, Colston hadn’t scored two touchdowns in a game since Week 14 of the 2013 season. Given his boom-or-bust nature, it will be hard to trust Colston as anything more than a WR4 next week against Detroit.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:07:00 PM

Marques Colston caught 1-of-3 targets for 14 yards in New Orleans' Week 13 loss to the Panthers.

Even with Willie Snead (calf) sidelined, Colston couldn't get anything going. The 32-year-old former WR1 will be a WR5 afterthought for the fantasy playoffs.
