Looks like Marques Colston will stay with the Saints. Drew Brees' number one wideout agreed to a five-year deal worth $40 million. Reports say that $19 million of his contract are guaranteed.
I don't think this should surprise anyone, as Colston and Brees have great chemistry and that offense is pretty good. The Saints and Colston are pretty valuable to each other. Now, the Saints are probably turning their attention to retaining OG Carl Nicks, who would be among the best free agents at any position if he hits the market later today.
With another free agent wide receiver re-signing with his team, I think it is less and less likely that the Browns get an impact "number one" in free agency. We might add depth or get a veteran who could help us out, but I think it would for a guy who is good in a specialized role at best.
I think Heckert is taking a smart approach to free agency, as "big name" players who are available are often not worth what it takes to get them. With that said, I still wouldn’t mind going after DE Mario Williams.
