Free Agent WR Marques Colston Plans To Consider NFL Opportunities After Rehab

It’s been a while since we heard anything about free agent WR Marques Colston. However, he recently mentioned in an interview with PennLive on Friday that he’s in wait-and-see mode.

Once I’m done with rehab, I’ll see what’s out there,” said Colston, who’s working his way back from a shoulder injury.

While a return to the NFL for the 2016 season is a possibility, Colston has done a good job of lining up off-the-field opportunities should he call it a career.

“That’s always been the plan,” said Colston. “I’ve been going at it hard for four or five years, just building skill sets and building opportunities to set myself up for good things after football.”

However, Colston said that he still isn’t ruling anything out at this point in time.

Right now, there’s just no rush,” Colston said.

Colston, 33, is a former seventh-round pick of the Saints back in 2006. He has spent all 10 years of his NFL career in New Orleans, but was unfortunately cut loose in a move that freed up $3.2 million in available cap space for the Saints back in February.

In 2015, Colston appeared in 13 games and caught 45 passes for 520 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 85 receiver out of 121 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
