St. Louis Rams Free Agent Options: Marques Colston

New, comments


Wide receiver, wide receiver, wide receiver... It seems to be the the #1 need among Rams fans? This year's free agent crop actually has a fairly rich of talented pass catching stars. One of the free agents that will garner a ton of attention is New Orleans Saints receiver Marques Colston. Stephen Corkran of the Contra Costa Times thinks Colston may be at the top of the Raiders shopping list? Would he be the guy to fill the Rams need at wide receiver? He has the stats (see after the break) to make a valid case for pursuing him, but what would he cost? Word today that the Rams are shopping for a "CAP Guru" in the form of Omar Khan may signal that the Rams are thinking of making a serious move in free agency this year.

The Saints have some serious spending to do this year if they plan to keep their powerful offense intact. Drew Brees' new contract is going to cost a pretty penny. They have some tough choices ahead. Will Colston be a luxury they decide they can do without?
