According to the National Football Post, New Orleans’ Marques Colston could become a free agent by the mid-March mark as the Saints have a couple of other major free agent priorities. Here’s what they wrote.
*It’s possible Marques Colston will be a former Saint in the near future. The Saints have made no attempts to re-sign the star wide receiver up to this point.

When it was all said and done, coming to New Orleans seemed like the right thing to do. I didn't make a ledger and compare head coaches and quarterbacks. I just felt like for my wife, Maria, and I, at this moment in time, New Orleans...

SAN DIEGO (CHARGERS) The wife of Chargers defensive tackle Tommie Harris passed away Sunday evening in Oklahoma after suffering a stroke or a brain aneurysm.

Facing must-win season, Bolts need to keep one of their best players.
The Chargers will have to make a move at nose tackle, be it re-signing Antonio Garay, drafting a replacement or acquiring a two-gap plugger in free agency. That final option is more appealing this year than most, as there are several 3-4 nose tackles set to hit the open market.
There are going to be two main tasks for the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, bolstering their passing game and deciding how to handle their big name players that could potentially become free agents.
